The documentary series Icons Among Us: Jazz in the Present Tense continues to review the history of jazz with a second episode devoted to the latest trends in the genre. Under the theme "12 notes in real time", the second episode in the series looks into the role of contemporary jazz musicians and modern trends in a musical genre that has evolved constantly since its emergence. The series is based on interviews with prominent performers such as Diane Reeves, Wayne Shorter, Dave Douglas, Miguel Zenón, John Scofield and Esperanza Spalding, as well as musical fragments from a large number of those taking part in the documentary, most of whom, as the series' title suggests, have become icons of music and popular culture.
