You know the day destroys the night
Night divides the day
Tried to run
Tried to hide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side, yeah

ohh no , wrong song... XD

I heard this song for the first time in 1964. I was 8 yrs old and I never forgot this song. It was my start to loving jazz and playing jazz. I've been a jazz man every since. To think it all started with Jive Samba. Unreal all these years later.

Charles Blanchard

wish the club scene was still like this, where the musicians worked at their art and actually elevated the audience


@Cam Morgan spiritual rather than commercial


@Cam Morgan Jazz to nourish the soul as opposed to background noise

Cam Morgan

curious what you mean by 'elevating' the audience?

Caroline Corman

Charles Blanchard I've been thinking the same thing lately. I saw so many jazz acts back the, including Count Basie. (Mr. Kelly's) Chicago. London House. Miss those days.

Marcus Torigian

This is THE essence of music at its finest.
The conversations that are going on between these great musicians is without peer in its intricacy, and yet so accessible in its simplicity at the same time.
There is NOTHING better than this.
There might be equals, but nothing better.

Ricardo Flot

Cannonball was a ♍, very family oriented and ALWAYS made his audience feel as though he knew them! A well dressed 🐈 who spoke a venacular that everyday people could relate to, he had the ability to reach RIGHT into them and let them KNOW his life wasn't very much different from theirs, he had the SAME issues they do, he wasn't ego driven, nor 🌟 struck at ALL, a "real life" gentleman of his time!☝️😳

Tommaso Starace Music

My all time favourite saxophonist!
His tone is so expressive, full and rich at the bottom of the register and at the top ( something not easy on alto sax!). Amazing sense of time, swing and an infinite musical box of original ideas. Long live Cannonball!!

Jive Samba

And here we have, ladies and gentlemen, the greatest piece of music ever recorded.
