AllMusics Scott Yanow wrote, Dizzy Gillespies contributions to jazz were huge, Gillespie was a trumpet virtuoso and improviser, building on the virtuoso style of Roy Eldridge but adding layers of harmonic complexity previously unheard in jazz.

His beret and horn-rimmed spectacles, his singing, his bent horn, pouched cheeks. In the s Gillespie, with Charlie Parker, became a figure in the development of bebop. Gillespie was born in Cheraw, South Carolina, the youngest of nine children of James, James was a local bandleader, so instruments were made available to the children.

Finally, their grudge for each other erupted over a thrown spitball, Calloway never thought highly of Gillespie, because he didnt view Gillespie as a good musician. Once during a rehearsal, a member of the band threw a spitball, already in a foul mood, Calloway decided to blame this on Gillespie. After the two men were separated, Calloway fired Gillespie, a few days later, Gillespie tried to apologize to Calloway, but he was dismissed.

In he put together his most advanced band, the piece Innovations in Modern Music Orchestra that included 16 strings, a woodwind section and its music ranged from the unique and very dense modern classical charts of Bob Graettinger to works that somehow swung despite the weight.

Kenton managed two tours during — but soon reverted to his usual piece lineup, then quite unexpectedly, Kenton went through a swinging period. The charts of such arrangers as Gerry Mulligan, Johnny Richards, the music was never predictable and could get quite bombastic, but it managed to swing while still keeping the Kenton sound.

These were, and are, played with mallets, the timpani were replaced by pailas criollas, which were originally designed to be used by street bands. Pailas are always hit with straight batons that have no additional head, hits are made on the top and on the metal sides. In a modern band the timbalero may also have a set to switch to for certain numbers. In French, timbales is also the word for timpani, thus the French refer to Cuban timbales as timbales latines, in Brazil, the term timbal refers to an unrelated drum.
