The Dizzy Gillespie Afro-Cuban Experience, a five-piece ensemble led by Dizzy Gillespie’s bassist John Lee, showcases the unique rhythms and well-loved melodies Gillespie’s oeuvre of Cuban bebop, or Cu-Bop. The great trumpeter developed the style with Cuban percussionist Chano Pozo in the 1940s and 1950s, and the Dizzy Gillespie Afro-Cuban Experience musicians carry forward his legacy today.
