Other tracks apparently missing are:

In the Good Old Summertime

comments:
 this is all from live (not recorded) broadcast masters. It has had some talking/commentary
edited out of it, but the music is complete. Half of this was mastered on a Maxell UD reel,
the other half on Maxell UD cassette. I didn't know how long this show would run and often wonder,
why the heck didn't I just put it all on the reel? I suspect the reason for that was because it
ran longer than expected. I think there is 1 tape flip interruption of the recording, with just a
few seconds missing. It may also have been that I wanted to get the "heavies" (Benson, Tyner,
Hancock, Ron Carter, Corea, ect.) on reel.
 I may be half a century old and have 30 years of live recordings, but this is the only
time I have ever heard of, never mind heard, a White House Jazz Festival. Jimmy Carter is
the very first person to recieve a vote from me for our country's highest office (in 1976
presidential election), and for awhile this was a time of hope and healing for the USA.
One thing many folks may not know about this president, was that he shared a liking of
jazz music and a respect for it as a great national tradition. As far as I know, it only
happened this one time in our nation's history, honoring jazz music in the nation's capital
in a festival event. Don't know why, because this was a great time had by all, including then-
President Carter and 1st lady Ros Carter and included many of the greats of jazz, old and new.
This broadcast was live as it happened on NPR FM radio, a concert to celebrate great American
jazz, basically (I don't think it was a fundraiser, just a gathering for musical performances)
and beside being very historic, it had a bunch of fine and interesting performances, rare or
never before or again combinations of great jazz artists. This concert is a series of short sets,
with one allstar lineup after another and just a couple of weeks before the major league baseball
allstar game and the nation's 202nd birthday, so this was an upbeat event for the USA. This concert
was the allstar game for 1978 American jazz music. There are some very nice performances in here,
and music to please almost any kind of interest in American jazz. NPR did a few very interesting
live concert broadcasts in 1978, and I think 1977 was the beginning for the "Jazz Alive" series
that brought some of America's best jazz concerts to the radio. 1978 was a very good year, maybe
the best one, for this rather short-lived program, and some of the artists included in those shows
are included in this one. They also did a Chick Corea and Friends show of similar length to this
show in 1978 circa "Mad Hatter", and another very similar one in 1982 both of which I have already
posted.  
 Some of my older CD's are glitchy, but none of those have been upped by myself unless I'm able to
remaster and/or otherwise (preferably) get a glitch-free copy. We're very fussy about that at
Glasnost Radio Productions. If I find even 1 glitch, peg, gap or clip in one of my uploads I
remaster the whole set or show over again (if possible), so I'm glad it wasn't needed here, this
was a bit of a project. why do I do this? For the love of jazz, and in this case, getting to hear a
then-current U.S. president sing Salt Peanuts with Dizzy Gillespie. Because that and the rest of part
3 of this torrent is very short (8:31 for the last 2 tracks, it wouldn't quite fit on 2 discs), when
I remastered this to disc I put the part 3 with a Dizzy Gillespie 1977 broadcast (that seemed the most
logical place I had available for it) which is also from my FM master (same radio station source too,
WBUR). I was going to post that with this, instead I'm posting them seperately Dizzy's up already) so if
you wish to do as I did, you can, and put the last 2 tracks of this fine show (which include Gillespie)
with the full set by Dizzy in Cambridge from 1977.
 If Ronald Reagan was the "great communicator" (not, more like the Great Repressor II, following up
Nixon's agenda), he sure wasn't the great jazz appreciator, because when he became U.S. President, that
was the end of White House Jazz Festivals. (and Jazz Alive broadcasts. NOT a coincidence at all there on
both counts, either). Jazz would never be the same again. this comes from a time before the atomic bomb
and a teflon president was dropped on what was once the hope of real American dreams, now replaced by
something much more desperate and depressing than hopeful.
Maybe if we get President Obama, he will bring this event BACK to current reality, where it BELONGS.
If we get (stuck with) John McCain, fuggetaboutit, it may never happen again.
Do not sell this recording.
Trade freely and losslessly.
share the spirit of American jazz.
