Robert Wyatt presents a musical lecture on the sounds born on the plantations of the South, a strange melding of African rhythms, call and response patterns shouted by field hands and traditional European harmonies supplied by slave owners. Before long "the blues" found its voice within the mix and eventually one word was used to describe the vital new music - jazz.
