There is some film footage that exists of Gillespie trading back and forth 
with Louis Armstrong.  I'ts not "dixieland" per se, Dizzy plays in his 
normal bebop style, but I recall it being interesting and quite good.  I 
believe it was on a PBS documentary of Louis that aired about a year ago.

All the best,
Rob McCallum
