Subscribe to Jazz on the Tube
Recorded in 1958
Dizzy Gillespie and Sonnt Stitt had been playing together for more than ten years when this remarkable session was recorded.
Dizzy brought Stitt onboard to replace Charlie Parker.
Written in 1930 by Jimmy McHugh with lyrics by Dorothy Field "On the Sunny Side of the Street" is one of those Broadway tunes that might have disappeared into oblivion had it not been discovered by jazzmen.
I mean who ever heard of Lew Leslie's International Revue, starring Harry Richman and Gertrude Lawrence?
