Man, the good ol’ days, when music actually was music…
Quality stuff, but I have one question: Anyone know what that instrument was Dizzy was playing? Never seen a horn like that before…
the 19 people tat thumbed dwon this just want some attention or feel special in a certain group…… RETARDS!
19 people with thumbs down??? ENVIOUS are we.
@D7Z Does that really matter? What matter’s is, that man could play. He created great music, in fact, people like Dizzy and Coltrane, (Just to name 2) were almost the definition of Jazz.
this was awesome, Diz was known 4his clowning around & that fit in great with a show like the muppets, but the biggest mistake that most folks make is that even though this show had kid appeal, it wasn’t a childrens show. about 2 yrs after this aired a few of us band buds caught his performance @ chgo’s South shore Country Clup Park that 2 was awesome
ewwww. he was like an elephant with those phat cheecks
@fishkiller A while ago I think Arthur had Joshua Redman and Yo-Yo Ma on it for an episode
What a waste, He should have been on a much better level of programming.
Loved the Muppet Show back in the day. They had all kinds of great talent on it was like a kids SNL
i wish guys like him get paid well. there’s nothing wrong working on a kid’s show, i hope it wasn’t because times were tough for this great guy
@Weizeil1121 hes a nice man…….cute huh lol
@deatho10o whats it look like???? LOL
what is the name of this song? i searched for St. Louis Blues doesnt seem like the same song
@fishkiller haha or beiber, what happended
@BlueCollarTweeker this trumpet has a darker tone than a regular one
@saxophoneninja yup an armstrong don press down with his finger tips neither. shame Dizzies so fuckin awesome an all i can think is: SIZE of that guys face!
I wonder how many grapes he can fit in his mouth…
and teachers say “don’t puff your cheeks”…
@BlueCollarTweeker Yes, actually – the 45 degree bend in the horn gives it a darker sound than other trumpets. Dizzy liked the sound so much that he made the bent trumpet (which came into being due to complete accident, by the way) that he made it his trademark.
