A Film by Gary Keys
Release date 6/21/11
Description: Gary Keys’ 1986 film capturing Dizzy Gillespie and band live in Redondo Beach, CA. The trumpeter/bandleader is in great form, leading his crack band through classics from various parts of his career. Filmed in Gary Keys signature style, with lots of closeups of the players, capturing all of the impish comedy and good times of the elder statesman of jazz.
This fun dvd was filmed at a live performance at the Redondo Beach Pier – an area of Southern California that I’m very familiar with.
Some live music dvds just leave me with the feeling that I wish I had been there to see it live. This dvd actually captures the live experience for me. Yes, it would have been nice to be there, but the dvd is satisfying to watch.
Dizzy Gillespie has amazing talent and a funny personality. In addition to the great music, there are a lot of close ups that give it a personal feel. It’s fun to see how Dizzy connects with the audience and the other band members who all had a great time at this intimate venue.
PRIZE – The publicist would like to give Dizzy Gillespie in Redondo to **2** of you (ARV $14.95)
