NPR: Once The Stuff Of Jazz Legend, 1930s Recordings Are Finally Out

In 1938, Ella Fitzgerald sang her first big hit, “A-Tisket, A-Tasket,” for a national audience on CBS Radio. Now, a global audience has access to this performance again — thanks to the discovery and restoration of the Savory Collection, a legendary private trove of nearly 1,000 recordings that haven’t been heard by the general public since the 1930s. The National Jazz Museum in Harlem acquired them in 2010, and today they’re beginning to make their way to a new generation of jazz fans.

The collection is an incredible treat for jazz fans. It’s only available on iTunes, though.
