1000 SONGS - DAY 102: SONG # 132

Day 102: A Song I am not Surprised to Love

In the original "30 Days Song Challenge", song of day 12 shoul have been "A Song Nobody Would Expect You to Love". As it is a very hard task to find some song that fits in here AND at the same time is appreciated by the few readers of this blog, I dug a Be-Bop tune. Nobody can say in earnest, that this is not GREAT music, although some might not like it (because of preferring straight eights, for instance, or getting nervous when trying to listen to up-tempo jazz tunes or some other reasons). This here track is taken from the 1963 album "Something Old, Something New" by Dizzy Gillespie, an album on which Lalo Schifrin gets the credits for having arranged the music. The song is called Be-Bop; try to whistle or hum the lines of the trumpet and/or the saxophone...

Musicians are:

Dizzy Gillespie - trumpet
James Moody - flute, saxophones
Kenny Barron - piano
Chris White - double bass
Rudy Collins - drums
