    This is a wonderful movie. Sure it's a documentry but if you love Jazz (or as they call it Swing) you'll love this movie. It shows you all the major points in BG's life and gives you interviews with Harry Goodman, Helen Ward and Lionel Hampton which alone is worth buying the video alone but you also get to see other names such as Harry James, Gene Krupa and many many more. Since there passing away they were not interviewed on this video but you get to see exactly what they looked like and how they played (for me I always wondered). I watch the movie three times the first day I got it and I found new things everytime and I still watch it time to time, one things for sure no matter how many times you go back you will always find more in the video.
