OK, so we are not normally a “cultural” channel here at Beet.TV (but we have culture!), but wanted to share this gem we just found on Google Video.  It’s a very rare performance by John Coltrane and Stan Getz in Germany in 1960.  It might be the only performance filmed or recorded of the great tenor sax players performing together. The camera work is very cool and the sound quality is pretty good.

You can actually save this file to your iPod, PC or Playstation by clicking on the Google logo on video player and follow the pop-up that reads “Go to Google Video.” There you can find the clip and use one of the download or share functions.  You can also find the clip directly here.
