This exciting record presents the in person performances of Tony Bennett, one of the world’s most distinctive singers, and Count Basie, one of the giants of jazz and swing. The performances heard here were recorded in Philadelphia during one of the big football weekends, and the restless excitement and enthusiasm of the crowd has clearly communicated itself to the performers, who send it back in no uncertain terms. The highly-charged Bennett singing has rarely been heard to better advantage, and is set off neatly by the celebrated drive of the Basie band. Here are two fine popular artists, fired by their audience, in a splendid documentary of a memorable performance.
