Milt Jackson & Ray Brown: “Slippery”, Live at Montreux 1977

Here’s another great video of Ray Brown doing what he does best. This clip is taken from his performance at the 1977 Montreux Jazz Festival with Milt Jackson. With the help of a star-studded band, the duo tackles “Slippery,” which is also found on Brown’s album Something for Lester.

The rest of the band includes Clark Terry on trumpet, Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor saxophone, Monty Alexander on piano, and Jimmy Smith on drums.
