Excellent! So much history that I was totally unaware of. And wow, how wonderfully this was presented. I've not been so entertained by a documentary that was so full of so many aspects of our history...race, gender, politics. war, segregation... Well done!

Wow, excellent watch and wonderful subject matter! I can't believe I knew nothing about this rich history after years as a (girl) trombone player. Definitely an important piece of jazz history that deserves the attention!
