"Jimmy Lunceford was buried here in Memphis. The spot he occupies should have something of a special significance...He took a group of relatively unsophisticated Memphis colored boys and welded them into an organization which scaled the heights of musical eminence...He presented something new in the way of musical presentations by Negro orchestras. Lunceford and many others like him chose to remain at home, and with their people. [His death] should have meaning in inspiration and guidance to others. If we permit it, Lunceford's burial in Memphis can mean this."

--Legendary Memphis Educator And Syndicated Columnist Nat D. Williams

2018 Jimmie Lunceford Jamboree Festival Kickoff


"He would come over to the school each and every time he would play Memphis. His band would perform for the [Manassas] student body, and our band, the Little Rhythm Bombers, would play for him. This is where most of us, as students, saw him. He would bring the big band over to Manassas and perform." 

--Memphis Music Great, Educator & Manassas Rhythm Bomber Emerson Able, Jr.
