The historical contributions of multi-talented jazz filmmaker Norman Granz are showcased as his cameras roll to capture the legendary Count Basie and company performing a rollicking live set at the 1977 Montreux Jazz Festival. Few bandleaders could bring out the best in their performers the way Count Basie did, and with this release music lovers can find out just what all the fuss was about with infectious performances of "Freckle Face", "Bag of Dreams", "Fantail", "Jumpin' at the Woodside", and seven other unforgettable hits.
