about

The songs we grow up with stick with us. We are drawn to them in a powerful way that lingers throughout our lives. This recording presents contemporary jazz reinventions of songs that shaped the experiences of graduates from the founding of U.S. Air Force Academy in 1955 to the present. They served our nation with honor, and so we honor them. They are “The Long Blue Line.”
