CHU BERRY - MOSAIC: CLASSIC COLUMBIA AND VICTOR SESSIONS 7CD BOX SET [BRAND NEW]. BRAND NEW SEALED - 7 CD BOX SET OOP. This is a comprehensive collection with countless pivotal sessions.
It features 203 separate recordings on seven CDs and collects both the sessions led by Chu Berry and other sessions where he contributed significantly as a sideman. You can study his remarkable surefootedness as a soloist; remember an era where evolution in the music was running rampant and Chu Berry's tenor saxophone was one of the things making it run.
The set includes: o Teddy Wilson's late-30s chamber recordings for Brunswick that are sheer heaven o The jazz side of Cab Calloway featuring his unique musical talents o The incredible recording debut by Roy Eldridge o Key recordings by Fletcher Henderson o One of the greatest sessions ever by trumpeter Henry "Red" Allen o The final recording session by the incomparable Bessie Smith o A session led by Gene Krupa with Benny Goodman and members of the Fletcher Henderson band. Our research turned up a dozen alternate takes, never released in any format but all included here. To find some of the rest today, you'd have to amass a collection of French Classics CDs: a series by RCA released in France; whole box sets by Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith; and various Sony CD releases of the Cab Calloway recordings. Listening to these recordings, there's no mistaking his influence on Charlie Parker (who named his first son for Berry) and every other bebopper, John Coltrane, and a host of other saxophonists today who may not even know from whom the ideas originated.The item "CHU BERRY MOSAIC CLASSIC COLUMBIA AND VICTOR SESSIONS 7CD BOX SET BRAND NEW" is in sale since Wednesday, May 30, 2018.
