The Original American Decca Recordings
L’orchestra-mito.

Durante gli anni della Grande Depressione, una sola città in tutti gli Stati Uniti riusciva a tenere alto il vessillo del jazz: Kansas City. Patria di William Basie, detto “Count”, che fondò un’orchestra da sogno che detterà legge per decenni, e risulterà la più celebrata big band della Swing Era. Le incisioni realizzate fino allo scoppio della Seconda Guerra
Mondiale entreranno nel mito: nelle file militavano i sassofonisti Lester Young e Hershel Evans (impegnati in una sorta di continuo duello), i trombettisti Harry Edison e Buck Clayton, i cantanti Jimmy Rushing e Helen Humes, e la più perfetta macchina da swing mai vista: la “All American Rhythm Section”, composta da Basie, dal chitarrista Freddie Green, dal contrabbasso di Walter Page e da Jo Jones alla batteria.
Ecco l’integrale delle incisioni Decca di quella meravigliosa orchestra, complete del libretto originale di 32 pagine dell’edizione del 1992.
