GIVE A HOLIDAY GIFT…TO US: ANNOUNCING TWO, NEW INCREDIBLE CDs BY GENE KRUPA AND JO JONES!
You’ve all heard about the gift that “keeps on giving,” but perhaps you’ve never applied it to jazz. The fact is, America’s only original art form has been giving to the world for close to 100 years, and in our own small way, JazzLegends.com continues to make its contribution by discovering rare and vital audio and film footage of the legends of jazz and drumming.
We’re not yet fully recovered from last year’s unfortunate shut down, yet we still go to the ends of the earth to find incredible new material, offer it for $10, and provide shipping for free all over the world.
We hope to continue this through the holiday season and way beyond, but your help would make things much, much easier. Go to our Community Pages and make a donation. Every little bit will help us–and the world–to keep swingin!
BRAND NEW ON CD: THE ULTIMATE AND UNRELEASED JO JONES
Speaking of discoveries, our two new releases are nothing less than astonishing. “Papa” Jo Jones swings through some rare and timeless sessions with everyone from Teddy Wilson and Milt Buckner to Slam Stewart and believe it or not, George Benson, spanning the years 1963 to 1965.
BRAND NEW ON CD: THE INCREDIBLE GENE KRUPA BIG BAND LIVE IN CANADA, 1972
THE GREATEST–NEVER-BEFORE-HEARD–CONCERT IN HISTORY!
And in the astonishing department, the Gene Krupa Big Band in Canada from 1972, recorded live at the Canadian National Exhibition with Guido Basso’s men, is the most unbelievable Krupa recording I have heard in decades. When we speak of a “must have,” this one is it! Featuring several great Mulligan charts, a new “Drum Boogie” an out-of-this-world “Sing Sing Sing” and “Dark Eyes.” Highlighted by the playing of Guido Basso, Moe Kauffman, Ed Bickert and songstress Lynn McNeil.
Both of these CDs will be available as MP3’s shortly.
