Founded and directed by Chuck Israels, the National Jazz Ensemble with an effort produced a repertory orchestra to play classic records from the full array of jazz history. It performed everything from Jelly Roll Morton's “Black Bottom Stomp” through Horace Silver's “Room 608”, from early Ellington through Bill Evans. It raised all of the problems implied by jazz repertory and except for its approach to the New Orleans classics, faced them in provocative and fruitful ways. It therefore paved the way for a musical activity which will be a valuable part of the future of jazz music in America.
