The Source is a live album by trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie recorded in Paris, France in 1973 and first released on the French America label.[1]


The Allmusic review stated "This CD finds trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie at age 55, just beginning to slip. Gillespie plays well enough... Still, the edge is missing on these explorations of standards and recent originals".[2]
