Video I Created Featuring Footage Of Jazz Legends

Here is the description from myspace -

A jazz inspired song that I created while immersing myself in Thelonious Monk several years ago. It’s certainly not on the same level as monk’s work, but I am satisfied with the end result none the less. This video features clips from some of the greatest jazz musicians of all time including Louis Prima & Keely Smith, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Cab Calloway. Enjoy!

Really great footage of these artists for those of you familiar with them. Footage goes nice with the music. A blend of old and new.

Cheers and comments welcome


i really like this man, good job. i’m at the part with trane and miles jamming out right now…the melody you put in there is perfect, i can actually hear miles davis in the music playing in sync with the vid. it kind of has that philip glass/godfrey reggio koyannisqatsi feel to it, an excellent example of how a soundtrack can evoke certain emotions the video would not on it’s own.

and monk is THE man.
