    Umbrella Man Armstrong / Gillespie 1959

    One of the most famous and enjoyable clips in the history of jazz!
    Louis Armstrong encounters Dizzy Gillespie for the first time in performance in the Fourth Timex TV show hosted by Jackie Gleason in 1959
    Louis had not much good to say about the beboppers and modernists but this time he certainly enjoyed playng with Dizzy in the tune Umbrella Man
