An hour with Dizzy Gillespie

Well 50 minutes or so. This is from the early days (1940s I'd guess) with his big band, plus vocalists and dancers. Very interesting as a period document, and superb entertainment. There's a dance duo (male and female) for "A Night in Tunisia" that has the Orientalist exoticism turned up to 11! Some credit information.
