1940's NYC jazz
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 01/25/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"JAZZ LEGENDS is a brief but solid collection by five artists who cut sides for New York City's APOLLO records in the 1940's. The CD audio quality is clear and powerful; source material very clean. Includes details on each performer, session personnel and dates. A few "firsts" contained here:

1944's "Woody'n You" is considered the first ever bop recording-- features Dizzy Gillespie on tenor sax.
The two Dinah Washington sides were made right after she left Lionel Hampton's band, in 1945. Her first solo work.
Willis Jackson was famous for playing above-the-staff squeals. Jackson's two tracks here are his earliest solo efforts. He was a member of Cootie Williams' unit previously.
