Ken Burns Jazz is the accompaniment to a film - the story as Burns tells it. In Burns' 10-part telling, the first nine episodes run through 1961, with the last summarizing the music since. This decision is a clear point of controversy, especially for those whose ears are more attuned to recordings of the '60s and beyond. Burns firmly contends that he is a historian, that he's telling a story of the inspiration behind the development of jazz. Those taking Burns' project overall as a manifesto - that jazz stopped decades ago - are overreacting or misinterpreting

Fats Waller is missing. So are Jon Hendricks, Stan Kenton, Eddie Jefferson, Lennie Tristano, Randy Weston, Eddie Harris, and Lester Bowie. World jazz, Latin jazz, contemporary jazz, Third Stream and free jazz are only hinted at. Burns stays with the mainstream of jazz in America.
Description: First coming to prominence with Count Basie's band in 1936, Lester Young defined a new way to play tenor saxophone, with a soft, airy sound and an understated beat. In the process, he was also creating a new way to play jazz, with a flowing, melodic inventiveness and a detachment that would influence the bop and cool schools to come. Young did much of his best work as a sideman in the first few years of his public career, and the first 13 tracks of this collection focus on his work up to 1940. Basie's hard-swinging big band was a terrific foil for Young's own novel.
