Bill Savory’s treasure trove

Never before heard Count Basie Orchestra gems

 

How they were finally discovered 

We pay another visit to Jim Eigo’s Original Vinyl Records. 

This time Scott Wenzel of Mosaic  Records shares the details of an  amazing jazz archeological discovery. 

Never before heard recordings of The Count Basie Orchestra with Lester Young, Ella Fitzgerald, Chick Webb, Teddy Wilson, Coleman Hawkins, Lionel Hampton, Albert Ammons, Bobby Hackett, Benny Carter, and more.

Musician and recording engineer Bill Savory captures hundreds of hours of top-shelf music off the air.

Until recently, the existence of there recordings as just a rumor.
