Ed Bland's historically significant film, THE CRY OF JAZZ has finally made it
onto DVD. Adapted from Bland's book, THE FRUITS OF THE DEATH OF JAZZ, THE CRY
OF JAZZ is a fascinating analysis of the state of jazz music in the late 1950s

as deeply into the evils of racism and the appropriation of African-American art
forms by white jazz musicians.

story of his life and music, from his early years of poverty and imprisonment to

of the one and only Godfather of Soul, documenting the rise and fall of the
"hardest working man in show business." Through archival footage, excerpts read
from his biography, and interviews with the people closest to the man, you get
an inside look at the music and political times which helped shape Brown's
career through the ages.

South Bronx, beginning with the Puerto Rican migration and the adoption of Cuban
rhythms to create the New York Latin music sound; continuing with the fires that

ending with reflections on the power of a neighborhoods music to take the world
of pop culture by storm.
