The Jubilee Shows No. 55 & 200 are two complete shows taken from a popular feature on U.S. Armed Forces Radio which ran from 1942 onwards. Each radio show typically featured a swing band, a guest vocalist, and sometimes a comedy sketch. This CD contains two shows, featuring Jazz legends Teddy Wilson, Bobby Sherwood, and Count Basie in 21 tracks, reissued for the new millennium.
Bill “Count” Basie (1904-1984) was an American pianist and bandleader, and one of the most important musicians of the swing era. His big band remained popular for over 50 years, making it one of the most successful orchestras of all time.
