Jazz Goes to Hollywood

The twentieth century gave birth to two art forms: cinema and jazz. The masses embraced them as new manifestations of the collective memory and universal expression. Different sounds and images appeared and new technologies made their diffusion possible.
Jazz musicians created not only their own music, but improvised on popular, classical, or religious themes, transforming them into their own artistic needs. The special magic of screenwriters contributed to the translation of novels, plays, and folk stories into the film medium.
