Blowin' Up A Breeze

Chu Berry is perhaps best known for his tenor saxophone work with Cab Calloway's Cotton Club Orchestra. Prior to joining Calloway's orchestra, Berry worked with Sammy Stewart, Benny Carter, Teddy Hill, and Fletcher Henderson. Though Berry based his style on that followed by Coleman Hawkins, the older man regarded Berry as his equal. His composition "Christopher Columbus" was the last important hit recording of the Fletcher Henderson orchestra, recorded in 1936. It is one of the most popular riff tunes from the swing era and used as the final showstopper in Benny Goodman's first Carnegie Hall Jazz concert dating from 1938. Berry also played for a while in the Count Basie Big band. His most impressing recording with that band is "Oh, Lady Be Good". (from Wiki). Enjoy. +

This and a good number of other files containing The Chronological Classics series of diverse performers are still on Rapishare (or Rapidshit) only and consequently unavailable :-(
