Wow Mary, I never took you as a Max fan. I know you're listening
to the right stuff!
YouTube also has the entire concert posted where this solo was taken from and the band's first tune was just stupid fast. Max even introduced it that back when he played with Parker and Gillespie, among others, they would always play the fastest song first. And you think Will Kennedy with the Yellowjackets are on speed? Max's band was absolutely flying for the first number of the night! And there's Mr. Roach, looking proper in that suit, not even breaking a sweat! Incredible ;)
