Legacy’s Signature Series Comps Feature Basie, Breckers, Gillespie, Holiday, Vaughan

It seems like almost every established artist on the planet has released a Best of album. Legacy Recordings plans to one-up even the best Best of discs with their new Signature Series, slated for release Aug. 1.

Compiled and produced by Richard Seidel-who previously worked on Legacy’s Jazz Moods Series and Music for Lovers Series-the Signature Series will present only the “greatest songs by the greatest artists” of jazz. Each title in the series will focus on one artist, and will include a short biography, discography information and trivia like what musicians influenced the artist, Grammy Awards and other career highlights.
