Hollywood’s Golden Age
The history of cinema in the United States can trace its roots to the East Coast where, at one time, Fort Lee, New Jersey, was the motion-picture capital of America. The industry got its start at the end of the 19th century with the construction of Thomas Edison‘s “Black Maria“, the first motion-picture studio in West Orange, New Jersey. The cities and towns on the Hudson River and Hudson Palisades offered land at costs considerably less than New York City across the river and benefited greatly as a result of the phenomenal growth of the film industry at the turn of the 20th century.

JAZZ (Documentary)
2001 Ken Burns‘ JAZZ was a thematic and chronological story of Jazz, from it’s creation at the turn of the 20th Century, and following its evolution into the 1960s, when Miles Davis defined Cool, and was on the verge of creating the next evolution of Jazz. (FUSION) JAZZ 2.0
Burn’s makes entertaining use of vintage photographs to lead a viewer on a musical journey through American History. Telling the personal stories of the innovative musicians who did much to influence the sound of American music. A sound that was soon heard around the World.

1940s — American music, like music everywhere, was evolving and changing with the times, especially as the United States entered the Second World War. The popular white jazz musicians of the day, including  Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Woody Herman, and Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, introduced black arrangements into their compositions and scores, moving Jazz into its Big Band period of the 1940s. Large bands, made up of a mix of black and white musicians, toured the United States and filled the radio with the music called Swing.
