GREAT Episode 4 of Ken Burns' Jazz series. Lots of 30's Depression emphasis in this one, with focus on Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and, a bit later Benny Goodman. Interesting focus on race relations, etc. and how radio broadcast (particularly the 3 hour Saturday night 'Let's Dance') made jazz music generally available. And a few multi-racial ballroom venues made everyone 'welcome'. Loved seeing all that Lindy Hop dancing.
Interesting for me to learn about drummer Chick Webb.
When I try to place a hold on this episode the system says "Hold not allowed." How come?
