“ I remember getting this as a present from my sister on my 11th birthday. 

And I just remember how excited I was - and I listened to that record thousands of times. 

It wasn’t my first Dizzy Gillespie record but I think it was one of the most important because I couldn’t stop listening to it. 

Dizzy - Roy back and forth, Dizzy - Roy back and forth. 

So - there you have it!”
