It all depends on what you know


 

Dizzy Gillespie in Zagreb in 1956, with the Yugoslav composer Nikica Kalogjera in the back seat, during a State Department goodwill tour. From a new photo exhibit of U.S. jazzmen as ambassadors of goodwill. Gillespie’s tour is perhaps most fondly remembered by fans, because it allowed his astonishing big band to stay together long after ordinary economics would have put an end to it.
