Swing - Pure Pleasure
Some otherwise positive reviews argue that, due to this fast-forwarding through several decades of the music's development, Jazz offered a warped or inaccurate picture of jazz since 1960. For example, critic David Adler
writes that the first nine episodes, "Burns has done a respectable job
of introducing pre-1960 jazz history to a wide audience. In Episode
Ten, however, he gives viewers a disastrously skewed portrait of the
creative lineage that has produced much of today's best jazz."
