The legendary jazz orchestra – Kaunas Big Band, led by composer, trombonist and arranger Jievaras Jasinskis, has opened its 31st year of jazz this year and presents itself with an ambitious program “Kaunas Big Band & Dizzy”. This program features a bundle of Dizzy Gillespie compositions filled with virtuoso solo improvisations and afro-cubic rhythms. The beginning of the jazz revolution, the breakthrough of bebop with explosive energy – this is what we know in the world music panorama of Dizzy Gillespie, and the compositions Cubano Be, Manteca have become an exceptional face of a talented trumpet player, interpreted differently by Kaunas Big Band every time.
