Summary
Masters of American Music is an award-winning television series of ten shows that celebrate a pantheon of the greatest innovators in Jazz. Both the video and audio content now has been restored and remastered in accordance with state-of-the-art specifications, employing award-winning tools exclusively for this production. Produced by Toby Byron, it was the first TV series devoted to Jazz. Individual programmes trace the lives and works of master musicians who defined the course of America's classical music. From its birth in New Orleans, to swing, the big bands, bebop, free Jazz and beyond: all of it is explored with sensitivity and in unique depth. A celebration a Basie's legacy No other musician was ever more committed to the proposition of stomping, shouting, swinging, jumping and dragging away the blues than Count Basie. Basie led one of the most enduring swing bands of all time. In Swingin' the Blues, a distinguished group of Basie alumni -- including early band stars Harry "Sweets" Edison, Earle Warren and Claude Williams and later stars like Illinois Jacquet, Buddy Tate and Joe Williams -- come together to lend their insights. Vintage performance footage beginning in the 1930s, and master recordings of the greatest Basie sessions abound in this only film about the great Count Basie. With Harry "Sweets" Edison, Al Grey, Illinois Jacquet, Jay McShann, Buddy Tate, Earle Warren, Claude Willilams, Joe Williams and Albert Murray. Narrated by Roscoe Lee Browne
