Contents:

The History Of Jazz: Parts 1 and 2 (Color, 1986, 48 Minutes)
A scholastic educational program on the history of jazz, with archival footage of and performances by the great performers of the genre worldwide, with narration and demonstrations by Billy Taylor And His Band.

Duke Ellington: Symphony in Black: A Rhapsody of Negro Life (Black and White, 1935, 10 Minutes)
A nine-and-a-half minute musical short produced in 1935 that features Duke Ellington’s early extended piece and Billie Holiday’s screen debut, and was directed by Fred Waller and distributed by Paramount Pictures. Symphony in Black represents a landmark in musical, cultural, and entertainment history as well as significant progress in Ellington’s own biography. It is a member of the first generation of non-classically arranged orchestral scores and perhaps most importantly, one of the first films written by an African-American describing African-American life to reach wide distribution.

Signature: Benny Goodman (Color, 1981, 23 Minutes)
Benny Goodeman, American jazz clarinetist and bandleader known as the "King of Swing" , is here interviewed on the Signature television series. Having started his professional career at the age of 12, he was playing in band with Bix Beiderbecke two years later. By the mid-1930s, he led one of the most popular musical groups in the United States. His concert at Carnegie Hall in New York City on January 16, 1938 was the most important jazz concert in history, and was thought of as jazz's "coming out" party to the "respectable" musical world. Goodman's bands launched the careers of many major jazz artists. During an era of racial segregation, he led one of the first well-known integrated jazz groups. Goodman performed nearly to the end of his life while exploring an interest in classical music.

Sunday Night Medley (Color, 1988, 14 Minutes)
Selections from saxophonist David Sanborn's television show, including his live performances with Dizzy Gillespire and Mavis Staple, film outtakes of Thelonious Monk, Louis Jordan's "Brother, Beware!", and a rare television ad for former member of The Drifters Jimmy Jones' Ozone Ford.

Nat King Cole: This Is My Night To Dream (Black and White, 1955, 3 Minutes)
A vintage filmed performance featuring Cole on piano as well as vocals.
