It Don't mean a Thing Fitzgerald Ella/Peterson 1958

Jazz at the Philharmonic in Holland. Of course, jazz musicians were always welcomed and when the top musicians with Norman Granz's JATP wanted to come to the Netherlands the famous Amsterdam concertgebouw was offered for their concerts.
This clip is from a 1958 concert. We see and hear the Oscar Peterson trio with Ray Brown on bass and Herb Ellis on guitar. They perform together with Ella Fitzgerald, with solos of violinist Stuff Smith and trumpetplayer Roy Eldridge.
Quality filming and very good sound recording by the Dutch engineers.
This clip was found in Dutch film archives and recently broadcasted on TV. A friend was able to get me a copy and it is such a pleasure to be able to share it with so many dailymotion viewers worldwide.
