BBC Special: 1959: The Year that Changed Jazz

A good year for Jazz.

I stumbled across this 4 part series about the state of jazz in 1959, by the BBC.

A total of 1 hour, the report focuses on 4 albums: Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue", Dave Brubeck's "Time Out", Charles Mingus' "Mingus Ah Um" and and Ornette Coleman's "The Shape of Jazz to Come".
