Fantastic! Thanks!

I just noticed that a follow-up story states that Savory recorded a live Coleman Hawkins club version of "Body and Soul" that's twice as long as the classic he recorded in 1939.

Wow, makes you wonder what else is in there . . .

It's a work in progress, so patience is advised.

Now where is the stuff hiding that old Tom Dorsey recorded, featuring Charley Patton and Willie Brown at a Barbecue, and later showcasing a new cat called Robert Johnson  ;)

(hey, at least it's allowed to dream about this)

It's awesome that these things keep showing up, there can never be "too much" great music. I just don't hope this turns into a fight about money (and compared to old Blues recordings where the target audience is tiny, there are so many Jazz aficionados worldwide that money could be made with this) and the collection remains in its current "never heard" state.

The Savory collection is brilliant; two CD's worth of original Basie band, for example - what a find, not to mention the Coleman Hawkins lengthy "Body & Soul". Jazz, though. but beautiful nonetheless.
