Jazz and the NSA

I came across an interesting entry in a listing of videotapes (pdf) produced by the National Security Agency, the largest of the US intelligence agencies, titled “Jazz in the USSR.” Running just over 46 minutes long and carrying a “For Official Use Only” classification, the 1985 program is described as a survey of jazz in the Soviet Union.

I wonder if this was made by some NSA employee/jazz fan attempting to make their job more fun or if there is more to it than that?
