From the back cover: The music heard on this recording was played before an audience at Town Hall in New York during June, 1945. The musicians were a mixed group, some of whom even then ranked high on anyone's list of jazz "greats," and others who were new-comers at the time but would become the most influential instrumentalists of the next decade.

An article found in the March 17 issue of Billboard suggests that the "jazz concert" title was taken from an idea for a "gimmick" introduced by Bill Randle who promoted the "jazz concert" idea at Detroit's WJLB. Plans are to expand the jazz concert idea all over the Middle West with the possibility of bringing in to New England too. If latter develops, a lot of top musikers (jazz groups) now on the Stem will be able to use their days off to take a couple of hours run and collect some nice dough for their trouble
