ken burns jazz - the story of america's music

O diretor e produtor de documentários Kenneth Lauren Burns, mais conhecido como Ken Burns, levou anos produzindo a série ‘Jazz’. Nele, Burns conta a história do jazz desde os primórdios, no início do século XX, até o fim dos anos 90. O documentário centra-se em uma série de grandes músicos: Louis Armstrong e Duke Ellington são as figuras centrais, que giram em torno de outras grandes figuras como: Sidney Bechet, Stan Levey, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis e John Coltrane. Baseada na série foi lançada uma caixa com cinco CDs chamada ‘Ken Burns Jazz: The Story of American’s Music’.

São 94 canções que abrangem uma grande quantidade de músicos e várias fases do jazz. Os discos seguem uma ordem cronológica. No primeiro CD, são encontradas pérolas como ‘Stardust’, com Louis Armstrong, ‘Dead Man Blues’, com Jelly Roll Morton, e ‘Backwater Blues’, interpretada por Bessie Smith. O segundo disco destaque para Duke Ellington e Chuck Webb. O terceiro CD abrange o fim dos anos 40 e início dos 50, quando mestres como Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker e Thelonious Monk brilhavam.

E grandes gravações como ‘I Get a Kick out of You”’, no trompete de Clifford Brown, ‘Giant Step’, com o saxofonista John Coltrane, ‘In The Mood’, com a orquestra de Glenn Miller, a marcante ‘Take Five’, com o quarteto de Dave Brubeck; o trompete de Chet Baker e o sax de Gerry Mulligan, em ‘Walking Shoes’. Na parte vocal, destaque para Billie Holiday, em ‘Strange Fruit’ e ‘Fine e Mellow’ e Sarah Vaughan no clássico ‘They Can’t Take That Away From Me’. No grande universo que é o jazz, cinco CDs não é nada e muito coisa não foi incluída e grandes cantoras como Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day e Carmen McRae ficaram de fora. Dos artistas mais contemporâneos estão presentes Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis e a cantora Cassandra Wilson.
