"Gjon Mili was a film producer who created the movie Jammin' the blues in 1944 with Lester Young, Harry Edison, Jo Jones and several others. The 10 minute film won an Academie Award for a short movie. A few years later, in 1950 he assembled another group of great musicians together to film another few clips. These were all musicians who performed worldwide in Norman Granz' Jazz at the Philharmonic. Harry Sweets Edison on trumpet, Lester Young and Flip Phillips on tenors, Phil Harris on trombone with Hank Jones piano, Ray Brown bass and Buddy Rich on drums. Ella Fitzgerald comes in on a scat vocal as well "
