Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
NBC's "Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street" was a weekly radio jam session of the 1940s, with two fine house bands backing guest soloists who were the leading exponents of jazz. Most commercially released samples of the program showcase vocalist Dinah Shore at the expense of the resident orchestras, but this CD includes two complete broadcasts, with equal emphasis on the vocals, the guest stars, the two bands, and the commentary between tunes. Most of the commentary pokes fun at highbrow symphony broadcasts, so you'll hear emcee Gene Hamilton peppering the deliberately elaborate text with jazz-musician slang. Jazz fans will especially enjoy W. C. Handy in person, playing trumpet on his own "St. Louis Blues" with Henry Levine's eight-piece dixieland crew enthusiastically riding him home. Both Levine's "Barefooted Philharmonic" and Paul Laval's "Woodwindy Ten" offer excellent performances, with contributions by guest artist Benny Carter. (Levine's band does "When My Sugar Walks Down the Street" and really sells it.) This CD is a real change of pace for big-band collectors and vintage-radio fans. Sound fidelity is excellent.

It's great to see a second CD of the popular NBC Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street! Although done with some tongue in check concerning classic music, Henry Levine, Dinah Shore, and Benny Carter make this an album worth having. The music may be tightly arranged, but it's still an attempt to bring this good jazz to national public awareness. Dinah is super, as is Lena Horne (on the first CD). I hope more programs will be released!

I'm pretty sure that this is one of two remaining recordings of the Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street. This CD is a real piece of music history and is a blast to listen to.
