Jazz at the Philharmonic
Quite an all-star jam session
Producer Norman Granz loved jam sessions and in his Jazz At The Philharmonic shows during 1944-60, he presented the greatest of the swing and bop soloists together onstage in the US and Europe.
In 1967, Granz had a brief revival of JATP including this concert which was presented on television by the BBC from England.
This extensive show has performances of “Ow,” “Stardust,” “Yesterdays,” “You Go To My Head,” “Tin Tin Deo,” “Woman You Must Be Crazy,” “The Champ,” “Shiny Stockings,” “Undecided,” “I’ve Got the World On A String,” “Blue Lou,” “I Can’t Get Started,” “Body And Soul,” a Louie Bellson drum solo, and “The Real BBC Blues.”
The performances live up to one’s expectations and it is not an understatement to call this classic music.
