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.

Personnel:

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.
