Louis Bellson’s 1940s Gretsch Kit in ‘A Song is Born’ Movie

SKF NOTE: There’s quite a cast of jazz greats in this A Song is Born 1948 movie clip including a very young Louis Bellson on his original mid-1940s Gretsch double-bass drum set. Some wonderful footage of Louis. Watch for his drum solo and his using his right hand under his left hand while playing his hi-hat. Very cool. Thank you to the amarallmusic YouTube channel for posting this.
