A Conversation on the Historical Savory Collection Archive Featuring Rare Recordings by Count Basie and Other Greats
In conjunction with the GRAMMY Museum’s exhibit Count Basie: The King Of Swing (closing April 16), the Museum is thrilled to present an intimate conversation on the King Of Swing and the recent release of The Savory Collection — an extraordinary and unique historical archive featuring swing-era artists such as Basie in their prime performing inspired and extended versions of never-before-heard material boasting superior sound quality. Participating in the conversation will be Loren Schoenberg, Founding Director and Senior Scholar of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem; Darryl Porter, IP and Memorabilia Manager for Count Basie Trust; Gregg Field, Count Basie drummer and previous owner/head of Concord Music, and veteran jazz journalist Scott Yanow. Bubba Jackson of KJAZZ will moderate the conversation.
