Jazz is a documentary miniseries,released on DVD on 2001. The film concerns the history of jazz music in the USA, from its origins at the turn of the twentieth century to the present day.
 It is narrated by Keith David, and features interviews with present-day musicians and critics.
”The documentaries are so informative and so interesting that it is impossible not to learn something new. Ken Burns does a great job of explaining all the small details of Jazz music, even the less appealing aspects that have molded the music to what it is today. The different opinions voiced throughout are extremely credible and well-rounded. It is an impossible task to explain everything associated with Jazz music, but Ken Burns has come as close as anyone ever will.” Mike Thomas
