Sonny Criss

I first learned of Sonny Criss from Ken Blanchard on this blog. Cat had amazing chops and a rough life with a painful ending. This one is for you Professor and Jazz Note SDP's audience too. There are more from this session too. Hunt them down on YouTube and check them all out. And dig Bobby Thompson's great work on the traps.

  1. Wow, what a video! I love these European jazz film clips, with their time-gone by scenes of well-dressed people drinking and smoking. And dig Hampton Hawes on piano! Thanks a bunch, Ken.

    Our minds seem to be oddly linked in the jazz ether-sphere. I was listening to Sonny Criss just today in my car. To actually see him play is very satisfying.
