Portrait of Dizzy Gillespie, 52nd Street, New York, N.Y., ca. May 1946 (photo by William Gottlieb)
Original caption in Down Beat:
The Street is Dizzy’s Oyster these days. Musicians, chicks (like the one shown with him here), business agents all flock around Dizzy to hear his frantic ideas, to copy his hats, even to learn how he wears his goatee.
