1959: The Year that Changed Jazz

Directed by Paul Bernays
United Kingdom, 2009

Synopsis

In 1959, four major jazz albums were made, each a high water mark for the artists and a powerful reflection of the times. Rarely seen archive performances help vibrantly bring the era to life and explore what made these albums vital both in 1959 and the 50 years since.
