	"It's a distinct pleasure for us at Fidelity to support the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, one of the many high notes of the Boston Symphony Orchestra's summer session at Tanglewood," said Robert L. Reynolds, Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer of Fidelity Investments.  "Considered by many to be the most American of art forms, jazz perfectly reflects the boundless creativity, innovation and energy of the American spirit. We're proud to be able to do our part to make this festival possible, and we hope that our ongoing commitment to the BSO and this consistently outstanding event ensures that the sound of jazz will echo across the Berkshires and beyond for years to come."

	This year's festival opens Friday, September 3, at 8 pm with performances by Brazilian born, Grammy nominated pianist, Eliane Elias and Latin salsa king, Eddie Palmieri and La Perfecta II in Seiji Ozawa Hall.  The program will be broadcast live on WGBH Radio, Boston, WBGO Radio, Newark, and fifteen other public radio stations across the country.
