Between 1960-1968, the Jazz Casual TV series presented jazz music to American audiences in an intimate, informal setting on a regular basis.
Conceived, created, produced, and hosted by noted music critic Ralph J. Gleason, selected episodes of these half-hour shows are now available for the first time since their original airing.
Each tape also contains an original Rhino-produced short on Gleason’s life and times. Legendary vocalists Carmen McRae, Mel Tormé, and Jimmy Rushing’s respective appearances on Jazz Casual are featured on this DVD.
Includes two audio options (original mono or enhanced 5.1 audio) and animated menus.
