Just found this great clip from the Montreux Festival of 1975 that I wanted to share with you. Incredible swing, joy and energy and besides the music it's already great fun to see the facial expressions of the musicians enjoying themselves (captured very well) :).
Just saw a great clip of the not so often mentioned Jimmy Forrest. See here for a recording of him playing Body And Soul with Count Basie:
Check out what he does do at 4:47, I love it! And his almost collapsing high G at 5:03. Looks like he...
Tenor trades with Eric Dixon(?) -- check out Sal's articulation -- YOIKS!!
(This must be the Western New York edition of the Count Basie Big Band -- Buffalo's own Sam Noto -- A BEAST! -- is back there on trumpet...)
