The film intersperses performances from a wide variety of artists including Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Gerry Mulligan, Anita O'Day, and Dinah Washington, with footage of the audience and the Americas Cup yacht race which was underway at the time.
In 1999, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
