In January of 1967, Oliver Nelson wrote and conducted the music to one of his most ambitious albums, The Kennedy Dream for the Impulse label. The album received mixed reviews in the music press, but has subsequently grown in stature due to the quality of the music. Nelson himself had high regard for this album; he would tell colleagues that he wanted to write more ambitious music (he'd studied composition with Elliott Carter, and would study with George Tremblay in L.A.), and this was certainly a great opportunity for him. This eight movement composition and recording was one of the last projects Nelson completed before moving out to Los Angeles.

This complete publication has been prepared from the original scores and parts and has been thoroughly checked for note errors. In addition, dynamics and articulations have been included as-recorded.
