Jivin' In BeBop


-- Synopsis:
     This rare musical feature has no script, no plot, very little dialogue and just a solid hour of incredible jazz / Bop music played by the music star Dizzy Gillespie and his orchestra plus a band of others. This is a good video to some some performers in their "early days."

* Features:
    Some interesting dancing in this video. From Jitterbug and Tap Dance to Exotic (Sahji Exotic Dance) and Expressionist. An interesting look at dance with Bop music. Some Bop music was fine for dance but most became un-danceable in some respects, (altho people tried) such as the song 'Salt Peanuts' in this clip. Bop music somewhat started the "Beatnik" revolution.
