Jammin' The Blues

Val Dunmore posted this YouTube clip on Facebook. It's the classic 1944 ten minute short Jammin' The Blues.
Lester Young, Harry Edison, Illinois Jacquet, Barney Kessel, Marie Bryant are just some of the participants.
The black and white camera work is absolutely awesome.
Don't miss this.
Lance.

Have just watched that Lester Young clip - sensational! Especially liked the vocals. The black-and-white filming is very atmospheric, especially with all the fags on the go! Guess jazz then was literally smokin'!

And they all look so relaxed, at least until the dancing starts. It must have been more than ordinary tobacco they were smoking. The singer even has a smokey voice. Great stuff!
