That's an awesome clip... anyone else dig those dancers too. They were great. Of course, high-quality video of Prez and Illinois Jacquet playing... priceless.

And that bit at the beginning with the first drummer "handing off" to Papa Jo Jones...all those guys were having a blast. Great times!!!
Indeed priceless! The drummer at the start is Big Sid Catlett. Also nice to hear in the first chorus of his solo that Illinois was heavily influenced by the great Herschel Evans. And what about Sweets Edison? He played great during a very very long career in jazz.

Thanks for posting this Kelly :).
