Duke sure gave him alot of choruses! I liked the video- nice closeups- but I wish I could have gotten it a bit louder.

I think Duke always gave him a crap load of choruses after that famous performance at Newport in '56. On the Newport performance, he took 27 choruses. This video has him taking 35+. I don't think they even make it to the Crescendo in Blue part.

That's a great clip. Duke, Harry Carney and the audience are LOVIN' it. Inspiring.

Fantastic!! You really do kind of get the feeling that he could have kept going for maybe, erm, another 20 minutes!! I thought it was a bit of a shame the youtube clip cut the ending because I would have liked to know how he rounded that off. Absolutely beautiful. And (at the risk of stating the obvious), WHAT a band. Thank you.
