S'posin' Dickenson Vic 1978

Vic (Victor) Dickenson (August 6, 1906 - November 16, 1984) was an African-American jazz trombonist. Dickenson's career started out in the 1920s and led him through musical partnerships with such legends as Count Basie and Sidney Bechet. Also a soloist of wide acclaim, Vic Dickenson was known for the distinctive sound he coaxed out of the trombone.
In these clips Vic was the featured guest in one of Peter Appleyard's TV jazz shows recorded in Toronto in 1978 or 79.
Peter selected some fine musicians as a back-up group. In this tune is a beautiful solo and great musical response work by trumpet player Guido Basso
