Today’s concert is dedicated to this very special musical ensemble that was put together for a 1971 concert in Copenhagen.
They are: Thelonious Monk on piano, Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Sonny Stitt on sax, Kai Winding on the trombone, Al McKibbon on base, and Art Blakey on drums.
It is worth a listen on this July 4th. America’s cultural heritage is prolific, and the jazz genre and its great musicians and composers have been one of the greatest cultural gifts America has given the world.
Enjoy! And happy fourth of July!
Until next time.
