The Sound of Jazz

Leave a comment

“The Sound of Jazz” is a 1957 episode of the CBS television series  The Seven Lively Arts, a short-lived anthology show that aired from 1957 to 1958.  This was one of the first major programs featuring jazz to air on American network television.  Although this video is not great quality, it’s still worth a look if you happen to be a jazz fan.  Or actually, even if you’re not as it features some of the biggest names in the genre – the legends – the ones that will convert you.  The host for the show’s seven episodes was early television critic, John Crosby.
