Speakeasies, flappers, and easy money: it is the Jazz Age, when the story of jazz becomes a tale of two great cities, Chicago and New York, and of two extraordinary artists whose lives and music will span almost three-quarters of a century - Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. Armstrong, a fatherless waif who grew up on the mean streets of New Orleans, develops his great gift - his unparalleled musical genius - with the help of King Oliver, the city's top cornetist.

The postwar years bring America to a level of prosperity unimaginable a decade before, but the Cold War threat of nuclear annihilation makes these anxious years as well. In jazz, this underlying tension will be reflected in the broken rhythms and dissonant melodies of bebop, and in the troubled life of bebop's biggest star, Charlie Parker.

A generation of musicians, faced with the overwhelming genius of Charlie Parker, embraces the challenge of moving beyond his innovations. The visionary pianist, Thelonius Monk, infuses bebop with his eccentric personality to create a music all his own, while John Lewis and the Modern Jazz Quartet refine bebop's balance between improvisation and composition. Except for musicians, the Beats and true jazz initiates, few people are listening to Parker and bebop. Traditionalists complain that it is musical noise, while Louis Armstrong, the first jazz revolutionary, mocks it, too.
