Overview

The Pablo label (and Norman Granz's return as a full-time producer) was launched with this wonderful package, first released as a three-LP set and now available as a three-CD reissue. The 1972 concert was originally supposed to only feature the Count Basie Orchestra and Ella Fitzgerald but Granz surprised everyone by inviting some "guests": trumpeters Roy Eldridge and Harry "Sweets" Edison, the tenors of Stan Getz and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, pianist Oscar Peterson and bassist Ray Brown. Together with Basie-trombonist Al Grey they formed the Jazz at the Philharmonic All-Stars and play wonderfully on three jams (listen to Elridge's break on "In a Mellow Tone") and a ballad medley. In addition there are four selections from Basie's band (featuring the tenor of Jimmy Forrest, trumpeter Pete Minger and altoist Curtis Peagler), a full set from Fitzgerald and a Peterson-Brown duet on "You Are My Sunshine." The highpoint of the concert however is the final song, a classic version of "C Jam Blues" which finds Fitzgerald trading off in very humorous fashion with Grey, Getz, Sweets, Lockjaw and Eldridge; each of the encounters has at least one remarkable moment. This gem is highly recommended.
