Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Count Basie on Jazz 625 - does anyone have a recording?

Jazz 625 - that groundbreaking BBC jazz series produced some remarkable tv jazz in the 1960s. None more so than the broadcast by the Count Basie Orchestra in 1965 and re-broadcast as recently as 2008. One of our site visitors is keen to obtain a video of the same - can anyone help?

I have a 'Show of the Week' programme broadcast on BBC4 in 2008 which is from 1965. Could this be the one?
