Continuing in the tradition of their critically acclaimed works, Geoffrey C. Ward and Ken Burns vividly bring to life the story of the quintessential American music--jazz. Born in the black community of turn-of-the-century New Orleans but played from the beginning by musicians of every color, jazz celebrates all Americans at their best.

Comments about PBS Jazz: A History of America's Music (Paperback):

How much better can it get? Learn how Jazz began, when and where and who did it, all with an incredible collection of photographs and early and late recordings. Wynton Marsalis is a joy to listen to. All the big names, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Bix Biederbeck, Jelly Roll Morton, New Orleans, Chicago, New York, The Cotton Club, Paul Whiteman, Bessie Smith, it's all there. If you like jazz, you'll love every episode.
