1955 Stan Kenton

Comment Al Porcino:
Ah, this is interesting. This is at the famous Birdland Club in New York, 1955. We were there in Birdland for a week with Stan Kenton. It was in the fall, maybe September, October. And they were just having fun, Stan Kenton and Dizzy Gillespie. We were actually working there and maybe Dizzy came in and sat in with the band for a number or two. That’s me sitting down …… Amazing
