The Jazz Dispute

A heated debate between Charlie Parker’s alto and Dizzy Gillespie’s horn. The recording is “Leap Frog”, from Bird And Diz.

other than the technical glitch that Bird was the most gentle, jovial and understanding of men and was never known to express any such impatience or anger at anyone, this is nonetheless a brilliant illustration for all those who think they don’t understand bebop,

’cause THIS is what it’s all about.
