The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra have
consistently moved between commissioning new music and performing repertory projects like this one. Tommy Smith and his troops turn their attention to the great Dizzy Gillespie this time round. The trumpeter took the lessons he learned in the course of creating the extended musical vocabulary of bebop with Charlie Parker into the big band arena in the late 40$, seasoned with a healthy pinch of Afro-Cuban vibes, and continued to lead large
ensembles until his death in 1993.
