Orleans and joining a band in Chicago and is seen at a recording session
and performance. At the Jazz Workshop in San Francisco, Gillespie reveals
his mercurial personality. As one of the founders of bop, he helped to
introduce not only a new approach to jazz but also the bop vocabulary
and way of dressing.
Continued: The pianist-conductor-composer Dave Brubeck is shown at the
final concert of the Brubeck Quartet in December 1967 in Pittsburgh and
at another performance at the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill. Charles Lloyd, one of the jazz world's newest stars, puts into his
music all of the personal rapport he feels with today's younger
generation. At Reed College in Portland, Oregon, Lloyd and his Lloyd Quartet
communicate with his youthful following with his music and words.
