Jazz - A Film by Ken Burns-Episode 1 "Gumbo"

Episode 1 "Gumbo" (Beginnings to 1917)

"Gumbo" traces the roots of jazz from the 1800s to 1917. The viewer will catch glimpses of Jelly Roll Morton, who erroneously claimed to have invented jazz, and the tragic, though influential, figure of trumpeter Buddy Bolden.
