To celebrate Gillespie’s birthday, we look at Gillespie’s legacy and analyse a lighting piece that was inspired by this great 20th century jazz influencer and trendsetter! South Carolina native, John Birks Gillespie was born on October 21st 1917. With an active carrer as a jazz trumpeter in New York, Gillespie worked alognside legenday names like Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington.
Eraly 1930’s and 1940’s were considered to be Gillespie salad days, a time where Gillespie worked alongisde the greatest names in the jazz indsutry. A time where New York, and the United States as a whole were underoing massive cultural changes through music, sports and, above all of that, racial tensions. These decades helped defined the overall music industry, with the help of Gillespie and other great influencers.
