The Story of Jazz puts the crown on the "Masters of American Music" series. As entertaining as it is informative, it is a seamless array of performances, comments, and compelling historic insight. This colourful tale of cross-cultural influences that produced a constantly evolving and enduring music is a rich 97-minute weave of sounds, rare film clips, stills and interviews. Never before have the filmed comments of so many important jazz artists been assembled for one project, and never before has the history of jazz been told as vividly and with such attention to historic detail.
