"Louis Armstrong's sound transcends time and style. This DVD captures that intangible power and allows us to gaze upon it in wonder."
"Amazing! To see the Art Blakey band playing "Moanin'" a month after I recorded them—it's like watching my own birth."

“These nine historic DVDs are among the most important visual/aural documents to be mined from the ever-yielding, seemingly hidden jazz treasury. Now, most importantly, they are available to the entire world.”
—Ira Gitler, co-author,
The Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz (Oxford)

alarming proliferation of jazz DVDs on the market today, and their extremely variable quality, it is good to know that Reelin’ In The Years can be trusted to bring viewers nothing but the best—in content and presentation.”
