    Description

    After World War II, Voice of America radio broadcasts by Leonard Feather and Willis Conover helped to lay the foundation for subsequent tours. U.S. State Department sponsored the tours that sent America’s JAZZ AM-BASSADORS around the world. They travelled from 1955 to the 70’s and visited such different places as the Soviet Union, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, India, Thailand, Burma, Pakistan, Philippines, Ceylon, Japan, Ghana, Cameroon, Congo, Egypt, Senegal, Nigeria, Morocco, Kenya, Chile, Argentina and Europe. Everywhere they played they were very well received and did a fantastic job as "Good Will Jazz Ambassadors" The Jam Session CD contains music with some of the Ambassadors: LOUIS ARMSTRONG AND HIS ALL STARS/ Someday You Will Be Sorry/When The Saints Go Marching In DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET/The Golden Horn/Thank You BENNY CARTER QUARTET/Blue Star/Summer Serenade DUKE ELLINGTON AND HIS FAMOUS ORCHESTRA/Perdido/Thing Ain’t What They Used To Be DIZZY GILLESPIE AND HIS ORCHESTRA/Cool Breeze/Mantecca WOODY HERMAN AND HIS ORCHESTRA/Sleepy Serenade/Starlight Souvenirs CLARK TERRY & HIS ORCHESTRA feat.
