The revenge of Mr. Taste!

Here's some GREAT footage of Ed Thigpen playing with an all-star pickup band for a TV series in 1958.
As I've mentioned before, the Oscar Peterson trio stuff with Mr. Thigpen, as great as it is, really doesn't show a lot of what he can do. The trio really doesn't represent what a fiery, swinging presence Ed Thigpen  was. This video along with the live big band recording with Oliver Nelson are a great place to check out this more aggressive side of "Mr. Taste". :)
