    Summary ofJazz A Film By Ken Burns DVD

    Among the positive critics, Charles Paul Freund wrote that Jazz "is filled with rewards, many of them proffered unintentionally ... Burns's documentary gifts are not visionary, analytical, nor even properly historical. Rather, he is a talented biographer,Jazz A Film By Ken Burns DVD and his films are most effective when he is able to present an overarching narrative in terms of the biographical detail of that narrative's participants."Jason Van Bergen declared, "The nearly 19 hours of documentary coverage contained in the Jazz series unravels like a fine wine" and due to the series' attention to detail, "a complete discussion of every episode in Ken Burns's Jazz would be better suited for a Master's Thesis" than to his brief review. Van Bergen sums up, writing, "Burns's encyclopedic rendering of the growth of jazz cannot be questioned. Followers of the music will need this set on their shelves; but perhaps slightly more surprisingly, serious students of American history may also require the set to supplement their versions of the past century."
