Three Minutes of Great Jazz

I found this via News From ME the invaluable blog of Mark Evanier.

Jazz guys, I've read, hated to see Raymond Scott's music referred to as "Jazz," because Scott didn't allow improvisation. You played his music as he wrote it, and damned well liked it. If you didn't like the music, however, I have a hard time respecting your views on Jazz.

Raymond Scott and the Raymond Scott Quintet (That's six guys all together) playing Powerhouse. That's Mr. Scott on the piano.
