Jazz is not a black music, nor a white music. Nor is it structureless improvisation. Nor did it originate in New Orleans. As created at the turn of the century throughout the Amerian 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. Jazz is a story of apartheid in music in which a unique blend of white musical discipline and black sensibility was comprised and laid waste. featuring Charles Mingus Charlie Parker Chick Corea Count Basie Dave Brubeck Dizzy Gillespie Duke Ellington Earl Fatha Hines George Shearing Hoagy Carmichael Ian Carr John Lewis Kid Ory Louis Armstrong Mike Gibbs Miles Davis Paul Whiteman
