Prohibition and the Jazz Age

Monday, June 3, 2013 - 6:00pm

Prohibition was intended to stifle vice - but instead, it nourished clubs run by organized crime and created a hot bed for jazz - where "The parties were bigger…the pace was faster…and the morals were looser" (F. Scott Fitzgerald).  Ken burns joins host Wendell Pierce to bring us the sound of the speakeasies.  Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and James P. Johnson are on the menu as Doug Wamble and Vince Giordano join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
