Notes by Dan Morgenstern,
Director of the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers University

"Not since the heyday of Jazz at the Philharmonic has there been a jazz talent pool - indeed, a multitude of stars - to compare with the thirty here assembled under the banner of the happily reconstituted Statesmen of Jazz, and this marvellous cast, folks, ain't even all the Statesmen!"

About The Statesmen of Jazz
The Statesmen of Jazz, Inc. is a non profit, corporation, originally organized in 1994 as a pilot program under the sponsorship of the American Federation of Jazz Societies and later incorporated as a separate non-profit corporation. The purpose of the Statesmen of Jazz is to utilize the skills of master musicians possessing the qualities of jazz statesmen, whose creative achievements have contributed to the ever-evolving new horizons of jazz. All of the Statesmen are musicians who have outstanding careers in music, are able to perform brilliantly and who have a keen interest in perpetuating jazz traditions through their performances at concerts and festivals and at clinics accompanying those performances. Each performance by the Statesmen is drawn from an ensemble pool of these musicians, with the personnel varying depending upon and availability in the area where the performance is scheduled.
