Sean Jones’ Dizzy SpellzThe Loft
  • General Admission: $39
  • UCSD Student: $9


Trumpeter, musical director Sean Jones and choreographer, tap dancer, and vocalist Brinae Ali have teamed up to create a piece that fuses elements of jazz, tap, hip-hop, and bebop to articulate the social vernacular of the African-American experience.

Inspired by the music and life story of Dizzy Gillespie, Dizzy Spellz offers an Afro-futuristic lens to explore the intersection of cultural and spiritual dilemmas with the African Diaspora. From Dizzy’s coming of age through the racial and social dynamics in the Deep South, to his creating and curating the bebop movement in New York, to his spiritual journey to Africa, and, finally, his delving into Afro-Cuban music and the Baha’i Faith, Dizzy was a complex man well ahead of his time and with plenty of stories to tell.
