The DVD set also includes three full-length performances not seen in the film: Louis Armstrong's "I Cover the Waterfront" from 1933, Duke Ellington's "C Jam Blues" from 1942, and Miles Davis's "New Rhumba" from 1959. Finally, the 16-minute documentary "Making of Jazz" provides insight into the production of the film. Ken Burns and producer Lynn Novick (who both admit their lack of musical training) discuss their process of researching and collecting materials, Wynton Marsalis mentions how he suggested to Burns the topic of jazz after the trumpeter became a fan of The Civil War, and narrator Keith David is shown recording his lines. --David Horiuchi

|Most striking omissions||
Very well said. I think it is absolutely outrageous that Burns chose to omit one of the greatest jazz pianists this world has ever seen and that would be The Magician, a/k/a Erroll Garner.

|does this set include a music only disc, too?||
No this is only a 10 DVD (Video) set. You might still find the soundtrack on CD if you are lucky (several discs long).
