Jazz Legends: The Golden Age of Jazz: Part 1 collects some of the best jazz performances from the biggest names in jazz history. Archival footage brings to life the stars that made jazz music internationally known and critically acclaimed. Some of the performances include Cab Calloway's "Smokey Joe," Duke Ellington's "Stormy Weather," Louis Armstrong's "That's Why They Call Me Shine," the Mills Brothers' "I Ain't Got Nobody" and the Dorsey Brothers' "John Silver." The "Golden Age" of jazz is loosely considered output made in the 1930s and 1940s, where the genre was still being defined and modeled by its practitioners. During this time, many models for jazz were developed, from rag time to swing to bebop. Many of the most influential artists of the 20th century were making music around this time, including Louis Armstong, Duke Ellington into Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk and Max Roach. Jazz Legends: The Golden Ages of Jazz: Part 1 attempts to collect many of the reels of big band performers during their heyday to offer a new generation a way to experience the exciting and radically new music being produced at the time.moreless
