"Louis Armstrong, Mahalia Jackson and more shine bright"- The Guardian
The 1959 classic is considered one of the most extraordinary and possibly the first concert film ever made. Its sparkling new 4K restoration by IndieCollect, with colour correction by Oskar Miarka, recently premiered at the 57th New York Film Festival with sold out shows.
"As generous a dish of top jazz music as any cat could take in one gulp." New York Times

"Now reissued in a restored version, it’s not only a great jazz show, but also a marvellous gallery of 1950s hipsters sitting in the audience"- The Times ★★★★
