Exploring Count Basie: The King of Swing Event
(Published: March 20, 2017)

TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 2017 AT 7:30PM- 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.

The Savory Collection was launched through a partnership between the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and Apple Music as a multi-volume collection featuring notable artists such as Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Coleman Hawkins, Fats Waller, and Lionel Hampton, among others. The collection represents a new and significant piece to jazz's evolution, with recovered music of legendary, golden-era artists sharing rare moments that truly define the musical landscape. There is no other comparable work in existence today that represents this timeless era. This extraordinary find is comparable to buried treasure in the music world. It is both an educational gem and an authentic record of our rich musical history.
