finest jazz live concert performance

Do you know the finest jazz live concert performance happened on 15 May 1953 at Massey Hall, Toronto, Canada ?
The performer are: Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus, Bud Powell, and Max Roach.
Some interesting events happened on this concert. First, The concert schedule actually conflicted with a televised heavyweight boxing match between Rocky Marciano and Jersey Joe Walcott so before 2nd session began (when break time) the musicians watched televion in a bar in front of Massey Hall. Second, Charlie Parker performed trumpet which borrowed from music shop at Toronto.

If you are jazz lover, you should buy the CD ! :-)
