The only name I know here for sure is Dizzy Gillespie! Jazz/Blues musician right? I don't recall the name Louis Bellson I'm afraid, but Estelle Bennett rings a bell. You didn't ACTUALLY share your age by the way, so no, you're not telling it at all!

I doubt it is showing your age because I am sure these musicians are still loved and listened to today even though they are no longer with us in life they are with us in spirit. There music still moves us and we will still continue to enjoy their music for a long time to come. Here are some links to find out whom they are if you don't know and what they did. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dizzy_Gillespie http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estelle_Bennett http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Bellson

Dizzy playing a Horn - This is a photo of Dizzy Gillespie playing a horn in 1955
Hello, 3SnuggleBunnies, I searched who they were just to make sure I was right about it. Been a long time and Estelle Bennett didn't do much after the break up of the band. But you can find alot of information on them at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
