Ken Burns JAZZ, and a drama of love and loyalty against all odds | Passport Picks

April is Jazz Appreciation Month and we celebrate with a look at the journey of jazz.

Jazz has been called the purest expression of American democracy; a music built on individualism and compromise, independence and cooperation. Ken Burns follows the growth and development of jazz music from the gritty streets of New Orleans to Chicago’s south side, the speakeasies of Kansas city and to Times Square.

Catch This Two-Part Drama from the Walter Presents Collection

In the spring of 1873, people from all over the world come to the village of Goschenen. Tunnel of Dreams tells the story of love, friendships, loyalty and uprisings set against the biggest and most spectacular construction site of modern times: the tunnel through the Gotthard. From Walter Presents, in Swiss German with English subtitles.
