Description: Cantor Rabinowitz is concerned and upset because his son Jakie shows so little interest in carrying on the family's traditions and heritage. For five generations, men in the family have been Cantors in the synagogue, but Jakie is more interested in jazz and ragtime music.

"17.1. Jazzlaulaja on klassinen esimerkki siitä, että ensimmäinen tai pioneerityö jossain ei tarkoita, että se olisi jotain erityisen hyvä. Tämähän oli siis niitä keskeisiä teoksia, jotka popularisoivat äänielokuvan joskus 20-luvun lopulla. Nykymakuun tämä on kamalan kankea ja tylsä tekele, jonka kaikkein vanhentuneinta kamaa taitaa olla valkoisten näyttelijöiden käyttämät huvittavat blackfacet. Todellisuudessa tällä leffalla on paljon muutakin kiinnostavaa "oheisvahinkoa"
