The late jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie is remembered not only for his talent but also for how his cheeks puffed out like a frog's as he blew his horn.

Writer Jim Doherty says that one day Gillespie was talking with Chicago Symphony trumpeter Adolph (Bud) Herseth. Herseth, a White man, is known for turning beet red when he plays. Gillespie, who was Black, kidded with Herseth, "Bud, how come your cheeks don't puff our when you play?"

Herseth replied, "Diz, how come your face doesn't get red when you play?"

Two great trumpeters. Two different styles. God has made us all unique, and creation shouts the message that God enjoys that diversity.
