Description The story, sound, and soul of a nation come together in the most American of art forms: JAZZ. Ken Burns, who riveted the nation with THE CIVIL WAR and BASEBALL, celebrates the music's soaring achievements, from their origins in blues and ragtime through swing, bebop, and fusion. Six years in the making, this "soundbreaking" series blends 75 interviews, more than 500 pieces of music, 2,400 still photographs, and over 2,000 rare and archival film clips to illuminate the lives and times of jazz's extraordinary personalities. The 10-part musical journey puts in the spotlight many of America's most original and creative figures, including Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, and Miles Davis. With JAZZ, you'll never see or hear America the same way again.

This DVD is encoded for Region 1 (U.S. & Canada only) and will probably NOT be viewable in other countries.
