    C’mon! Dizzy doesn’t really share the Bahá’í teachings with Jim Seals and Dash Crofts (get their names right!), but it is always interesting to find out personal viewpoints of Bahá’ís, particularly if they are such famous artists. I met Dizzy a couple of times, and there was nothing new in the video. Rather he had a few ideas that he kept repeating from interview to interview, such as the master painting, progressive revelation within jazz and why he will not be a candidate for the US presidency. However, it was nice to see Dizzy, Jim and Dash making music (Gimme that New Time Religion) and chatting together. This is a valuable historical document!
