Jivin' in Be-Bop (1946)
Jivin' in Be-Bop
Directed by Leonard Anderson and Spencer Williams
Cast: Dizzy Gillespie, Freddy Carter and Milt Jackson
Film / Black Cast / Music / Variety
A well-crafted hour full of solid entertainment. Singers, instrumentalists, dancers both male and female, even comedy. Add to that getting to see such performers as Milt Jackson, Ray Brown, Benny Carter and Gillespie himself, along with many more, in what amounts to a front-row seat for a very cool variety show, photographed intelligently and orchestrated to please.
