'In its entirety, the two sets that made up the memorable and unrepeatable evening in 1953 when a Toronto, Canada, jazz society invited what they considered the five greatest jazzmen of the day to appear together. Aside from the single fact that the trio selections were performed first, this is exactly what took place in concert at Massey Hall.'
