A secret admirer sends this one this morning. Yup, just the best…

Dizzy Gillespie and Louis Armstrong. Interesting that during the trading of solos the camera shot is of the one who is not playing. Gives you a chance to see the thought process a little bit. The mutual appreciation is so apparent here – two trumpeters with completely different styles, one clearly indebted to the other, one clearly inspired by the other. Beautiful clip.
