Dizzy Gillespie’s nephew is working on a new in-depth documentary about the be-bop legend, titled ‘Dizzy 101’. Producer, drummer and MC G. Craig “Butter” Glanville has announced a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo to raise funds for the project, which has so far been paid for out of his own pocket. He says he’s exhaustively researching and going deep into the life of his uncle, featuring musicians from the past and present and focussing on the incredible life story of Dizzy, and how it continues to inspire people today. Including the story of his famous trumpet, his band-leading, scat singing, many showbiz appearances and even his brief political career!

In addition to funds, Glanville is inviting contributions of stories, encounters, photos and film of Gillespie for possible use. More details can be found at www.indiegogo.com/projects/dizzy-101-the-dizzy-gillespie-documentary
