Author Norman C. Weinstein so loved A Night in Tunisia that he wrote a book about the images of Africa. In A Night in Tunisia: Imaginings of Africa in Jazz (you can read excerpts here), Weinstein remembers how he fell in love with jazz many years ago, after listening repeatedly to Dizzy Gillespie’s A Night in Tunisia. During his musical career, Gillespie performed A Night in Tunisia all over the world; the last time was in 1989, at the Royal Festival Hall in London. Arturo Sandoval was on trumpet and Sayyd Abdul al-Khabbyr played the Bari sax.
