The Music of Dizzy Reece

Routes in Jazz

This concert honours legendary Jamaican-born jazz trumpeter Dizzy Reece’s accomplishments and artistry as well as celebrating West Indians who departed the Caribbean on the Windrush and contributed to rebuilding Britain following World War II.

Dizzy Reece’s unique approach to his instrument and blistering yet warm tone gained him the opportunity to record for the iconic Blue Note Records label. He also shared the bandstand with some of the greatest international jazz legends including Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon, and Miles Davis.
