Smithsonian Magazine Profiles Haase '71, "Ambassador of Jazz"

The Smithsonian Magazine ran an article in its September 2010 edition about John Hasse '71, who serves as a music curator at the Smithsonian Museum and whose unofficial title is "America’s unofficial jazz ambassador-at-large." The article tells about Hasse's founding of Jazz Appreciation Month, his work as a music curator at the National Museum of American History and that he recently teamed with an international panel of experts for the upcoming release of Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology, a six-CD, 111-track set that reconceives, updates and expands the 1973 Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz.
