Jazz

I’ve watched all the Ken Burns documentaries.  Some in part, others in their entirety-some of those multiple times.  “Jazz” belongs in the latter category.  It’s just stunning.  This 10 part series shows you the genesis of an American art form.

The common thread that runs through the series is the life, and influence of Louis Armstrong.  The mark that “Pops” left on the world is hard to fathom.  I’m not a religious person, but that man makes me believe that he was a gift to the world.

Even if you’re not a fan of the genre, it’s worth the watch.

If you’re a PBS subscriber it’s available on their app, iTunes and many other places where one can consume media.
