All You Need Is Love Vol 3: Jungle Music - Jazz (DVD)
Release Date: 05/05/09
Volume 3 Jungle Music - Jazz covers the music that brought forward names like Charles Mingus and Miles Davis.
From renowned British filmmaker Tony Palmer, the critically acclaimed BBC series All You Need is Love: Episode 3 'Jungle-Jazz'. Jazz is not a black or white music, nor is it structureless improvisation, nor did it originate in New Orleans. Created at the turn of the century throughout the American south, it had a quite specific and limited meaning. Its form was strict, as were the morals and musical principles which guided its early exponents. This film will seek to examine the origins of jazz and show how these were exploited and eventually lost by greed. Featuring footage from Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker,MJQ, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Dave Brubeck, Chick Corea & Mike Gibbs.
