The Savory Recordings

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

The National Jazz Museum in Harlem recently acquired a trove of heretofore undiscovered jazz recordings known as the "Savory Recordings," which feature some of the biggest names in jazz: from Coleman Hawkins to Billie Holiday to Benny Goodman. Scholars and critics are already claiming that once these recordings are cleaned up, they will fundamentally alter jazz history. Director of the museum Loren Schoenberg will join us to discuss how he acquired the recordings. He'll be joined by Eugene Desavouret, the son of the recording genius, Mr. Savory, who will tell us about his father's storied recording past and why he kept the records locked up for so long.
