Ariel Cyber Publicity drew my attention to the above program on the Documentary Channel.

"Since we love and respect Bebop Is Spoken Here (sic), we wanted to make sure you were aware of the biggest jazz event to hit TV this year.
Icons Among Us: Jazz in the present tense is a documentary film series that captures the metamorphosis of jazz by showcasing the words, music, and spirit of the artists that are paving the way for an unprecedented musical evolution.

Unfortunately, I don't think it is due to be shown in the UK - at least not yet.

Hi Lance,
Not sure if it's coming to the UK but we will soon have video excerpts available and it will eventually be available on DVD. The best way to stay up to date would be to become a fan on Facebook and a friend on Myspace.
