Trailer

"Gorgeous. Probably the best feature-length jazz concert movie ever made."

“Filmed with a rare artistry, a rare attention to making images of music that are themselves musical.”

“An exquisite historical document. The film is where the American concert documentary genre begins.”

“There is not a moment that, freeze framed, would not be an absolutely stunning still picture.”
