Moody and Diz - Remembering James Moody and Dizzy Gillespie

Posted by Gregory J. Chamberlain

Thanks to Jazz Video Guy on YouTube for this great bit of jazz music history.

Charlie Fishman, who now produces the DC Jazz Festival, was Dizzy Gillespie's friend and manager during the last years of the trumpeter's remarkable life. Here, he recalls the close friendship of Dizzy and saxman James Moody. Enjoy!
