"I am very impressed with what Aric Schneller and his students at SHSU are doing to foster jazz in Huntsville, and the Houston region of Texas. It's an excellent program and an outstanding festival. I'm pleased to have this opportunity of a long-term relationship with Sam Houston State University."
