A spectacular song‐and‐dance revue filmed in luminous early Technicolor—rediscovered and newly restored Made during the early years of the movie musical, this exuberant revue was one of the most extravagant, eclectic, and technically ambitious Hollywood productions of its day. Starring the bandleader PAUL WHITEMAN, then widely celebrated as the King of Jazz, the film drew from Broadway variety shows of the time to present a spectacular array of sketches, performances by such acts as the Rhythm Boys (featuring a young BING CROSBY), and orchestral numbers overseen by Whiteman himself (including a larger‐than‐life rendition of GEORGE GERSHWIN’s “Rhapsody in Blue”)—all lavishly staged by veteran theatre director JOHN MURRAY ANDERSON and beautifully shot in early Technicolor. Long available only in incomplete form, King of Jazz appears here newly restored to its original glory, offering a fascinating snapshot of the way mainstream American popular culture viewed itself at the dawn of the 1930s. Features: New 4K digital restoration by Universal Pictures, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack New audio commentary featuring jazz and film critic Gary Giddins, music and cultural critic Gene Seymour, and musician and bandleader Vince Giordano New introduction by Giddins New interview with musician and pianist Michael Feinstein Four new video essays by authors and archivists James Layton and David Pierce on the development and making of King of Jazz Deleted scenes and alternate opening‐title sequence All Americans, a 1929 short film featuring a version of the “Melting Pot” number that was restaged for the finale of King of Jazz I Know Everybody and Everybody’s Racket, a 1933 short film featuring Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra Two Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoons from 1930, featuring music and animation from King of Jazz

New Orleans, 1918. The birth of jazz, the Spanish flu, an ax murderer on the loose. The lives of a traumatized cop, a conflicted Mafia matriarch, and a brilliant trumpeter converge - and Crescent City gets the rich, dark, sweeping audiobook it so deserves. From Odds Against Tomorrow author Nathaniel Rich, one of the most inventive minds of his generation, King Zeno is a historical crime audiobook and a searching inquiry into man's dreams of immortality. New Orleans in the early 20th century is a city determined to reshape its destiny and, with it, the nation's. Downtown, a new American music is born. In Storyville, prostitution is outlawed, and the police retake the streets with maximum violence. In the Ninth Ward, laborers break ground on a gigantic canal that will split the city, a work of staggering human ingenuity intended to restore New Orleans' faded mercantile glory. The war is ending, and a prosperous new age dawns. But everything is thrown into chaos by a series of murders committed by an ax-wielding maniac with a peculiar taste in music. The murders scramble the fates of three people from different corners of town. Detective William Bastrop is an army veteran haunted by an act of wartime cowardice, recklessly bent on redemption. Isadore Zeno is a jazz cornetist with a dangerous side hustle. Beatrice Vizzini is the widow of a crime boss, who yearns to take the family business straight. Each nurtures private dreams of worldly glory and eternal life, their ambitions carrying them into dark territories of obsession, paranoia, and madness. In New Orleans, a city built on swamp, nothing stays buried for long. Listeners will thrill at the chance to engage in a little imaginative excavation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Holter Graham.

They are humanity's defense against the supernatural. They are the light in the darkness. They are the guardians that walk in the night. They are The Shadow Council. His father called him Adam. The people called him monster. History gave him only his father's name. Quincy Harker calls him friend. He is Adam, the greatest creation and greatest failure of Victor Frankenstein. Trapped in a life he never sought, in a world that will never understand him, he roams the Earth searching for understanding, searching for his own humanity. And now he roams the streets of New Orleans searching for a missing Archangel and a trumpet that can herald the coming of the Apocalypse. Adam's task in the Quest for Glory is to find Sealtiel, the Herald of Heaven, and bring the angel to Quincy Harker to unlock the mysteries that will restore Glory's divinity. But dark forces are at work in the Crescent City, and magic-users are dying in horrible ways all over town. Will Adam find the angel before the last note is still in the city of jazz? 1.
