6 CDs Box with 108 tracks

"The Savory Collection" - 6 CDs with 108 tracks locked away for more than 70 years and finally available on CD for the very first time anywhere. The recordings are from the personal collection of Bill Savory, a quirky and secretive studio engineer in New York whose day job in the late 1930s and early 1940s was transcribing radio broadcasts for foreign distribution, and whose nighttime passion was turning on the disc recorders to pull in and preserve what was happening in the clubs of New York City and other cities.

It contains " Thirteen tracks from the original, under-rated John Kirby sextet featuring some of the finest soloists of the day: Buster Bailey, Charlie Shavers, Russell Procope, Billy Kyle and O'Neill Spencer. Chick Webb, Ella Fitzgerald and Roy Eldridge as guest stars on the CBS radio hit of the day "The Saturday Night Swing Club". -Broadcasts from the legendary Café Society, Famous Door, Panther Room, Onyx Club and regularly scheduled radio programs with a cream of jazz stars. Joe Sullivan improvising at the piano solo, during a private party. A chance for him to loosen up, stretch out, and experiment. And an unknown version of "Body and Soul" by Coleman Hawkins, recorded live just seven months after his earth-shattering recording in 1939 that most listeners believe laid down an entirely new point of view about jazz soloing. As important as that original recording was, this newly-found version might be EVEN BETTER. A wealth of classic Count Basie live when Lester Young, Herschel Evans and were with that classic, trendsetting orchestra making jazz and big band

  • IN ADDITION TO THE TRACKS LISTED ABOVE, YOU CAN FIND THESE INCREDIBLE GIFTS
  • -The Martin Block Jam Sessions from WNEW - featuring extended jams featuring Lionel Hampton with Herschel Evans, the tenor saxophone player cut down by heart disease just a month after this recording; Joe Marsala with Bobby Hackett, Joe Bushkin and others; Jack Teagarden playing "Jeepers Creepers" (a song just one month old); and a Fats Waller jam with Teagarden, Pee Wee Russell, Eddie Condon, Bud Freeman, and Charlie Shavers that is the essence of joyful expression.
  • -Glenn Miller doing "Tuxedo Junction" - a song he had performed only once before live. One day later, they'd be in the studio cutting the legendary track we all know on Bluebird.
  • -A Randall's Island jazz festival from May of 1938 that came before Newport or anything else. The festival went on for hours in front of 23,000 fans. It was thought to be entirely lost. Savory recorded just four titles by Basie and one by Stuff Smith.
