Videotaped on October 23, 1972 at Philharmonic Hall, Lincoln Center in New York City. The broadcast also included an edited version of the Dave Brubeck Quartet with Paul Desmond playing "Take Five," and Joe Williams singing with Count Basie, but they are omitted from this DVD.
Tracks 11 to 16 were performed as a tribute to Louis Armstrong, who had passed away the previous year. Tracks 14, 15 and 17 are credited to Ensemble, but I viewed the DVD to list the prominent musicians in those tracks.
This was also one of the last reunions of the Benny Goodman Quartet with Teddy Wilson, Lionel Hampton and Gene Krupa.
Full personnel are not listed anywhere on the package or in the broadcast credits. Some artists were identified visually.
Track numbering on the package does not match the programming on the DVD, which adds a collage of performance excerpts and stills with an unidentified voiceover.
Audio options include stereo and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound.

I remember seeing this program air on television and made a cassette of most of it. Unfortunately, at least two segments were omitted: Joe Williams singing with Count Basie and His Orchestra and the Dave Brubeck Quartet with Paul Desmond, Jack Six and Alan Dawson. The lack of credits for the participating musicians is very frustrating, especially some of the soloist during the Louis Armstrong tribute. The video is rather blurry as the camera moves, which may be in part to deteriorated source materials.The music that is present is good, though it feels like some performances were edited prior to the initial broadcast.
