THE RED NORVO COLLECTION, 1933-60
Known as "Mr. Swing," Red Norvo was an unusual figure in early jazz, being an exponent of the xylophone and marimba (and later the vibraphone), which were not regular features in jazz ensembles of the time. Collected here are 40 tracks encompassing a period of close to four decades of his early career, featuring collaborations with Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Dizzy Gillespie, and others. Two CDs.
