Jazz, Jazz-Scored, and
Jazz Age Films: 1920s-Present

Jazz films are full-length feature films that meet one or more of these criteria:

NOTE: Some of the earlier films use unflattering racial stereotypes. Others seem to have written Black musicians out of jazz history. The all-Black films had to operate on much smaller budgets than the all-white ones did. Unfortunately, racism is part of the history of the development of film in general, but these jazz films still contain valuable jazz performances we have no access to in any other way.

All these films should be available at online sources like amazon.com; some may be found at your local video rental store.
