Between 1945 and 1955 jazz splinters into different camps: cool and hot, East and West, traditional and modern. One by one, the big bands leave the road, but Duke Ellington keeps his band together, while Louis Armstrong puts together a small group, the "All-Stars." Promoter Norman Granz insists on equal treatment for every member of his integrated troupes on his Jazz at the Philharmonic Tours. Meanwhile, bebop musicians Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker are creating some of the most inventive jazz ever played but a devastating narcotics plague sweeps through the jazz community, ruining lives and changing the dynamics of performance. And a number of great performers including Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Gerry Mulligan, Thelonious Monk, Paul Desmond, Bille Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and John Lewis find new ways to bring new audiences to jazz

In the mid 1930s, as the Great Depression refuses to lift, Benny Goodman finds himself hailed as the "King of Swing" and becomes the first white bandleader to hire black musicians. He has a host or rivals among them, Chick Webb, Tommy Dorsey, Jimmie Lunceford, Glen Miller and Artie Shaw. Louis Armstrong heads a big band of his own, while Duke Ellington continues his independent course, but great black artists still can't eat or sleep in many of the hotels where they perform. Billie Holiday emerges from a childhood of tragedy to begin her career as the greatest of all female jazz singers

" ... a distinguished group of Basie alumni -- including early band members Sweets Edison, Earle Warren and Claude Williams and later stars like Buddy Tate, Illinois Jacquet and Joe Williams -- have come together to lend their insight to this film, in probing on-camera interviews and an unprecedented round-table reminiscence. Basie himself appears in revealing interview clips from various stages of his life. And, most importantly, there is the music: vintage performance footage beginning in the late 1930s, and master recordings of the greatest Basie sessions"--Container

"Both concerts feature stellar European and American side-musicians including Harry 'Sweets' Edison on trumpet and drummer 'Papa' Jo Jones--both jazz legends in their own right. The 1962 show is a newly-discovered one-hour concert from the Adolphe Sax Festival in Belgium, which has never been seen. Coleman Hawkins, 'The father of jazz saxophone,' demonstrates in these two concerts why he is still considered one of the most important innovators in the history of jazz."--Container
