From the liner notes...

In 2010, the Airmen of Note celebrated 60 years as
the premier jazz ensemble of the United States Air
Force.  The band's remarkable success in community
outreach and troop morale initiatives has been enabled
by generations of world-class jazz performers,
composers and arrangers.

This recording presents highlights from these 60
remarkable years.
