Nice to see such a good quality clip of Arvell Shaw.

He was Hawaiian and was brought in to the band by Trummy Young who lived in Hawaii. Not the best all-star drummer but he could do it when he wanted.

alright alright, I guess I could give you that. Especially since you put it that way. And yes, its rather unfortunate that that is so. Just try and be less of a snob lol, I just hate when people over-dissect/analyze music. I play keys myself, but more jazz/soul/funk/gospel rather that straight ahead. So for me, its all in the soul. my bad on the bashing btw! lol

Eddie Shu replaced Joe Darensbourg in June of '64 and left the band in July of '65. He was replaced by Buster Bailey.

Racism only exists if you allow it. And to say that Botti is unskilled? Say that to Jill Scott, Billy Childs, Roy HARGROVE himself who have all worked with Botti and are all BLACK! But what do you care? You're just a jazz snob...a racist jazz snob. I'm gonna be all over you Mr. GOTIRES.

omg was he playing out the side of his mouth??

Listen, Botti is very skilled when he is playing MORE COMERCIAL music other than Jazz.Being a jazz pianist who has talked to various legends like Marsalis,Rooney,Sean Jones,and Barry Haris about this issue.They agree that lots of white critics over praise white musicians for their skill.Although They can't compete with the black counterparts.

This is from the Bell Telephone Hour which aired on 2/2/65. The trombonist is "Big Chief" Russell Moore who was soon to be replaced by Tyree Glenn. Billy Kyle on piano, Arvell Shaw on bass & Danny Barcelona on drums. Louis also played "Basin Street Blues" on this show.

there are few great white Jazz musicians but they understand that just as classical music came from a eroupean experience Jazz came from the black experience.

Louis: the roots of EVERYTHING. (Arvell Shaw, the bass player, is SUPERNATURAL. Find his performance, with Louis, of "How High the Moon," it will stun you.)

@abucunezzer101 The pianist is Billy Kyle who played with Louis from 1953 to 1965

Charlie Parker's Donna Lee is based on this.

Jazz was made by blacks but no one owns it .Although I will say that the jazz press gives unskilled poeple like chris botti face time and call poeple like wynton marsalis, and wallsace Rooney Neoclassicalist.They can both outplay chris botti and Dave Doaughlas put together.

Gil Evans asked Charlie Parker about "Donna Lee" when Gil was planning to arrange it for Claude Thornhill. Parker told Gil, according to Gil, that Miles Davis wrote it. It appears to be Miles's variation and improvement on "Tiny's Con," a little known quite similar head on "Indiana" -- but not similar enough to call plagiarism. There are lots of disputed compositions around Miles Davis. Some he apparently didn't write ("Solar"), some he did ("Nardis" -- Bill Evans verifies it on YouTube).

If I'm not mistaken I believe that's "Big Chief" Russel Moore who played with Louie and the ALl Stars in 64-65..he died in 1983

@2300skiddo Miles wrote it but Parker's band played it first so he is often credited. Miles did that a lot, he wrote Nardis also, even though Bil Evans was first to play it and is often most associated with that song.

Jazz was originally created by black musicians but based on the European system and tradition. True black music may be found in Africa.

The guy's comment was wrong but I believe there is still racism in jazz.Also how come there can be 80 white classical symphony musicians and no single black ones.Yet they accuse poeple like marsalis,John lewis of reverse racism?

Wow! I never heard that story about pops funeral before. What her reason for doing this. No musicans, no jazz, no blues, sounds like shit. No musinans, then who the hell was invited, to the funeral. Please get back to me about this. Thank You

This is what "Donna Lee" was written over. It is a common misunderstanding that Charlie Parker wrote it, but it was actually written by Miles Davis.

No ...on bass Arvell Shaw who played with Satch for many years.

Bigdjindustriez....what in hell is wrong with you? Colour didn't matter to Louis Armstrong. But you seem to have a problem there.

Playing in the band with Louie Armstrong live must have been the best thing a musician could ask for. Nothing else. "Hey man, you want this new horn? Just swing by and pick it up later!" "Nah. Sorry, man. I got a gig with ol' Satchmo down at the Savoy!"
