First time i watched the series was over ten years ago.
I had prior to that no interest whatsoever in Jazz.
Watching the series changed my thinking, and now, nearly all I listen to is Jazz.
Well I had been looking for another set of the series (I gave mine away) and finally got a set for $40 in fine condition.
I have been rewatching it for the first time in ten plus years, and am up through volume four.
I have to say it is spectacular, even more so than i remember it.
All the music, the stories, the still photos, the little bios..
Makes me wish I had just learned more about Jazz whan I was young.
I am happy though, that even though it took me 50 years to realize I love jazz, it is still a wonderful feeling to listen to it.
Thanks to all those players and folks who loved Jazz so i can still listen to it today.
