(from the TV series "Jazz")
Various - Sony Music

This amazing five-CD boxed set contains the soundtrack music from the documentary series "Jazz," produced by America's storyteller Ken Burns. The soundtrack to the ten-part series contains nearly 100 songs, ranging from ragtime and swing to bebop and fusion. Detailed annotations and a suggested discography accompany the best and most important jazz recordings ever made. The legacy of jazz greats is their music, and this collection gives a comprehensive aural account of the birth of America's quintessential art form: jazz. Contents include: Star Dust (Louis Armstrong & His Orchestra); Dead Man Blues (Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers); Hotter Than 'Ell (Fletcher Henderson & His Orchestra); I Got Rhythm (Ethel Waters); It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) (Duke Ellington & His Orchestra); Moten Swing (Benny Moten's Kansas City Orchestra); St. Thomas (Sonny Rollins); Django (The Modern Jazz Quartet); Take Five (Dave Brubeck Quartet); Tanya (Dexter Gordon); Soon All Will Know (Wynton Marsalis) and many others.
