"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“An exquisite historical document.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.”
