Jazz Recordings found
Posted in Pop Culture by Peter W. Schramm
This is a couple of days old, but I just noticed that a great discovery of Jazz recordings has been made: The Savory Collection consists of 975 discs with recordings of live
performances broadcast by radio stations in the late 1930s, the height
of the swing era, and into 1940. Recorded by audio engineer William
Savory, the discs feature Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Count Basie,
Billie Holiday, Fats Waller, Bunny Berigan and Lester Young, playing in
the relaxed setting of a nightclub or ballroom, rather than the
confines of a recording studio, where songs could not exceed three
minutes in length. The quality of the music, therefore, is superb. There are a half-dozen examples you can listen to; especially note the Waller, Armstrong, Tegarden improvisation at bottom right hand corner. Sweet. Here is the longer story
on the discovery.

The unsung Hershel Evans., who like Charlie Christian, died far too soon. Teddy Wilson on harpsicord! Mr. Teagarden. Extended 40s era cuts from Coleman Hawkins...must...stop...typing...drool running all over the keyboard!
