Song Of The Day – 9/20/11

Song Of The Day – “Anthropology” by Dizzy Gillespie

Recorded February 22, 1946, this be-bop classic written by Diz and Charlie Parker features Gillespie on trumpet, Milt Jackson on vibes, Al Haig on piano, Ray Brown on bass, Bill DeArango on guitar and J.C. Heard on drums. Saxophonist, Don Byas, was a member of the band but not on this track. This music still sounds so alive and cutting edge 65 years after its inception.
