Norman Granz is one of the most important non-musicians in the history of jazz and no one has made a greater contribution to the staging, recording and filming of jazz concerts. This series of performances from the prestigious Montreux Jazz FestivalTM now makes a part of this legacy available on dvd for the first time. Ray Bryant brought to modern jazz not only the deep roots of the blues but also the sounds and passion of gospel. This 1977 solo concert captures him at his very best and features classics such as Take The "A" Train, Django and St Louis Blues.
