The Jazz video series by Ken Burns traces the history of Jazz from its roots in the African-American community of New Orleans to its heights and continuing presence. When America enters World War II in 1941, jazz music goes to war, too. Swing becomes a symbol of democracy at home and entertainers like Dave Brubeck, Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw take their music to the men and women of the armed forces overseas. In Nazi-occupied Europe, where the gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt develops his own distinctive way of playing the music, jazz becomes a symbol of freedom and the hope of liberation. In New York, the heart of jazz has moved from Harlem to 52nd Street -- where Billie Holiday reigns as unofficial queen despite a growing addiction to narcotics. Duke Ellington leads what some believe to have been the greatest of all his bands -- helped now by the gifted young arranger, Billy Strayhorn -- and brings his music to ever-greater heights. Meanwhile, underground and after-hours, a small band of gifted young musicians led by the trumpet virtuoso Dizzy Gillespie and saxophonists Charlie Parker and Ben Webster begin to develop a new way of playing -- fast, intricate, and infinitely demanding for musicians and listeners alike. Due to a recording ban it goes largely unheard until November of 1945, when Parker and Gillespie are finally able to go into the recording studio together. With the release of "Koko" the new music called bebop begins to spread, and with Louis Armstrong's influence, jazz becomes rhythm and blues, altering the course of jazz forever. Meanwhile in 1945, black soldiers return home to the same racism they fought against, and a growing unrest sets the seeds for future rebellions

The Jazz video series by Ken Burns traces the history of Jazz from its roots in the African-American community of New Orleans to its heights and continuing presence. In the mid 1930s, as the Great Depression stubbornly refuses to lift, jazz comes as close as it has ever come to being America's popular music. It has a new name -- Swing -- and for the first time musicians become matinee idols. Benny Goodman finds himself hailed as the "King of Swing", but he has a host of rivals, among them Tommy Dorsey, Jimmie Lunceford, Glen Miller, and Artie Shaw. Louis Armstrong heads a big band of his own. Duke Ellington continues his own independent course. Billie Holiday emerges from a childhood filled with tragedy to make her first joyous recordings and begin her career as the greatest of all female jazz singers. Benny Goodman demonstrates that in a rigidly segregated country there is still room in jazz for great black and white musicians to play side by side onstage. The episode's finale takes place on May 11, 1937, when 4,000 people gather at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem to witness what is billed as "The Music Battle of the Century", a showdown between Goodman and the indefatigable Chick Webb, a man who hates to lose
