Today we listen to recordings from the 1930s and 1940s, made by small jazz groups in the studios of several independent jazz labels in New York. These labels, among them the Commodore, Keynote and Blue Note labels, were home to many of the fine musicians around at the time. This treasury comprises recordings, numbering in the thousands, that were all performed by these excellent small jazz groups they remain a wonderful example of their art that we continue to enjoy years later — as we often do on IHTSB. Today’s show is another episode celebrating their work in these sessions. We’ll hear some familiar names and some favourite songs, all combining to produce a wonderful listening experience!
