The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra Live, lead by Artistic and Musical Director Dr. David Baker, set out to explore, present, promote, and perpetuate the historical legacy of jazz. The orchestra in-residence at the National Museum of American History, celebrated "Jazz Appreciation Month" at Manchester Craftsmen's Guild in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, giving five performances that were consolidated into this exclusive DVD. Special features include song introductions by internationally famous composer, conductor, performer, author, and educator, Dr. David Baker.

MCG Jazz's (Manchester Craftsman's Guild) mission is to preserve, present and promote jazz. Since 1987, MCG Jazz has promoted the artistry of this great American art form through its multiple Grammy-award winning record label and its world-renowned concert series. Now Alfred Publishing and MCG Jazz are proud to bring the MCG Jazz experience to a wider audience through this innovative series of performance and master class DVDs.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! Received the guitar yesterday afternoon, only 1 day after it shipped UPS ground. It's everything as described and more. Pestered you a couple of times with questions about my order and you were gracious, down to earth, and quick to respond. We can't wait to see our Granddaughter's face when she opens this gift. Would highly recommend your site to anyone."
