Diz on Bird: from the Jazz Review
Peter Blasevick is among those now posting a copy of the Jazz Review from 1961, with a revealing interview by Felix Manskleid with Dizzy Gillespie on Charlie Parker — revealing not just about Bird, but about Diz, too. Check out the interviews in that issue on Basie and Budd Johnson, too. The Jazz Review: arguably a bargain even then, at 50 cents.
