Dizzy Gillespie and Friends

Oop Bop Sh’ Bam

Scat singing blow out

Dizzy Gillespie’s Bebop Reunion on Sound Stage in Chicago in 1975.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many high octane scat singers on one stage working on the same tune at the same time.


Dizzy Gillespie, trumpet
Al Haig, piano
James Moody, tenor
Milt Jackson, vibes
Kenny Clarke, drums
Ray Brown, bass
Joseph Carroll, vocalist
Sarah Vaughan, vocalist

I may have the name of the tune wrong. If anyone knows better, let me know.
