"...unravels like a fine wine, its musky tendrils unfurling at a leisurely pace as Burns works his magic... Jason Van Bergen, TheCritics.org
Editor's NoteFor the third part of his American Trilogy--following THE CIVIL WAR and BASEBALL--Ken Burns takes on "that most American of art forms": jazz. The 10-part, 19-hour film begins with the music's roots in post-Civil War New Orleans and concludes roughly a century later. The story focuses not only on the personalities and events that helped define the music but also on the social and cultural climate in which they emerged, making KEN BURNS' JAZZ a film about more than just music.
