Saturday video break: How High The Moon

Didn’t get my act together in time to post a video last week – sorry about that. This Saturday we get a little jazzy with the great Charlie Parker:

If you’re a sax player, then Charlie Parker is one of your gods. Wish I could have seen him perform live. As with many jazz songs, there are instrumentals and there are vocals, and when you think of the latter, you think of The Manhattan Transfer:

I asked myself, what could be better than the MT singing this song, and the answer I got was having Ella Fiztgerald join them doing a bit of scat singing. The only problem is that it was over too quickly. A slightly longer Transfer-only version, with a nifty guitar solo where Ella did her thing, is here. Enjoy!
