Blues Walk

Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Stitt

Filmed in 1958

There’s a mystery to this tune…

Sonny Stitt wrote it in 1952 and called it Loose Walk, but later the name was changed and it was attributed to Clifford Brown.

Stitt actually played in the Max Roach-Clifford Brown Quintet for a few weeks when it first formed.

In a 1964 performance, Dexter Gordon gives the original title and attributes to Stitt.
