What Doug Ramsey didn't tell us in his video post, what that Daily Motion user Alternativa is a veritable treasure trove of great videos.

I've just watched the Jazz Messengers in 1961 on a soft tune that features a Rubik's Cube Wayne Shorter solo and a Charles Mingus "Take The A Train" from his 1964 European tour (with Ted Curson) that's great all around, not least for Dolphy's partially a capella bass clarinet solo. And there are many promising others.
