Anthony Jackson with Dizzy Gillespie, Phil Woods and More: Wamba (1990)

Legendary saxophonist Phil Woods passed away on September 29th, 2015, prompting Rick Suchow to go through his vast video library and share this gem, which was recorded in 1990.

Anthony Jackson “shows his Latin Jazz side on the tune ‘Wamba’ (written by Salif Keita),” Rick shared.

What an all-star cast on this video too: Dizzy Gillespie (trumpet and percussion), Woods (alto sax), Bob Berg (tenor sax), John Scofield (guitar), Tito Puente (percussion), Airto (percussion), Marvin “Smitty” Smith (drums) and Flora Purim (vocal).

RIP, Mr. Woods.
