Dizzy Gillespie/Stan Getz: “I Can’t Get Started”

[Revision Note (Apr. 1, 2012): I have corrected date and personnel]

Here is another nice and short one from the series of “La Grande Parade du Jazz” concerts in Nice, filmed for french TV. Here you get Dizzy Gillespie, trumpet; Barney Wilen, Stan Getz, tenor sax; Andy Laverne, piano; Rodney Jones, guitar; Mike Richmond, acoustic double bass; Mickey Roker, Billy Hart, drums, percussion, playing I Cant’ Get Started at the Grand Parade du Jazz, Nice, July 14, 1978.

      How embarrassing! I have changed the personnel accordingly. But in fact Milt Hinton plays in another segment from this concert which I will maybe put up at another time. I mixed these up. And besides the guitarist there is also an unidentified percussionist.

    The date is wrong. On June 14, 1978 Mr Gillespie was playing with his regular quartet at the Parisian Room in Los Angeles.
