Synopsis by Mark Deming

Veteran jazz saxophonist Flip Phillips, who was a star through the swing, jump blues, and bop eras and a favorite member of the Jazz at the Philharmonic ensemble, celebrated his 80th birthday in style with a three-day string of concerts featuring a "who's who" of jazz legends as his guests. The Flip Phillips' 80th Birthday Party collects two hours of highlights from the shows, with Phillips joined by Milt Hinton, Herb Ellis, Jack Sheldon, Dick Hyman, Bucky Pizzarelli, Peanuits Hucko, Scott Hamilton, and many more.
