The Jazz Singer

 (1927)

The Jazz Singer Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

For five generations, men in the Rabinowitz family have been Cantors in the synagogue, but Jakie is more interested in jazz and ragtime music. Jakie leaves his New York home for good. After years on his own, now calling himself Jack Robin, he gets an important opportunity -- on Broadway.

For more about The Jazz Singer and the The Jazz Singer Blu-ray release, see the The Jazz Singer Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

The Jazz Singer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray of The Jazz Singer is consistent with the high level of care and attention lavished on the overall package. The source elements are either in pristine condition or have been expertly restored (I suspect a combination of both). The transfer expertly preserves the balance of blacks, grays and whites that is essential to bringing out the detail and retaining the compositions by cinematographer Hal Mohr (who would, many years later, create equally iconic black-and-white images of Marlon Brando in The Wild One). Grain patterns appear natural and undisturbed. Given the age of the film, the sharpness of the image is truly remarkable, but it is a sharpness that arises naturally from the original image and has not been achieved by digital enhancement.

The Jazz Singer is not a long film, and both the overture and exit music play over a static background. With most of the extras in standard definition, a BD-25 accommodates the film easily without compression issues.

(Note: Some instances of "jumps" and missing frames are to be expected in a film of this vintage.)


The Jazz Singer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The lossless DTS-HD MA 1.0 track permits reproduction of the full range of the original Vitaphone soundtrack, which is truly impressive in its clarity, fidelity and dynamic range. If not for the many practical limitations of the Vitaphone system (described in detail in the supplemental features), it might have remained in use much longer. One of the many virtues of this Blu-ray presentation is that even listeners who are not necessarily fans of Jolson's style of performance can enjoy The Jazz Singer for the sheer technical marvel of its sound reproduction.

(Note that The Jazz Singer is only partially a "talkie". The vocal recordings are limited to Jolson's performances. All other portions of the film are presented as a traditional silent film, complete with intertitles. However, the Vitaphone system was used to reproduce the film's entire musical track, which sounds better than the original tracks for most silent films of the era.)
