One More Time... Frank Foster
A tweet from Nicholas Payton alerted me to this hilarious scene from a 1961 comedy. "Blues In Hoss' Flat" was composed by Frank Foster. The original version is available on Count Basie's Chairman of the Board album from 1959. Far less amusing is the story of Foster's publishing woes revealed in the trailer of a documentary about the jazz great. Foster died July 26.
