#TrackOfTheDay: “Hot House” Dizzy Gillespie with Charlie Parker (USA, 1951)

So I used to do this over on my Twitter account. Screw it. Let’s do it here instead.

The rules are: pretty much no rules. I try not to repeat an artist for a solid year. Because there’s plenty in the world to choose from.

It looks like “Hot House” first came out in 1947, but I’m seeing conflicting info about that. Regardless, here’s Dizzy with Charlie Parker performing a version live on TV in 1951.
