BIG BAND JUMP ARCHIVE DISCOVERY

We recently discovered a series of 88 MOMENTS IN MUSIC, hidden in the files for over a decade. Each of these mini-features were originally meant to be used by radio stations but now are being made available to former BBJ listeners.

Each five minute feature includes a forty or fifty second background story by Don Kennedy, followed by an original Big Band Era classic recording. We've joined these features together to form five studio quality CDs, each lasting over an hour and filled with anecdotes, musical history and original recordings. The variety is remarkable; the spoken content unique.

The music contained on each of the five CDs is noted below, but the music is only part of the enjoyment. Each selection comes with an entertaining dose of background information, originally meant to be heard only on selected radio stations. Now these five CDs containing a total of eighty-eight features are available to former BBJ listeners.
