Batman: Jazz #1

Batman hates rock and roll, but what does he feel about jazz?

If you’re having trouble watching this video on the Screenwave player, you can view it on youtube HERE.

NOTE: I have been informed that it’s likely “Blue Byrd” is a stand-in for Charles “Bird” Parker, an influential jazz player who helped create be-bop, who died of a drug-overdose in the mid-1950s. I’m not entirely certain of how I feel about the idea that in the comic that not only did they die in Gotham, but they faked their death to go study in Europe. In addition, that “The Dewey Brothers” area a stand-in for the Dorsey Brothers, who are unfairly called trash in the comic.
