Gillespie, Dizzy (1917 – 1993)

An unusual vintage signed and inscribed album page by Gillespie. He writes, ‘Dear George & Betty, It was a ball. The same to you as me. Dizzy Gillespie, John Birks McGregor.’ Slight wrinkling, otherwise in fine condition. Gillespie has incorporate his birth name (‘John Birks’) in his signature — the ‘McGregor’ perhaps a joke relating to the surname of the dedicatee. Unusual in this format.
