Bebop For Everyone!

Four of my favorite versions of Donna Lee. (The Jaco one is assumed here...)

Of course the classic: Charlie Parker, Miles, Bud Powell-pno , Tommy Potter- bs, Max Roach- drms.




The incredible Clifford Brown: w/ Sam Dockery-p, Ace Tisone- bs, Ellis Tollin- drm




The oddball: Claude Thornhill’s unique dance band version arranged by a young Gil Evans.




The sublime and totally unexpected: Joe Lavano treats it as a broken time ballad. Lovely and left field. Joe Lovano ts, James Weidman- p, Esperanza Spalding bs, Otis Brown III, Fransico Mela drm.
