History has produced its share of great artists and great people—John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie was both. As a performer, he left behind an incredible record of innovation and inspiration, as a composer, a broad repository of musical masterpieces, and as a man, a legion of friends, colleagues and compatriots who remember him with the same degree of love and esteem they reserve for his work.
The Dizzy Gillespie™ All-Star Big Band, a veritable who's who among jazz musicians, was formed in the summer of 1998 to perform Dizzy Gillespie's classic big band repertoire and continue the legacy left by the late master. The band includes many Gillespie alumni including Dizzy's closest associates and collaborators, James Moody. Other alumni include Frank Wess, Jimmy Heath, Paquito D`Rivera, Roy Hargrove, Antonio Hart, Claudio Roditi, Douglas Purviance and the band's Executive Director, John Lee, Dizzy's longtime bassist.~Patrice Lee

George V Johnson Jr.
first turned heads on his debut recording in 1981 with “Pharaoh Sanders” on the LP REJOICE and was credited with vocals and lyric on Coltrane’s classic “Moments Notice “, later reissued on CD by Evidence Music
Throughout the 80's George was mentored and performed regularly with “James Moody & Lou Donaldson”. Two of the greatest saxophonist in the history of Jazz. His close association with both Moody and Donaldson led to many Local & National Live Radio and Television Broadcasts as well as clubs, festivals and concert halls. . Johnson says, playing with Lou Donaldson is almost like singing with Charlie Parker. On Bird's classic "Now's the time" George and Donaldson sing and play together note for note without missing a beat. Swinging hard!
Johnson latest endeavors include skillfully writing lyrics to over 40 of Hank Mobley’s classic compositions. Critics are already saying this is one of the most important and extensive projects to be presented to the public from the Art of Jazz Vocalese realm in many years.
A breath of fresh air!
