Savoy Records is an American record label specializing in jazz, black gospel, soul/R&B, and blues. Starting in the mid-1940s, Savoy played an important part in popularizing the jazz subgenre of bebop. The man responsible for setting up,the label was Herman Lubinsky. During the 1950s with the advent if the LP savoy was able to reissue earlier material and newly recorded tracks for an ever growing audience.

The roster of names to be heard on the label during the 1950s is a who's who of the genre...

Charlie Parker; Coleman Hawkins; Kenny Clarke; Milt Jackson; Cannonball Adderley; Lester Young etc.etc.

The music here is a treat for jazz fans and in the same way as Not Now Music/ One Day Music has produced label compilations that enter the rock n roll era this set is of the bebop era with journeys into peripheral sounds such as the piano playing of Erroll Garner & clarinettist Pee Wee Russell & the Dixieland sounds of Wild Bill Davison. The label was able to present both earlier recordings along with current recordings hence this set features originals covering the wider period 1944-1956.

The set is most attractively designed with 8 small black and white images of artists featured and a liner note by Not Now regular Peter Gamble. Original record numbers are quoted as are original years of recording. The sound transfers are excellent across the 3 CDs and there is a second set to look out for...Jazz on Savoy, 54 Legendary Jazz Recordings, 1957-1962, NOT3CD137
