Be the first. He took the saxophone-influenced lines of Roy Eldridge and executed them faster, with greater ease and harmonic daring, playing his jagged melodies with abandon, reaching into the highest registers of the trumpet range, and improvising into precarious situations from which he seemed always to extricate himself. Other personal trademarks included his bent-bell trumpet and his enormous puffy cheeks that ballooned when playing. Although his most innovative period was over by the end of the s, Gillespie continued to perform at the highest level.
During the s he made several big band, small-group, and duet recordings with such players as Oscar Peterson and Count Basie that rank among his best work. As an active musical ambassador, Gillespie led several overseas tours sponsored by the U. State Department and traveled the world extensively, sharing his knowledge with younger players.
