From Billboard - July 29, 1978: ABC's Impulse line has bowed a nine volume "Dedication Series" of modern jazz sessions recalling blowing dates from 1956 through 1972. Michael Cuscuna has put the series together, extracting cuts produced originally by such as Creed Taylor, Bob Thiele, Stewart Levine and Caiphus Semenya

The series is a retrospective peek at mainly East Coast jazzsters who have retained their solid position within the jazz community. No fly-by-night acts here.

The two disk LPs (gatefold) have a uniform black jacket and color illustration of the headlining artist.
