From Library Journal:

These two discs contain 103 tunes (five hours of music from more than 60 artists), 30 minutes of historic video, and 60 minutes of video lessons to tell the history and development of jazz piano. Disc 1 offers a choice of jazz venues/eras: 52nd St., Harlem, Carnegie Hall, Chicago, Ragtime, Greenwich Village, and Kansas City. Select a location or time period and get a choice of performers, including Eubie Blake, Count Basie, Teddy Wilson, Erroll Garner, Scott Joplin, Jellie Roll Morton, Mary Lou Williams, Duke Ellington, and Thelonious Monk. Each artist is represented by a brief biography, an analysis of their musical style and contributions to jazz, a discography, some musical samples, photographs, and sometimes a video of the artist performing. There are some historical essays on time periods, an excellent bibliography of secondary sources, and a MIDI studio, available only in the pro version, allows you to study every song note-by-note. Unfortunately, the list of tunes and artists is not hyperlinked. This needs to be corrected in future releases. Disc 2 requires more musical knowledge from the user: it's a series of lectures by Dick Hyman (although you pretty much only see his hands "lecturing") on Art Tatum, Boogie Woogie, Block Chords, Piano in the Rhythm Section, Bud Powell and Bebop, Earl Hines, Teddy Wilson, and Erroll Garner. The Bottom Line: This titleAespecially Disc 2Acould be improved by including more songs by the original artists (rather than rendered only by Hyman), but it will appeal to music and piano students.
