Extraordinary talents – Louis Armstrong, Chuck Berry, Mahalia Jackson, Thelonious Monk, Anita O’Day, Dinah Washington – bejewel this documentary that was named to the National Film Registry in 1999. Many consider it the finest music film of all time.  Restored with support from the National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress.

“Considered the greatest jazz performance documentary ever.”
