A Evening At Shelly's Manne Hole in ... 1970!


The following video was filmed at Shelly's in 1970 with Bob Cooper on tenor saxophone, Hampton Hawes on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and, of course, Shelly Manne on drums.

The audio and video quality are somewhat lacking by today's standards, but this is over 30 minutes of great Jazz by musicians in a setting, neither of which, exists anymore.

The three tunes are Ray's Blues in the Basement, Stella by Starlight and Milestones.

Music from a time gone by, but music that is timeless.
