When giants walked the earth -- or at least lounged around, having a good chatty time, on it. You can hear the joking voices now if you look closely at that marvelously spacious photograph.

John Calvin

A great day indeed. "When Generations Gather" would also have been an appropriate title.
Pity that The Duke, BG, Miles and Pops couldn't make it ...
Great further reading on the topic: "The Great Jazz Day" by Charles Graham (2000, Da Capo Press)
