Just months before recording Dizzy Gillespie Jam live at the Montreux Jazz Festival, the legendary trumpeter and bebop pioneer made a stop at the Arts & Culture Centre in St. John’s on January 19th, 1977.

Take a listen to the recently unearthed cassette bootleg of jazz giant Dizzy Gillespie live in St. John’s

Thanks to Rodney Mercer for this piece of history and to Alex Rumboldt for digitizing it!
