Jazz by Ken Burns( Visual )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Jazz video series by Ken Burns traces the history of Jazz from its roots in the African-American community of New Orleans to its heights and continuing presence. Despite the escalation of the Cold War and the growing threat of nuclear annihilation, America achieves a level of growth and prosperity unimaginable just a few years earlier. The nation's musical tastes are changing too, as young people turn to sentimental singers and rhythm and blues. One by one, the big bands leave the road, but Duke Ellington stubbornly keeps his band together, while Louis Armstrong puts together a small group, the "All-Stars", and spreads his fame around the globe. Impresario Norman Granz makes a success of his Jazz at the Philharmonic Tours, insisting on equal treatment for every member of his integrated troupes. Meanwhile, bebop, the music pioneered by Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Thelonious Monk, becomes the dominant language of jazz, though the music is not popular outside of the ranks of jazz fans, having been replaced by rhythm and blues in the hearts of young listeners. A devastating narcotics plague sweeps through the jazz community, ruining lives and changing the dynamics of performance. Charlie Parker is idolized throughout the music community, which leads to other musicians copying his drug addiction as well as his music. Charlie Parker never overcomes his own addiction, destroying himself at the age of 34. A group of California-based musicians create a sound, Cool Jazz, that is the opposite of bebop. These musicians include baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and pianist Dave Brubeck. Miles Davis records charts by composer Gil Evans and begins his ascendancy as the most important jazz artist of his generation

The Jazz video series by Ken Burns traces the history of Jazz from its roots in the African-American community of New Orleans to its heights and continuing presence. By the early 1960s, jazz is in trouble. Young people now overwhelmingly prefer rock 'n roll -- though Louis Armstrong manages to outsell the Beatles with "Hello Dolly" and Stan Getz helps boost a craze for Bossa Nova. Desperate for work, some musicians go into exile overseas, including the tenor saxophone master, Dexter Gordon. Critics divide the music into antagonistic "schools" -- Dixieland, swing, bebop, hard bop, modal, Free, avant-garde, and more. During the civil rights struggle, some artists mix music with social protest, including Max Roach, Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp, and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. John Coltrane links jazz to the quest for a higher consciousness and dies young. Miles Davis decides that if he cannot outsell rock musicians he should join forces with them, leading a movement of jazz musicians who incorporate elements of rock and soul into their music creating the enormously popular music called Fusion. Both Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington pass away during the 1970s, and to some, jazz seems to die with them. But just when things seem most desperate, Dexter Gordon returns from Europe, and proves that there is still an audience for mainstream jazz, and a new generation of musicians, led by the trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, emerges, eager to express themselves within the music's great traditions. The musical journey that began in the dance halls and saloons and street parades of New Orleans in the early years of the 20th century continues -- and shows no sign of slowing down. As it enters its second century, jazz is still alive, still changing and still swinging

The Jazz video series by Ken Burns traces the history of Jazz from its roots in the African-American community of New Orleans to its heights and continuing presence. In the mid 1930s, as the Great Depression stubbornly refuses to lift, jazz comes as close as it has ever come to being America's popular music. It has a new name -- Swing -- and for the first time musicians become matinee idols. Benny Goodman finds himself hailed as the "King of Swing", but he has a host of rivals, among them Tommy Dorsey, Jimmie Lunceford, Glen Miller, and Artie Shaw. Louis Armstrong heads a big band of his own. Duke Ellington continues his own independent course. Billie Holiday emerges from a childhood filled with tragedy to make her first joyous recordings and begin her career as the greatest of all female jazz singers. Benny Goodman demonstrates that in a rigidly segregated country there is still room in jazz for great black and white musicians to play side by side onstage. The episode's finale takes place on May 11, 1937, when 4,000 people gather at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem to witness what is billed as "The Music Battle of the Century", a showdown between Goodman and the indefatigable Chick Webb, a man who hates to lose
