Pete Fountain: Birth Of The Blues (George Klein's Talent Party 1964)

George Klein's Talent Party 1964

This is the earliest known video footage of George Klein, host of the WHBQ-TV Memphis show "Talent Party". This clip is an excerpt from an interview George did with famous jazz clarinet player Pete Fountain. Plus, you get to hear Pete "lip sync" (clarinet sync?) eight bars of the song, Birth Of The Blues he'd recently recorded.

NOTE: Memphis Memories would like to thank Harvey and Chet for finding this rare classic on a VHS tape at a flea market and making it available so it can be shared with everyone.
