Synopsis

Album Description
Never before released radio transcriptions by jazz's greatest pianist, recorded for KHJ (Los Angeles) in 1940. The discovery of these milestone recordings may be the single most important contribution to jazz in decades. One of the goals of Memphis Archives is to preserve our rich American musical heritage by making these historical recordings available. Without this concern, thousands of songs from the dawn of the recording industry would be lost forever. By purchasing this CD, you have become part of this effort to preserve our musical heritage for future generations.
