Dizzy Gillespie/Stan Getz: “A Night In Tunisia”

dizgetz(snapshot from videoclip)

Almost a year ago I discovered some nice footage of Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz in 1978 playing “I Can’t Get Started”. coming from the series “La Grande Parade du Jazz” concerts in Nice, filmed for french TV. I thought I could put up the rest of the footage as well. So here you have 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 at the Grand Parade du Jazz, Nice, July 14, 1978. playing “Night In Tunisia” – which is soon interrupted by heavy rain.

On the second segment (Improvisation/Ceciliana) Dizzy is accompanied by Hank Jones, Milt Hinton, J.C. Heard.

  1. A perfect image of Dizzy Gillespie – or at least the image I’d love to remember him with.

    Much appreciated!

  2. so many exceptional moments in this short video: dizzies jaw harp solo improv might be the biggest surprise, but the whole video is a gem.

    thanks for all the wonderful videos!
