The Doctor Jazz Series Vol 1


The previously unissued jazz masterpieces in this series of compact discs are drawn from a remarkable radio series called “Dr. Jazz”. Aime Gauvin, a staff announcer at a major New York City station, WMGM, approached his bosses with the idea of broadcasting remotes six night a week from each of the city’s most important jazz clubs. Gauvin opened each program with “Hello, this is Dr. Jazz, with a prescription for what ails you” and closed with the Ducal admonition that “It don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that swing”.
