GREAT JAZZ DOCUMENTARIES... for you!
We've had a great day of Jazz on KMSU today, and it feels like this should be an annual thing. I gotta get out and enjoy this perfect weather day, but here are several remarkable documentaries to keep the Jazz going. Sadly, none of them are Ken Burns' Jazz, but you'll just have to track that one down for yourself. If you're on the fence about Jazz, that one will make it a done deal.
Blue Note: A Story of Modern Jazz (1997)
Charlie Mingus (1968)
Miles Ahead: The Music of Miles Davis (1986)
The World According to John Coltrane (1990)
A Great Day In Harlem (1994)
Sun Ra: A Joyful Noise (1980)
