"great ... but disappointing"
3 stars"

The Region 4 release of this series is around 12 hours long, and you'd think that was long enough. However, the Region 1 release is around 19 hours long.

It's a good series either way, but we're missing a lot in New Zealand. Not necessarily a reason not to get it, but be warned.

Description

Four disc box set. JAZZ: The story, sound and soul of a nation come together as acclaimed film maker, Ken Burns celebrates the American art form's soaring acheivements – from its origins in blues and ragtime to swing, bebop and fusion. Six years in the making, this ‘soundbreaking’ series combines the sublime sounds of Jazz with vintage film clips and stills as well as interviews with musicians, critics and historians. With over 11 hours of content, this magnificent series spotlights many of America's most original, creative – and tragic – artists, including: Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Chuck Webb and Wynton Marsalis.
