Producer, musician, entrepreneur and educator Corey Butler is set to curate an exciting tribute to one of the most important and influential figures in jazz: Dizzy Gillespie.

Butler, the musical director of the Juno Award-winning Toronto Mass Choir, has assembled and all-star lineup of musicians to pay homage to the genre-breaking catalogue of this jazz virtuoso, including the Cuban influences that he introduced to North American audiences in the mid-20th century.

The starring role will be filled by Alexis Baro, a Cuban-born trumpeter whose latest album Sandstorm is nominated at this year’s Juno Awards for solo jazz album of the year. Baro has performed on more than 300 recordings and is a Global Music Award winner and multiple National Jazz Awards nominee.
