Seven Hills

Announcing The Ambassadors Jazztet debut CD, Seven Hills. Downloadable here are MP3 audio files and printable educational materials. At this time, this CD is available online only.

While most consider our two main exports to be freedom and democracy, America has also exported a treasure that many people overlook. Created in this nation and instilled with freedom of expression and democratic ideals, jazz is America's gift, a perfect musical description of our way of life. Broadcasting great Willis Conover once called jazz "the music of freedom," and his description still holds true.

The title track of this record refers to the Seven Hills of Staten Island, New York, a place where one can see the harbor of New York City, the skyline of Manhattan, Ellis Island, and our most profound icon of freedom, the Statue of Liberty. The Ambassadors Jazztet proudly presents Seven Hills, a reflection of jazz today and its ongoing relevance in our world.
