Photo, Print, Drawing [Portrait of Dizzy Gillespie, Downbeat, New York, N.Y., ca. Aug. 1947] Caption from Down Beat: This is what the customers miss when the Diz directs his band, back to the audience. In the first photo we find an appealing, lullaby-like attitude, indicating the gentle treatment. Picture two makes one wonder what good the mike would do inside Gillespie. Climax comes in the third shot. It seems a little hard for Dizzy to believe what he hears. Last, the final bow of exhaustion, and the work on one number is over
