Description

These two live 'Jubilee' radio shows were made in 1943 specifically to entertain the U.S. military during World War II, and have never before been released on CD. The first show features Louis Armstrong and his big band, plus the Red Callender Trio; the second show features the Count Basie Big Band and the Art Tatum Trio. The repertoire on this 19-track CD consists mainly of the greatest popular swing and trad-jazz hits of these two top big bands. The Count Basie Band features four great stars: Harry "Sweets" Edison and Snooky Young on trumpet, Don Byas on tenor sax, and Jimmy Rushing on vocals. One of the high points of the entire CD is Art Tatum's rendition of "Exactly Like You". These Jubilee shows give today's listener a valuable sampling of the swing-oriented black entertainment world of the mid-1940s. After decades of having these performances only available in piecemeal fashion, usually on bootleg LP's with inferior sound, it is a joy to have the opportunity to hear this timeless music as if it were being broadcast on the radio today.
