Fidgety Feet - Dutch Swing College 1977

In a TV program from the Netherlands in 1977 called "Music Gallery" Peter Schilperoort's Dutch Swing College Band is performing the early jazz standard Fidgety Feet. This band is so well known and is considered one of the best in Europe, if not the best.
For people who have seen films of this band might be unfamiliar with the trumpet player. Ray Kaart is the brother of Dick Kaart, the trombonist.
I believe Ray always wanted te become the trumpet man of this band, but Peter found him not disciplined enough. For several periods Ray was in the band , however Ray was a bit of an individual, he would play bebop notes in an ensemble, etc. I personally find him a man with very interesting ideas.
