Jazz Scene USA's broadcast over nationally syndicated television in 1962 was cause for joy among jazz fans, and acclaimed at the same time by most critics as the finest program of its kind. The brainchild of life-long jazz devotee Steve Allen, the series showcases many of the very best California-based jazz performers, not to mention rare TV appearances by outstanding national acts as well. All are featured without commercial restraints in a relaxed, casual atmosphere created by hipster host, singer Oscar Brown, Jr. Uncompromising in its use of imaginative camera angles, the visual style is on a par with the creativity of the music. These shows are time capsules to treasure from America's golden age of televised Jazz.
