This Blu-ray disc compiles some of the finest classic jazz performances ever filmed. The Sound of Jazz was a 1957 CBS TV show which reunited some of the genre’s greatest stars for a one-hour performance that was presented as performed, with no editing. It was a true live-TV experience which produced some of the most moving jazz scenes ever filmed, among them the final meeting of Billie Holiday and Lester Young. The show also produced a studio album by the same title, which is added in its entirety as a bonus on this package. CBS would repeat its success in 1959 with yet another show, this time featuring Miles Davis, Ahmad Jamal and Ben Webster on different sets. Davis is heard both in a quintet format (with John Coltrane on tenor sax) and with the Gil Evans orchestra. Also included here are Gjon Mili’s classic 1944 short film Jammin’ The Blues, one of the very rare movies showcasing Lester Young, and the only existing footage of Charlie Parker on live TV.
