Dizzy & Maurice: Black Orpheus (Manha de Carnival)

It killed me that this first clip of Diz and Maurice Andre playing Manhã de Carnaval from Black Orpheus is cut short, so I searched around for the full tune and was stoked to actually find it! It doesn’t track well, so best to just close your eyes and listen. If you want to see their fingers line up with the sounds, watch the 2nd vid below.

Tasty harmonies. Makes me want to try this as a duet with another trumpeter.

Below the first two vids is another clip from the same TV show, one of Dizzy’s compositions, Groovin’ High.

The full song (with bad visual/audio alignment)
