On December 4, 1956, an auspicious twist of fate brought together Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley. The place was Sun RecordsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ storefront studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Father of Rock-n-Roll,Ã¢â‚¬Â Sam Phillips, who discovered them all. The four legends-to-be united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording session that embodied the birth of rock Ã¢â‚¬ËœnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ roll and has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time.
Million Dollar Quartet captures the infectious spirit, freewheeling excitement and thrilling sounds of a singular moment when four of popular musicÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime, came together for a night that would raise the roof.
