James Zimmerman, David Baker, Linda and James Moody, Lida Baker, and Ken Kimery

Following the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra's (SJMO) December 1, 2012 holiday concert, jazz maestro David Nathaniel Baker, Jr. concluded his tenure as SJMO Artistic and Musical Director to become Maestro Emeritus. The transition ends more than 20 years of leadership that took SJMO from grand idea to global recognition under Bakers' swinging style as bandleader, educator, composer, arranger, and jazz raconteur.
