Jukebox Hits 1941-1951
Styles: Jazz, Jukebox Hits, R&B
Catalogue Number: ACMCD4021
This is another release in our Jukebox Hits series which offers the American Juke Box/Harlem Hit Parade/Race Record/ Rhythm & Blues chart hits by a selection of the biggest stars of the 1940s and 1950s swing, jazz, jump blues and R&B scenes, and features the legendary Duke Ellington. Most of these performers have never had their biggest hits compiled in one place and for many years the likes of Count Basie and Duke Ellington, the acknowledged superstars of the black big band elite, were considered above the vulgarity of ‘hit records’ but these collections will feature all the 78’s they made that were money spinners on Jukeboxes across the world.
