In the 1930s, Count Basie formed his band, featuring players such as Jo Jones and Lester Young. They would soar to popularity, producing hit songs and appearing in Montreux Jazz Festival, Vol. 4, along with Milt Jackson and Ray Brown. Jackson has been called the greatest vibraphonist of his generation, and Brown, a former member of the Oscar Peterson Trio has made over 2000 recordings. In this film, they play from a selection that includes "The More I See You," "The Heat's On," "Mean to Me," "Freckle Face," and "Red Tape."
