COLLECTOR'S ITEM - a treasure trove of rare jazz gems and priceless performances. Three GrandMasters of Jazz, backed by the Swing Fever band, joined by internationally reknowned vocalist Jackie Ryan. GRAMMY winner & NEA Jazz Master trumpeter CLARK TERRY (American Jazz Hall of Fame, winner of 250+ major awards including the NARAS President's Merit Award), GRAMMY nominee & NEA Jazz Master clarinetist BUDDY DeFRANCO (American Jazz Hall of Fame, winner of 20 DownBeat polls, 16 Playboy All-Stars Awards), and DownBeat's #1 Vibraphonist for 5 years TERRY GIBBS (American Jazz Hall of Fame, ASCAP Jazz Wall of Fame) - join SWING FEVER - San Francisco's preeminent swing band for 35 years - in this lusciously packaged Collector's Edition. The collection is both an aural and a visual treat - ranging from scorching swing classics to sizzling bebop to sultry ballads - several sung by guest vocalist and featured CNN TV en Español artist JACKIE RYAN early in her career (three subsequent back-to-back chart-topping CDs of her own have all been number one Jazz CDs nationwide - with 4-star reviews from AMG and DownBeat). Presented in a format that echoes the live radio broadcasts of jazz's Golden Age - the audio CD is punctuated by colorful insider anecdotes by the three GrandMasters themselves - war stories from jazz trenches which work their way seamlessly into and around both the 14 songs found on the audio CD and the additional songs on the bonus DVDs. GrandMasters of Jazz - Swing Fever's small tribute to these three giants of jazz.
