Synopsis:
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. Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie orchestra. This concert is the perfect example of how to "swing". The ideal combination of Ella Fitzgerald, at the height of her powers in 1979, with the Count Basie Orchestra and then accompanied by the great man himself, leads to a sublime evening with versions of such Ella classics as 'Flying Home' and 'A-Tisket, A-Tasket'.
