Great series Martin Scorsese put together for PBS back in 2003, enlisting the services of world renown directors, that is well worth watching if you haven't had the opportunity. It has been since released on DVD with a companion book. There were 7 episodes in all starting with Martin's Feel Like Going Home and ending with Clint Eastwood's Piano Blues. Where Ken Burns' documentary of Jazz barely scratched the surface, Scorsese and friends dig deep to unearth some great archival footage and fascinating contemporary observations.
