Summary
It's the Roaring Twenties and jazz is flourishing everywhere in America. Individual performers like Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong take center stage, and white musicians like Bix Beiderbecke and the young Benny Goodman prove that jazz has a voice outside of the African-American community. Also profiled are Artie Shaw, Sidney Bechet, Earl Hines, and Ethel Waters
