REGINALD FORESYTHE

THE NEW MUSIC OF REGINALD FORESYTHE

Description:
Extensive research by Willem Breuker has resulted in the CD release of the work by the British, almost forgotten composer/pianist, Reginald Foresythe 1907 1958.  English jazz historian Val Wilmer and Dutch jazz historian Herman Openneer came up with the historical photographic material and liner notes. All the recordings are from the period 1933 1945 and are performed by Foresythe's own orchestra as well as by the orchestras of Earl Hines, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Benny Goodman and Paul Whiteman. The original 78 rpm records were restored by Harry Coster.
