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.

Cannonball Adderley was one of the most highly respected alto saxophonists in the history of jazz, who could play anything in superb fashion. His sextet is captured at the top of their game on this DVD of two beautifully filmed concerts. Cannonball Adderley, Nat Adderley (cornet) and Yusef Lateef (tenor sax, flute, oboe), provide a massive three-horn frontline attack, while the stellar rhythm section of Joe Zawinul (piano), Sam Jones (bass) and Louis Hayes (drums) fuel the songs with a deep infectious swing. Quincy Jones' “Jessica's Day” leaps from the gate with a huge big band sound. 99 minutes.

Songs performed from the 1963 Switzerland concert include: Jessica's Day • Angel Eyes • Jive Samba • Bohemia After Dark • Dizzy's Business • Trouble in Mind • Work Song • Unit 7.

Songs performed from the 1963 Germany concert include: Jessica's Day • Brother John • Jive Samba.
