Icons Among Us: Jazz in the Present Tense

Jazz is the most uniquely American of all musical forms, a form of expression that's joyous, challenging and powerful. After more than a century, jazz remains a vital art form in which the lessons of great artists of the past are studied by fresh young talents who shape them in innovative directions. This DVD introduces viewers to some of the leading lights of contemporary jazz -- veteran musicians such as Herbie Hancock, modern day masters including Terrence Blanchard, young ensembles like  Medeski Martin & Wood, and rising stars such as Ravi Coltrane. By combining archival footage, interviews with 75 jazz artists and live concerts, Icons Among Us is a dynamic document of many of the greatest jazz musicians of today.

Official selection at the 2009 Seattle International Film Festival.
