Is there a DVD with classic jazz performances?

I'd like to show black-and-white footage of jazz performances during a party. Is there a DVD of classic jazz performances I can play, or is there some way I can make use of short youtube videos without having to sit at my computer and select different videos all night?

I'm planning a jazz-themed party, and think it would be great to have black-and-white footage of jazz performances playing on a screen to help set the scene. Most documentaries splice performance footage with interviews and other stuff, but I'm looking for uninterrupted performances. Sound quality isn't important as it will most likely be on mute in the background. Ideally there's some DVD out there that has black-and-white footage of a bunch of different performances, but I'd be happy with just one long-ish performance as well.
Does such a DVD exist? If not, how else can I make this happen? There are a lot of great clips
on Youtube, but I would really like to have something I don't have to babysit all night.
