The Legacy of Celebrated Jazz Label Savoy Records Now Presented on a Multi-Disc Set

The set includes greats like Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, and others

According to Universal Music’s official site, Craft Recordings is coming up with an all new collection that chronicles the groundbreaking era of bebop (or bop) music as presented by legendary label Savoy Records.

This set represents an essential introduction to this vital period in jazz music and is titled The Birth of Bop: The Savoy 10-Inch LP Collection. It features 30 choice cuts from many of the genre’s pioneers, including Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, Milt Jackson, Allen Eager, Fats Navarro, and more.

According to the site “spanning 1944 to 1949, these landmark recordings were instrumental in the development of modern jazz and found young artists exploring the boundaries of the genre at a time when swing music was the dominant sound and big bands ruled the airwaves.”

The Birth of Bop will be released in several formats, including a vinyl box set, featuring five 10-inch LPs, a 2-CD format, and digital editions on February 10. Each track in the collection has been freshly restored and remastered.
