The recent passing of John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie has, in the words of his former associate Quincy Jones, left “a huge hole in 20th-century music,” but there’s nothing spotty about this evening’s “Dedicated to Dizzy” concert, in which Dizzy collaborators like Slide Hampton, Paquito D’Rivera, and a quintet led by Roy Hargrove celebrate the spirit and legacy of the ebullient genius. At 8 p.m. at Wolf Trap’s Filene Center, 1624 Trap Rd., Vienna. $13-20. (703) 255-1860. (Reuben Jackson)
