Description

There’s a reason why the Roaring 1920s was also known as the jazz age – it was an era when the spirit of swing permeated every facet of American life, from dancing to drinking to politics, and American jazz conquered the world. As part of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s salute to Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s newest documentary series, Prohibition, the ingenious Bill Charlap leads an all-star group including British jazz chanteuse Claire Martin in a demonstration of how and why the ’20s roared in music and song.
