Throughout its long history, the Airmen of Note has regularly performed and recorded with the leading artists in the jazz world. In fact, the list of guest artists featured with the Note reads like a "who's who" of the jazz industry.
In 1990, the Note started its popular Jazz Heritage Series. These concerts featured internationally acclaimed jazz musicians who have joined forces with one of the best big bands in America--the Airmen of Note. (Please note: due to the government sequester, the Note was unable to perform this series in 2013. We hope to offer these concerts again in 2014.)
The dimension of radio broadcast was added in 2007, allowing listeners across the United States to enjoy these programs that previously could only be appreciated by live audiences in Washington, D.C. Now, we're pleased to offer the Jazz Heritage Series broadcast archives, giving jazz fans worldwide a chance to listen to past Jazz Heritage Series broadcasts via the Internet.

The Airmen of Note's Jazz Heritage Series, presented by The United States Air Force Band, provides a wonderful opportunity for the public to experience the Air Force's high level of professionalism through concerts featuring masters of the only American-born art form--jazz.
