It came out of the dark heart of America, the aura, the smoke-filled essence of jazz; the music of joy and abandon, yearning. New cadences, accents, pulsations. Nights of improvisation and hot rapturous jazz found its way to New York's 52nd street, the mecca, featuring the soul of this jazz, its voices, its prophets, its players.

The All That Jazz series, compiled from historical archive footage, animated photography and original music, chronicles the evolution of Jazz from it's roots in the 19th Century to the new millenium, exploring the creation, development and fusion of the music styles and all the artists who created the unique sound that is Jazz.

All That Jazz - From New Orleans to New York is an anthology of Jazz music which prior to the popular swing era of the 1930's and '40s is often referred to as 'early jazz.' Through its origins before the turn of the 20th Century, jazz had evolved from a regional music, central to New Orleans and its surroundings, to a musical style at the forefront of national and international popular music by the 1930s and 1940's.

Included in this programme are profiles and the music of Huddie 'Leadbelly' Leadbetter, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Benny Goodman, The Dorsey Brothers, Django Reinhardt, Jelly Roll Morton and many more.
