The National Jazz Museum in Harlem released the third album of the Savory Collection with live, never-before-heard recordings by many Jazz Greats.
The album is available exclusively on Apple Music and iTunes.
The Savory Collection, Vol. 3 tells the story of the Swing Era through the artists who made it great.
Love early rock n’ roll? Albert Ammons and John Kirby take us to its beginnings with two rollicking boogie-woogies.
Love hot jazz? Chick Webb and Roy Eldridge pair up to the point of combustion.
Love a great Hollywood soundtrack? We bring you “The King,” Benny Carter, just before he set off on a vibrant career in movie music.
Love classical music? Bassist John Kirby and his sextet marry classical conventions with the spirit of Duke Ellington and a healthy dose of humor.
At the heart of the collection is a previously unknown jam session featuring the great musical friendship of Fats Waller and Jack Teagarden. Clarinetist Pee Wee Russell and tenor saxophonist Bud Freeman add to the magic with an originality that is second to none.
Once again, Bill Savory’s exquisite taste in music has afforded us the rare chance to revel in some of the greatest jazz sounds, music that until now, was lost to the ages.
