Dizzy Gillespie began introducing high-caliber musicians to the world back in the ’40s, so it’s easy to see why this alumni group contains several generations’ worth of stellar talent. Roy Hargrove steers a star-studded cadre, and on Oct 21 extra guests like Jimmy Heath will be on hand to acknowledge what would have been Diz's 96th birthday.
