The Kid Should See This

Dizzy Gillespie plays Tour de Force and Manteca on Italian TV (1960)

A short clip of three songs performed on Italian television in 1960: Tour de Force and Manteca by Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Leo Wright on alto sax, Junior Mance on piano, Art Davis on bass and Teddy Stewart on drums.

The video, unfortunately, has a few overlaps and edits with other clips, but they’re not too disruptive. His famous cheeks make their first appearance just after the 14-second mark.

Updated video.
