Great history layout with fantastic video. Bogged down in minutia abiut 3-4z. Felt drawn out. Loved watching the progress in infrastructure and automobiles during depression years as music lagged.

Review by Jo A. on 06/05/22 review stating And All that Jazz
Ken Burns Jazz is a compelling and all-encompassing documentary of the iconic music style through the ages. Done in the style he developed, it features priceless interviews, commentaries, and performances. It also documents the historical triumphs and indignities of the jazz musicians themselves.

Review by Grace on 05/17/22 review stating Ken Burns Jazz
Mr. Burns is the best contemporary filmmaker we have. I purchased this series as a gift for a person who loves jazz but has had little access to the great music of the last century.This film has captured the soul of that great music form in a way that embodies the history and the performances of the truly great!
