Not a big Jazz fan, still enjoyed these dvds.
Thanks to this documentary I found the name of a piece of music I fell in love with when I was a preschooler back in the early 60s. It was "Take Five" by the Dave Brubeck Quartet. It was on the radio a lot for a while when I was little, never caught it's name.

Also, "Take Five" is featured in the movie "Pleasantville".
