We love all the music, but as you've probably noticed we're partial to the hard bop Blue Note classics from the 1950s to 1970s. One of the gems from the archive.

Note: You don't need glasses...not all of our videos are crystal clear and this one isn't, but the music was too compelling not to share.

Mt. Fuji Jazz Festival in 1986

Personnel:

Milt Jackson, vibes
Ceder Walton, piano
Buster Williams, bass
Billy Higgins, drums

Jackson wrote this one and it's become a jazz standard. Bag's is a nickname he picked up in Detroit.

Dizzy Gillespie discovered him in 1946 and also kept him for larger ensembles and right out the gate he had gigs with Woody Herman, Howard McGhee, Thelonious Monk, and Charlie Parker.

He became best known for his work with the "Modern Jazz Quartet."
