A two part documentary, moderated by Dee Dee Bridgwater.
On the search for the roots and origins of Jazz, we journey into the European and African music traditions and discover the cultural heritages of Jazz from Rio to New Orleans.
On the road where European and African music converge, we discover the diverse influences of Jazz and her offshoots that exist today. New styles and revivals of past traditions enrich Jazz and render it the essential element of our entire music culture.
With Louis Armstrong, Olu Dara, Billie Holiday, Nicholas Payton, Dianne Reeves, Tito Puente, Chucho Valdés, and others.
