Brilliant in-depth study by film maker Ken Burns of the Jazz era. Episode 7, DEDICATED TO CHAOS: When America enters World War II in 1941, jazz music goes to war, too. Swing becomes a symbol of democracy at home and bandleaders like Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw enlist and take their music to the men and women of the armed forces and overseas.
