Hello Black Single:
Today, TriState Black Singles would like to take a moment to celebrate John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie, the trumpet virtuoso. Dizzy Gillespie was born on October 21, 1917. Although Dizzy was born in Cheraw, South Carolina, he spent many years in New York and New Jersey (where he died in 1993).
Since TriState Black Singles reaches out to Black singles in New York, New Jersey & Connecticut, we like to consider Dizzy as “one of our own”. Dizzy stands tall with other creative music legends, like saxophonist Charlie Parker. Dizzy Gillespie will always be remembered as a musician who helped to develop bebop and modern jazz. Did you know that Dizzy Gillespie also developed Afro-Cuban jazz?
As a proud Black single, wouldn’t a memorable date night for you be an evening at a jazz club? Perhaps you could find a jazz club with an October salute to the world famous Dizzy Gillespie? Rest In Peace, Dizzy. You deserve it.
If you will be in Harlem (Manhattan New York) on Saturday, October 27th, please join TriState Black Singles at the Mist Harlem. We will sponsor Radio103.9’s Annual Masquerade party. Tickets are on sale at Radio1039ny.com or MistHarlem.com.
