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.

"I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you for your quality customer service. Buying things off of the internet is still a little nerve-wracking for me and can seem very impersonal, but you guys have been awesome, I appreciate your quick responses to the emails and the guitar sounds great! I would have no problem in making future purchases through you and would recommend your service to others."

"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"
