Robbie Gerson
Audiophile Audition, December 2011

Masters Of American Music – The Story Of Jazz may be the most concise informative documentary on jazz to date. Five discs consisting of six and a half hours of material is presented in concise, informative segments. Comparisons to Ken Burns’ Jazz are inevitable, but unnecessary. This documentary combines extremely rare footage of performances and interviews to analyze the evolution of jazz and highlight four of its icons….the release of this limited edition digitally re-mastered set is good news for the world of jazz.

Masters Of American Music – The Story Of Jazz is a treasure. The mono sound is surprisingly clear and subtle. For anyone who is a jazz fan, this will be a welcome addition to their collection. For those looking to discover jazz for the first time, there is no better way to start. © 2011 Audiophile Audition Read complete review



The Other Chad
Blogcritics, November 2011

Euroarts has done a big favor for jazz fans by putting these discs together in one package at a very reasonable price. Given the age of each documentary, the audio/visual quality is nowhere near what we expect from modern high-definition productions. But they are consistently watchable in all cases, with clear archival footage and serviceable audio that convey the brilliance of the artist being profiled. Read complete review
