Adolphous "Doc" Cheatham was a legendary trumpet player who lived to be eleven days short of his ninety-second birthday, in 1997. However, in this special live performance he was still "young" at 80 yrs. The year is 1985, and here he is paired, ironically with then 70 year old tenor saxophonist George Kelly, as well as then 18 year old alto saxophonist/clarinetist Joey Cavaseno, who was by then working with Illinois Jacquet. Backed by the great, sensitive pianist Richard Wyands, Ellington alumni bassist Victor Gaskin, and swinging veteran Ronnie Cole on drums, this group burns the house down from top to bottom, leaving the listener with that happy Harlem feeling that warms the soul and makes you stomp your feet.
