Music Millennium

Founded in 1977 by Lionel Hampton, the Who's Who in Jazz label existed as a means to present to the world the best musicians that the jazz world had to offer. With Lionel chairing the recording sessions (and also featuring on several of the sessions himself), these recordings have truly earned their title featuring jazz greats such as Buddy Rich, Charles Mingus, Terumasa Hino, Sonny Stitt, Teddy Wilson, Stéphane Grappelli and Dave Brubeck, amidst the many others. Recorded live At Midem, Cannes, France, January 22nd, 1978, Hampton, Oliver Jackson's Orchestra and George Wein (piano) come together to showcase an array of classic compositions including 'Basin Street Blues', 'Oliver Twist' and 'It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)'.
