Where can you get the benefit of nearly 300 years of experience in jazz in just about an hour? The NEA YouTube channel, of course!

At the 2008 NEA Jazz Masters event, poet and jazz aficionado (and former NEA Deputy Chairman) A.B. Spellman moderated a panel with the 2008 NEA Jazz Masters, exploring their careers, influences, and stories from their collective 270 years in the jazz business. Panelists included Joe Wilder, Candido Camero, Quincy Jones, Gunther Schuller, and Tom McIntosh.

Visit the NEA Jazz Masters YouTube playlist to listen to the panel (in eight parts) or to watch interviews with individual NEA Jazz Masters, including Yusef Lateef, Annie Ross, and Bobby Hutcherson.
