Not ‘classical music’? This reviewer disagrees! Long-lost, and meticulously restored, this presents a snapshot of the very best in fifties jazz like no other. Filmed for US tv, this is a veritable Who’s Who: Basie; Monk; Miles (on fire with Gil Evans); Lady Day heartbreaking in what was to be her last meeting with Lester Young. As a bonus, there’s even Charlie Parker’s only live filmed performance.
