Selected by Dan Morgenstern from the Archives of the New Jersey Jazz Society

It's been decades since the New Jersey Jazz Society entrusted its precious early tapes to the Institute of Jazz Studies. While we were happy to provide a safe and protective environment, it was a bit frustrating not to be able to share the not inconsiderable amount of great music with the world. To say that we«re off to a good start would be an understatement. One would be hard put to find a better performance by Soprano Summit than the one contained herein Ð when I had the pleasure of seeing Bob Wilber at the Benny Carter Centennial celebration at Lincoln Center, his first words, after we hugged, were to ask if I had heard it, and if I agreed that it was extraordinary. There is also a notable encounter between Ruby Braff and Bob Wilber and a relaxed and inspired 1979 set by the Blue Three, which is a great find and a precious addition to their recorded legacy. From the album notes by Dan Morgenstern, Director of the Rutgers Institute of Jazz Studies.
