Four musical titans joined forces, quite by accident, in December 1956 at the Sun Records studio in Memphis. Rockabilly guitarist Carl Perkins, riding high on the success of "Blue Suede Shoes," was recording new songs, with a young Jerry Lee Lewis hired to play piano. Johnny Cash dropped by, and so did the King himself, Elvis Presley. The so-called Million Dollar Quartet started singing and playing together on gospel, country, and rock 'n' roll songs. One Night in Memphis recreates that magical jam session. This tribute to Presley, Perkins, Lewis, and Cash captures them at their peaks: wildly energetic, supremely confident, and breathing fire.
