Thank you for the clip- one great one there.
The two tenor Elvin band was ridiculous. I remember a recording of Frank Foster & ??Big George on Jerome Kerns' Yesterdays that was an absolute stunner.SHINY STOCKINGS!!!!
Mr. Foster was not only a giant of the Basie Band and his own great records but played with Elvin Jones on some of the coolest stuff out there (when will blue note understand that Elvin had a lot of GREAT records in the 70's).
Anyway. SIP (swing in peace) Mr. Foster.
What a great title. Seems like there was a greater ease to life back then, and things less pretentious, but perhaps that is just because it is long past. Either way it is more great talent lost in outer space. Thank you Mr. Foster.... "2 Franks, Please" with Frank Foster and Frank Wess.
