Norman Granz is one of the most important non-musicians in 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.
Tommy Flanagan is renowned for his flawless and stylish playing, which made him the accompanist of choice for many, most especially Ella Fitzgerald.

It is immediately clear with Tommy Flanagan was called the "Poet of the Piano".
