Jazz Icons: Lionel Hampton spotlights a fiery hour-long concert from one of the most beloved bandleaders in jazz history. Hamp, the irrepressible king of entertainers, plays vibes, drums, piano, and sings and dances as he and his legendary big band absolutely delight this Belgian audience.

Featuring stalwart jazz soloists such as Andy McGhee, Art Hoyle, Billy Mackel, Lou Blackburn, Bobby Plater, Wilbert Hogan, and Eddie Williams, the Hampton Orchestra plays Hamp's signature blend of jump blues, jazz, and rhythm 'n' blues, whipping the audience into a frenzy.

Hamp made it his mission to bring the joys of American music to the rest of the world and this video preserves an incredible example of his work for ages to come.
