“Dizzy pays homage to that great legend of bebop, John Birks ‘Dizzy’ Gillespie. Jean Evans, long-term family and personal friend of Gillespie, was inspired to design this font a¤er seeing a sample of his handwriting. Its raw, peculiar but elegant shapes and the arrhythmic cadence within & between words bring to typographic design a visual parallel to the extraordinary musical innovations of this twentieth-century genius.” – Font Bureau, 1995.
