dizzy gillespie planking the piano, ca. 1947

It's Dizzy Gillespie month at the Creekside Grille so here is the bass part to "Two Bass Hit", the Ray Brown feature.  
I forget what Dave says about why these parts even exist.  It's a good part but does not correspond to this INCREDIBLE RECORDING, which comes from the invaluable YouTube posting of 78 rpm collector SwingMan1937:

Here again culled from the contributions of VDiscDaddy on Youtube is Dizzy's "Grand Central Getaway", performed by the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra on V-Disc 391 from 1945.
