Jazz Icons is a DVD series featuring full-length concerts and studio
performances by the greatest legends of jazz, filmed all over the world from
the 1950s through the 1970s. None of these concerts has ever been officially
released on home video, and in many cases, the material was never broadcast.

The series consists of nine titles:

€ Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers € Live in '58
€ Dizzy Gillespie € Live in '58 & '70
€ Chet Baker € Live in '64 & '79
€ Thelonious Monk € Live in '66
€ Ella Fitzgerald € Live in '57 & '63
€ Count Basie € Live in '62
€ Quincy Jones € Live in '60
€ Buddy Rich € Live in '78
€ Louis Armstrong € Live in '59

Each DVD features a 16-page booklet with an essay written by an
authoritative jazz historian as well as rare and unseen photos. Jazz Icons
DVDs are produced with the full support and cooperation of the artists or
their estates, who, in most cases, are contributing rare personal
photographs, memorabilia, and forewords.
