So Long, Hank
I saw him only one time, in an all start tribute to Charlie Parker (Le Spectacle du ciecle!) at Place des Arts in Montreal, in probably 81 or 2. Dizzy was bandleader. Philly Joe Jones on drums, Ray Brown on bass, James Moody (the only extant member), Milt Jackson on vibes. Hank at the piano.
And it weren't just a blowing session, either. They played their butts off, and it were so grand.....
