Recorded at a time when Gillespie (1917-1993) was fronting his fabled post-war big band featuring jazz greats such as pianist John Lewis, vibraphonist Milt Jackson or bassist Ray Brown, this concert film catches the irrepressible trumpeter in top artistic form. More than fifty years have passed, but watching Gillespie and his men enthusiastically attack Bop classics such as "Salt Peanuts", "Shaw 'Nuff" or "Things to Come" still makes for wonderful viewing. Worth to mention appart is vocalist Helen Humes' participation. All clips have been selected from the 1947 long feature Jivin' In Be-Bop. Time: 50.13 PAL/NTSC
