Latest Google Doodle celebrates Dizzy Gillespie

When it comes to Google's Doodles, you never know what the search giant is going to do next.

Whether it's an interactive display that captures the imagination of an entire generation, or recognition of times and dates and birthdays that many people wouldn't even think about, Google's front page 'occasional artwork' is usually a pleasant surprise.

Today's Doodle is no exception.  Celebrating what would have been his 93rd birthday, Google paid tribute to jazz great Dizzy Gillespie.

An excellent rundown of Gillespie's life can be found at Wikipedia here.
