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Monk, becomes the dominant language of jazz, though the music is not popular outside of the ranks of jazz fans, having been replaced by rhythm and blues in the hearts of young listeners.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
