Slim Gaillard And Arthur Prysock – Live At Birdland – 1952 – Past Daily Downbeat
Live Jazz from the 1950’s this weekend with a double bill, live from Birdland in New York City on September 9,1952. Starting off the set is the ultra-smoothe and mellow Arthur Prysock, who does several tasteful turns with some standards. Next up is the inimitable, incomparable (their words, but mine too) Slim Gaillard and his trio who rip things up nicely for this NBC radio program Stars In Jazz.
And if you ever wondered how the word Wowtee got its start, here’s the man responsible.
