The Dizzy Gillespie Centennial, featuring Adia Dobbins
Thursday, February 22, 2018 @ 7pm | The Redmoor
Dizzy Gillespie was a visionary architect of bebop, a peerless trumpet virtuoso, and a gifted educator, dancer and raconteur. The CCJO will dig deep into the musical world of this jazz icon. As much a revolution as it was a movement, bebop marked a decisive line between old and new, ushering in the modern era of jazz. Adia Dobbins will also grace the stage with several vocal favorites.
Concert Sponsors: Matt and Holly Kraick
Opening Act: Joining us to open the show will be the Cincinnati Youth Jazz Collaborative.
