This week in 1993, trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, one of the towering figures in modern jazz, died in Englewood, N.J., at age 75. One of the most recognizable jazz figures — with his balloon cheeks and bent trumpet. He said another musician tripped over his trumpet stand and bent the bell upward at a 45-degree angle. Gillespie liked the sound and used bent horns from then on. In 1953, he took part in one of the most famous jazz concerts in history — a show recorded at Massey Hall in Toronto that also featured Parker, Powell, Roach and bassist Charles Mingus.
