After World War II, Voice of America radio broadcasts by Leonard Feather and Willis Conover helped to lay the foundation for subsequent tours. U.S. State Department sponsored the tours that sent America's Jazz Ambassadors around the world. They travelled from 1955 to the '70s and visited such different places as the Soviet Union, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, India, Thailand, Burma, Pakistan, Philippines, Ceylon, Japan, Ghana, Cameroon, Congo, Egypt, Senegal, Nigeria, Morocco, Kenya, Chile, Argentina and Europe. Everywhere they played they were very well received and did a fantastic job as "Good Will Jazz Ambassadors".

The Jam Session CD contains music with some of the Ambassadors:

Louis Armstrong And His All Stars: Someday You Will Be Sorry; When The Saints Go Marching In
Dave Brubeck Quartet: The Golden Horn; Thank You
Benny Carter Quartet: Blue Star; Summer Serenade
Duke Ellington And His Famous Orchestra: Perdido; Things Ain’t What They Used To Be
Dizzy Gillespie And His Orchestra: Cool Breeze; Mantecca
Woody Herman And His Orchestra: Sleepy Serenade; Starlight Souvenirs
Clark Terry & His Orchestra feat. Paul Gonsalves: Blues For The Champ Of Champs; Daniel’s Blues.
