COMMENTS:        The Savory Collection  was launched through a partnership between the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and Apple Music as a multi-volume collection featuring notable artists such as Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Coleman Hawkins, Fats Waller, and Lionel Hampton, among others. The collection represents a new and significant piece to jazz’s evolution, with recovered music of legendary, golden-era artists sharing rare moments that truly define the musical landscape. There is no other comparable work in existence today that represents this timeless era. This extraordinary find is comparable to buried treasure in the music world. It is both an educational gem and an authentic record of our rich musical history.

 The National Jazz Museum is a proud Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, with the mission to preserve, promote and present jazz by inspiring knowledge, appreciation and the celebration of jazz locally, nationally and internationally.
