All Set was commissioned by the 1957 Brandeis University Creative Arts Festival, which in that year was a jazz festival. It was premiered there by the Bill Evans Orchestra in a performance that was recorded and released on a Columbia Records LP in 1963. The title is a pun referring to the all-combinatorial twelve-tone series Babbitt used in composing the work. The published score is dedicated to Gunther Schuller. Here, Charles Peltz leads the NEC Wind Ensemble in NEC's Jordan Hall, March 6, 2014.

New England Conservatory hosted the Eastern Division Conference of the College Band Directors National Association, which ran from March 6 to 8, 2014. The conference centered on the theme of "Crossing Over" and featured the many different kinds of music we now perform, influenced by jazz, world, ethnic, techno, pop, fusion—"it runs the gamut."

As New England Conservatory President, Gunther Schuller steered NEC through one of the most turbulent and formative decades of American and Conservatory history, beginning with NEC’s centennial year. During his tenure as President from 1967–1977, as the Western world rocked to the rhythms of social upheaval and burgeoning youth culture, Schuller formalized NEC's commitment to jazz by establishing the first fully accredited jazz studies program at a music conservatory. Schuller hired Carl Atkins as founding chair of the department, and worked with Atkins to develop the first curriculum and secure such legendary faculty as Jaki Byard and George Russell. Shortly thereafter, he instituted the Third Stream department (which lives on today as Contemporary Improvisation) to explore the regions where the two musical "streams" of classical and jazz meet and mingle, and hired the iconic Ran Blake to be its chair.
