"The release of Jazz Icons™ is like the unearthing of a musical time capsule - an audio-visual treasure trove of the music that changed the world. From an educational standpoint this series is a gift to our culture." Quincy Jones
  • A major event is taking place in the world of Jazz - the release of the Jazz Icons™ DVD Series featuring filmed concerts by the most pivotal and influential jazz artists of the 20th century.

  • Dizzy Gillespie is represented by two historic concerts: the first from 1958 in Belgium with a quintet including saxophonist Sonny Stitt, and the second from 1970 in Denmark fronting the legendary Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band.

  • Each of the nine Jazz Icons™ DVDs features one or more concerts filmed live in television studios and concert halls throughout Europe during one of the most creative periods in jazz history. None of these performances has ever been officially released, and in many cases, the material was never originally broadcast. In addition, every performance in the Jazz Icons™ DVD series has been re-transferred and re-mastered from the best-quality, original masters yielding excellent sound and video.

  • Each DVD also includes a 16-page booklet with an extensive essay written by an established jazz writer and historian (Ira Gitler, Michael Cuscuna, Will Friedwald, Rob Bowman and others) In addition, each booklet includes previously unseen photos and memorabilia.
