I love Jazz (and of all eras). One of my Jazz favorites is Dizzy Gillespie. This week I wanted to share his version of a famous bossa nova, entitled Desafinado. If I close my eyes I am transported back to a concert that I saw of him in New York City, in my teen years. My dad drove my friends and me to the City (a 3 1/2 hour drive from my hometown in Western Massachusetts-go Dad!) to see the concert. I still remember Dizzy’s cheeks. I couldn’t get over how much he reminded me of a chipmunk. He was amazing!
