Blues After Dark
Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Stitt
Absolutely freeEvery time we post a new video,we'll send you a notice by e-mail.
Recorded in 1958
This is an hour and a half of music...
Sonny Stitt on tenor saxophone on this one.
And as if we needed reminding, this performance is a demonstration of why Dizzy is considered one of the greatest players to ever pick up a trumpet.
These two jazz legends go way back.
Gillespie picked Stitt to take over Charlie Parker's place in his band in 1945. How would you like to try to fill those shoes?
That's how we grow.
