Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Turn up the volume and take a lively trip back to the swing-jazz era as Ella Fitgerald, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and a whole host of jazz legends share the stage of New York's Philharmonic Hall for a once-in-a-lifetime performance captured live on October 23, 1972 and hosted by popular Tonight Show bandleader Doc Severinsen. In addition to offering the first and only television appearance by the original Benny Goodman Quartet, this concert also featured an unforgettable performance of "Blueberry Hill" by Buddy Hackett, rousing ensemble versions of "Struttin' with Some Barbecue" and "Mack the Knife", and a memorable performance of "Oh! Lady Be Good" by Fitzgerald and Basie.
