Simply the Best!, 14 January 2001
Author: brickwall from Pasadena, CA.

Ken Burns has done it again. "Jazz" is a wonderful overview of the history of Jazz music, America's classical music. Burns not only illustrates the music of Jazz, but also the African American experience. Which is "our" American experience.

Some noted Jazz critics have complained that Ken Burns over "simplified" Jazz as an art form. Or omitted various artists. However, "Jazz" is intended to be an overview or introduction, and not a doctorial thesis. So enjoy it.

I highly recommend "Jazz" and can't wait to get the DVD with its extras.
