Feelin Dizzy

Here’s a clip of the great trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie playing with Electric Mayhem, which has the distinction of being the only band populated solely by muppets. He has his trademark 45 degree trumpet, which was the result of a friend sitting on his instrument with pleasing acoustical results.

Here’s Dizzy with Louis Armstrong (who I’ve been listening to a lot recently- gotta love Louis!)

And why not check out a much older session with Diz & Charlie Parker…
