Longtime ITA members frequently comment and offer compliments about the evolution of the organization’s printed materials over the years. On the occasion of ITA’s 40th anniversary, it seems appropriate to retrace this evolution and acknowledge those who helped bring us to our “slick” Journal of today.

The ITA Journal has been in production since 1971 with a series of newsletters printed from 1973 to 1980. Published quarterly since 1982, it is edited by Diane Drexler and includes scholarly articles, trombone news, job announcements, and literature and record reviews.
