Philly Joe Jones Interview

There are a couple of new videos up on Youtube that I discovered last week that lead me to an amazing resource: The Howard University Jazz Oral History Project. Some great stuff there.

A couple days ago I posted the Max Roach interview. The next video I want to share is a one hour interview with Philly Joe Jones. It’s full of great stuff and like Max, he also plays some piano during the interview.

The video abruptly flips over to a Sphere concert with Charlie Rouse, Kenny Barron, Buster Williams and Ben Riley around the one hour six minute mark, cutting off the interview. There are audio clips of the interview here, which seem to extend beyond the length of the video, though I haven’t listened in full yet.
