Two legends of Jazz in one programme - both were members of the legendary Earl 'Fatha' Hines Orchestra but one used lyrics to express himself and the other played trumpet. Billie Eckstein was the first romantic black male singer in popular music. His smooth baritone and distinctive vibrato crossed colour barriers to make him one of the most popular singers of his era. Dizzy Gillespie, like Billie, helped popularise the idiosyncratic style of modern jazz known as be-bop. Known for his on stage clowning and bullfrog style of puffing out his cheeks while he played, Dizzy influenced generations of jazz musicians with his distinctive sound.
