The Paul Winter Sextet emerged in Chicago during Paul’s years at Northwestern University. After winning the 1961 Intercollegiate Jazz Festival, the band was signed to Columbia Records by legendary producer John Hammond. In 1962, on recommendation from Festival judges Dizzy Gillespie and Hammond, the Sextet was sent by the State Department on a six-month tour of 23 countries of Latin America. The success of this tour led to an invitation from First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy to play at the White House. The Sextet’s performance in the East Room on November 19, 1962, happened to be the first-ever jazz concert in the White House.With some personnel changes, the Sextet continued to tour and record throughout 1963, and were making their final album that November at the time of of President Kennedy’s assassination. Numbed by that tragedy, and discouraged by what felt like the end of that optimistic era, the Sextet soon disbanded and members went their separate ways.
