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 for the first time. The much missed Roy Eldridge was one of the most exciting trumpeters to emerge during the swing era. This outstanding concert from 1977 sees him teamed with an all star group featuring the great Oscar Peterson on Piano, Niels Pedersen on bass and Bobby Durham on drums.
