A rediscovered classic, restored in 2K from an archival 35MM fine grain master struck by the Library of Congress from the nitrate negative. The love story between a young trumpeter (Jackie Cooper) and New Orleans-born piano player [Bonita Granville] merely serves as the backdrop for this feature that traces the evolution of jazz from the early sounds of Dixieland to ragtime in Chicago up though the swing era. Also starring Adolphe Menjou and Todd Duncan and featuring such musical talents as Harry James, Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, Charlie Barnet, and Gene Krupa.
