Count Basie swingin' the blues by Count Basie( Visual )
7 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A leading musician of the swing era and an outstanding representative of the big band style, Count Basie was an eminent bandleader and jazz pianist. He led one of the most enduring swing bands of all time; no other musician was ever more committed to stomping, shouting, swinging, jumping and dragging away the blues than Count Basie. In Swingin' the blues, a distinguished group of Basie alumni, including early band stars Harry "Sweets" Edison, Earle Warren and Claude Williams, and later stars like Illinois Jacquet, Buddy Tate and Joe Williams lend their insights. The film is generously supported by vintage performance footage beginning in the 1930's and master recordings of the greatest Basie sessions"--Container

Lady Day : [the many faces of Billie Holiday] by Billie Holiday( Visual )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"This sparkling documentary let us see and hear the miracle that was Billie Holiday. Featured are rare TV and movie clips, along with commentary by a stellar group of jazz instrumentalists and singers who knew her well. Among those recalling Lady Day are the vocalists Carmen McRae and Annie Ross (who were inspired by her), fellow Count Basie alumni Buck Clayton and Harry "Sweets" Edison, and Billie's last accompanist, pianist Mal Waldron. Award-winning actress Ruby Dee reads from Holiday's autobiography Lady Sings The Blues. This film program puts Billie Holiday's often anguished life into perspective: as this program proves, she was a victim and a fighter. Above all, she was a genius of a jazz singer, as can be seen in performance clips of such Holiday standards as Strange Fruit, What A Little Moonlight Can Do, Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone, Fine And Mellow and others. Discover the many faces of this irresistible woman, this "dark lady of the sonnets" ; experience the power of her transcendent art."--Conteneur
