On December 4th, 1956 an event occurred that was to
jam session started at Sam Phillips' Sun Records

Lewis and Elvis Presley.
The jam session seems to have happened by pure chance
all of these Sun recording artists dropped by to give Sam Phillips a
holiday visit on that same day. When Elvis wandered over to the
piano and started
playing a seasonal song… the others
joined in and the jam session began.
Cowboy Jack Clement was the sound engineer that day
remembers saying to himself "I think I'd be remiss not to record
this" and so he did and the rest
history. After running through a
number of songs, Elvis
and girlfriend Linda Evans slipped out as
Jerry Lee pounded away on the piano.
Cash claims in his auto-
biography that "no one wanted to follow Jerry Lee, not even
Elvis." During the session Phillips spotted an opportunity
some publicity and called a local newspaper and
entertainment editor, came over accompanied by a photographer.
The following day, an article
the session, was published
under the title "Million Dollar Quartet." The article
the now-famous photograph of Elvis seated at the piano
Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash.
