World Statesman is an album by trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie recorded in 1956 and released on the Norgran label.[1] The album was reissued as part of the 2CD compilation Birks Works: The Verve Big Band Sessions.[2]


The Allmusic review states "This set introduced the new Dizzy Gillespie big band which was making headlines for the acclaim it received (and for the excitement it caused) during its State Department-sponsored world tours... this brilliant (and historic) orchestra really shows a great deal of spirit, power and creativity".[3]
