And then she stopped by Dizzy Gillespie

Featuring James Moody on alto saxophone and flute, Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, Rudy Collins on drums. 30 November, 1965. Recorded for the BBC’s “Jazz 625” TV show, introduced by Humphrey Lyttelton.

This is the show where Dizzy famously introduced the musicians in the band … to each other, then, turning to the audience, said, “Now that we’ve met …”.

Could that be a quotation from Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7? Unlikely I suppose. Still, you never know.
