Jazz Icons DVDs feature full-length concerts and in-studio performances by the greatest legends of jazz, filmed all over the world from the 1950s through the 1970s. Beautifully transferred from the original masters, each DVD features rare performances that have never been officially released on home video and, in many cases, were never broadcast.
Each DVD includes a booklet with liner notes, rare photos and a memorabilia collage. Produced with the full support and cooperation of the artists or their estates.
This DVD highlights an amazing one hour Art Farmer concert from 1964 featuring the great flugelhornist in his prime. Farmer's top-notch band includes legendary guitarist Jim Hall (fresh from Sonny Rollins' band), drummer Pete LaRoca and Steve Swallow on bass.
This legendary ensemble plays both standards and originals with ease and finesse and highlights why Farmer was considered one of the most innovative horn players in all of jazz. 60 minutes.
