EDITORS’ NOTES

This trumpet icon never lost his touch with the uptempo bebop compositions he helped bring into fashion, as on the vibes-heavy rendition of “Anthropology”. In the '50s and '60s, Gillespie dabbled in pop songs (“Over the Rainbow”) and brassy big-band charts with a touch of Hollywood razzle-dazzle (“Doodlin'”)—but no matter the format, his searing and boisterous playing was a constant source of energy.
