This is a video of Dizzy Gillespie (tp) Charlie Parker (as) Dick Hyman (p) Sandy Block (b) and Charlie Smith (d) playing "Hot House" on February 25, 1952 on TV.  Earl Wilson and Leonard Feather hand out Downbeat Magazine awards.  Note the glare on Parker's face when Wilson says that Dizzy is the greatest trumpet player of all time.
