October 21

Being that today is the birthdate of Dizzy Gillespie and myself, I have decided to post my favorite jazz composition of all-time: Night In Tunisia.
Perhaps it is too soon to have another Dizzy post but you really can't go wrong with Dizzy. Taking a page from Taxi Driver, here are some of my favorite renditions of another classic jazz standard.

Sounds interesting to me. I think that jazz music is one of the best genres in terms of producing harmony and rythm. I like it mixed with spome classical music.
