important jazz history movie
20 October 2003 | by silverfernSee all my reviews

Most interesting documentary about Dizzy's trip to Havana. Dizzy politely excuses himself from Castro's appointed guides and goes with the cab driver who is for real, Arturo Sandoval; to take him around to the places where real jazz is played. Later Arturo is featured on stage with Dizzy playing jazz. This is the first time ever that the free world gets to hear Sandoval. It is a must see for anyone who wants to see the movie with Andie Garcia portraying Sandoval in, For Love of Country. I am waiting for a DVD release so that I can enter it into my collection. Very important mission for Dizzy Gillespie in 1988; for him to play with Cuban jazz artists who have not had to suppress their drums as did the American black African slaves who were forced to give up their drums by the slave owners.
