From the back cover of the 2000 release:
"In 1957 the Newport Jazz festival had established itself as the premier live event on the jazz calendar. Also in 1957, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Carmen McRae were three of the greatest singers jazz had ever heard.

So what's more unbelievable: that these performers appeared on successive nights on the same stage, or that a complete issue of their work there, though recorded, has never been released?

Here are the complete sets that Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Carmen McRae performed"
