Dizzy Gillespie/Arturo Sandoval: A Night in Tunisia

Oh yeah!

See if you can dig the version from the Charlie Parker album One Night In Birdland. Charlie sits out while Fats Navarro and Bud Powell cut loose on trumpet and piano, with a rhythm section of Curley Russell and Art Blakey.

Fats Navarro had one to the great names in jazz -- right out of a James Ellroy novel, except Fats came first.

K: I love the Ellroy remark. I have pictures in my head now.

I'll check out Parker's version.
