Dizzy with Sonny Stitt question

1 post in this topic

Hi !

I don´t know if this fits in here in the "discography corner" , but let´s try:

I remember in the late 70´s (summer 1978) , on Austrian TV (ORF 2) we had a television series about the story of jazz and when it came about "bop" and "cool" there was a video with Dizzy telling about the essence of be bop and then he said something like "let´s show you how it sounds" and then he played a very fast version of "Wee" together with Sonny Stitt, I don´t remember the others, but I noticed he had a Fender bass Player, not an acoustic bass. I think Sonny Stitt had the first solo. 

Does someone know when this short Video was done and if it still exists?  As I said it´s Diz with Sonny Stitt, and an electric bass player. It must have been around the mid/late 70´s. 

Anyway, this was a great television film. Dexter and Mingus spoke, Lee Konitz spoke and played, Stan Getz the same, and there was a Video clip of Stan Kenton with a Young bearded Drummer who maybe was Peter Erskine...…..
