Norman Granz is one of the most important non-musicians in the history of jazz and no one has made a greater contribution to the staging, recording and filming of jazz concerts. This series of performances from the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival now makes a part of this legacy available on DVD for the first time.
Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis had a distinctive and instantly recognisable "Tough" style of playing the saxophone, which earned him his equally distinctive nickname. Long associated with Count Basie he also had a distinguished solo career. This performance from 1977 sees him teamed with a dream line up featuring Oscar Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on bass and Jimmie Smith on drums, who combine brilliantly to deliver an outstanding concert.
