Savory Collection Volume 4

#1 Post by straycat » Mon Dec 11, 2017 2:49 am

Announced for December 15th

Loving the samples for this one.

And then there's this:

Code: Select all

A major find are three extremely rare recordings by the immortal pianist Teddy Wilson’s 13-piece orchestra, virtually unrecorded in live performances. Recently discovered and to this point the only excellent high audio quality (superb, at that) recordings of this group, these 1939 items feature such masters as tenorman Ben Webster and trumpeters Doc Cheatham and Shorty Baker. With Wilson’s majestic virtuosity front and center, the band is structured for smooth transitions and elegant voicings, employing the rare – for its time – two trumpet/two trombone brass section creating a uniquely singing dynamic that is as graceful as its leader’s singular artistry and presence.

See Mosaic thread for more, but it seems that the first four volumes might also be released on CD by Mosaic in January.
