(CHARLIE PARKER) LADY BE GOOD - 9 MINUTES OF LIVE JAMMIN'!
Subido por cdbpdx el 17/05/2009
Went to a garage sale today and picked up a 12 inch 78 rpm record with a label I've never seen before, called DISC NEW YORK. Song title was Lady Be Good by Gershwin - instrumental. Almost left it behind, just got it because it had an unusual label and only cost 50c, but when I played it there was some of the finest jazz I've ever heard! Took a close look at the small print on the label and it listed Lester Young, Willie Smith, Charlie Parker, Howard McGhee, Arnold Ross, Lee Young, and Billy Hadnot. This is part of Norman Granz' Jazz At The Philharmonic series recorded in 1946.
The song is in 2 parts, both sides of a 12 inch record and are in the video so you get the entire show. Almost 9 minutes of live jazz jammin' by some great jazzmen.
Thanks to the folks who shared information about this recording. Learn something new every day!
