Tube Notes

By Mike Hughes

MUST-SEE: "Jazz" finale, 9 p.m., PBS. As jazz staggered in the rock era people felt it might fade. Miles Davis embraced rock and created a fusion sound. Cecil Taylor’s music was so complex he suggested people study it in advance. Things were spinning, splintering. Then, remarkably, jazz returned to its roots. Trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and his brother saxophonist Branford Marsalis grew up in New Orleans, where jazz began, and thrust jazz back to the mainstream. If anything, the series understates the brothers’ role. It may be overcompensating because Wynton is its chief commentator. Still, the brothers give "Jazz" a happy ending. Then comes the closing montage, a wonderful ending to a great series.

"Living Edens," 8 p.m., PBS. Letting nature take its course can be tough. Naturalists reintroduced wolves to Yellowstone National Park, then considered the result a triumph. The previous inhabitants, who find themselves stalked, may not share that opinion. This grisly hour watches a pack of wolves devour an elk, a coyote, even a newborn buffalo.

"One Kill," 8 p.m., CBS. Anne Heche stars in the true story of a Marine who’s charged with murdering the officer with whom she’d had an affair.

"Once and Again," 9 p.m., ABC. The kids get the focus with Edward Zwick — one of the show’s producers — returning as Jessie’s therapist.
