Dizzy Gillespie live on stage: Salt Peanuts

American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, composer and occasional singer Dizzy Gillespie peforms Salt Peanuts live on stage, likely at the Ontario Place Forum in Toronto, circa 1971. We love the fun audience warm up in the beginning. His singular, trumpet-playing cheeks appear at 2m05s.

There’s more Dizzy Gillespie in the archives.
