Incredible performance at the 2002 North Sea Jazz Festival with songs such as 'Nutbush City Limits,' 'Proud Mary,' 'Rocket 88' and many more.

Ike Turner's outstanding musicianship is very evident from this concert performance filmed at the 2002 North Sea Jazz Festival which features highlights from his extraordinary five-decade career. The package includes blazing versions of the big hits Nutbush City Limits, Proud Mary and Rocket 88. Ike Turner, the man widely credited as making the first-ever rock'n'roll record, died in December 2007, at the age of 76. One of the most important and influential figures in popular music, he played a key role in the development of rock 'n' roll, soul and funk music from its early roots in Fifties R&B. Truly multi-talented, as a writer, music scout, arranger, performer and musician, Ike was responsible for a string of classic recordings and hits over the years. Teaming up with future wife Tina in the late Fifties, the duo produced some of the most memorable soul and funk records of the Sixties and early Seventies, many of which crossed over into the pop mainstream. Ike's immense music talent tended to be unfairly overlooked at times in favor of the media's fascination with his often controversial personal life, such as his stormy relationship with Tina and his notorious abuse of cocaine over many years. Always a much-respected figure amongst hip-hop and R&B stars, his musical legacy has since been recognized by the rest of the music community.
