GUEST,LEJ Ken Burns Jazz? Really that stupid? (58* d) RE: BS: Ken Burns? Really that stupid? 11 Jan 01


I thought the third episode was the weakest thus far.It seems a bit like Burns is padding the episodes in order to get a full six monumental segments.I'm getting rather tired of hearing reiteration of how great Louis Armstrong was and seeing the same five early pictures of him.Is it possible that Burns found that there was a scarcity of hard info and photos on the early age of Jazz?

At any rate,the third episode left us in 1930,on the brink of the Big Band era with Lionel Hampton,Glenn Miller,Tommy Dorsey,and Count Basie in the offing,so things should pick up.
