Edwin Hubbard, a favorite around Memphis in the 70s, 80s & 90s, was best known for his talents with a flute (from which always dangled his signature feathers), but here he wails away on sax while performing Dizzy Gillespie's "Night in Tunisia". For this performance at the Overton Park Shell he's accompanied by some of Memphis' finest: Tom Lonardo on drums, Errol Thomas on bass and Marvell Thomas on keyboards. The historic amphitheater was built by the WPA in 1936. It was fully renovated in 2008 thanks to a generous grant from the Mortimer Levitt Foundation and the renamed Levitt Shell now sponsors 50 free concerts every year devoted to developing community through the performing arts.
