The sublime evening with Ella Fitzgerald, at the height of her powers in 1979, and the Count Basie Orchestra, performing versions of Ella's classics.

Norman Granz is one of the most important non-musicians in the history of jazz, and no one has made a greater contribution to the staging, recording and filming of jazz concerts. This series of performances from the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival makes a part of this legacy available now, after digital video & sound remastering, like never before.

This concert is the perfect example of how to 'swing.' The ideal combination of Ella Fitzgerald, at the height of her powers in 1979, with the Count Basie Orchestra and accompanied by the great man himself, leads to a sublime evening with versions of Ella's classics. Ella's performance on this concert won her the 1980 GRAMMY award for best jazz vocal.
