Dizzy's Club

Sean Jones: Dizzy Spellz

With trumpeter/vocalist Sean Jones, tap dancer/vocalist/flutist Brinae Ali, turntablist/keyboardist Wendell Patrick, pianist Zaccai Curtis, bassist Luques Curtis, and drummer Obed Calvaire.

Tonight we welcome modern trumpet icon and former Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra member Sean Jones back to Dizzy’s Club! In the unique program called Dizzy Spellz, the music and life story of Dizzy Gillespie are used as a lens to explore an intersection of cultural and spiritual dilemmas within the African Diaspora. Created with choreographer, tap dancer, and vocalist Brinae Ali, Dizzy Spells offers an innovative, Afro–futuristic fusion of jazz, tap, and bebop. From Dizzy’s coming of age through the racial and social dynamics in the Deep South, to his creating and curating the bebop movement in New York, to his spiritual journey to Africa, and, finally, his delving into Afro-Cuban music and the Baha’i Faith, Dizzy was a complex man well ahead of his time and with plenty of stories to tell. Don’t miss the debut performance of Dizzy Spellz at Jazz at Lincoln Center, also featuring Wendell Patrick, Obed Calvaire, and the Curtis Brothers.
