The best-remembered episode of the shortlived CBS public-affairs series Seven Lively Arts, this program offers a copacetic combination of jazz forms, including traditional, modern, progressive, and blues. Among those appearing are solo guitarist Big Bill Broonzy; the Red Allen group, with Allen and Rex Stewart on trumpet, Pee Wee Russell on clarinet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, Nat Pierce on piano, Danny Barker on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass and Jimmy Crawford on drums; the Count Basie group, featuring vocalist Jimmy Rushing, trumpeter Emmett Berry, tenor sax Coleman Hawkins) alto sax Earl Warren, trombonist Vic Dickenson, guitarist Freddie Green, bassist Walter Page and drummer Bo Jones; and the Jimmy Giuffre trio (Giuffre on clarinet, tenor and baritone sax, Jim Hall on guitar and Ralph Pena. The highlight of the proceedings is a rare TV performance by the exquisite blues singer Billie Holliday, backed up by trumpeter Roy Eldridge, tenor sax Ben Webster, baritone sax Gerry Mulligan, trombonist Benny Morton and pianist Mal Waldron. Most of the existing film clips of Billie Holiday have in fact been gleaned from the kinescope version of "The Sound of Jazz", which originally aired live. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
