Ken Burns: JazzTV-PGClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


The story, sound, and soul of a nation come together in the most American of art forms: Jazz. Ken Burns celebrates the music's soaring achievements, from its origins in blues and ragtime through swing, bebop, and fusion. Six years in the making, this "soundbreaking" series blends 75 interviews with major artists, such as Wynton Marsalis and Dave Brubeck, and critics; more than 500 pieces of music; 2,400 still photographs; and 2,000 rare and archival film clips including performances by Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and many more.

Motivation of the Masters

What an extraordinary peice of work. I love it so much, it has this great way of making us think of ideas.

Unforgetable & Riviting!

I saw this series on television and will never forget it. The Jazz series is an important MUST SEE for everyone. It is an important series that documents, like few other films and videos I have seen, the despicable racism African American's had to endure in the early to mid twenthieth century. It shows how racism affected Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker and so many other people. TRULY UNFORGETABLE!

Where is Civil War?

All of Ken Burns' work is awesome, but where is the Civil War series? That is his best stuff. I-Tunes has to put this out next.
