This is just one of those things that make us unique in the world--Jazz. "Singin' the Blues" is the personafication of this American art. If Cuban music is the marriage betwwen the drum(African) and guitar(Spanish) then this thing called jazz would be the marriage between guitar(blues) and horn. Thank you Ken Burns for your capture of this important elemant of our history.
