New Editions to Best Selling Jazz Midline Series of All Time Are:
“Jazz For Spring”
“Jazz at the Movies”
“Jazz in the Afternoon with Cole—Celebrating the Songs of Cole Porter”

April 14, 2014 Santa Monica, CA: Savoy Jazz is set to release three new editions in its successful Jazz For midline series of compilations: Jazz for Spring, Jazz at the Movies and Jazz in the Afternoon with Cole—Celebrating the Songs of Cole Porter (celebrating the 50th Anniversary of his death in 2014). The pioneering theme-based collections are aimed at the casual consumer as opposed to the jazz aficionado (they’re particularly popular with women), tapping into an eager audience for classic jazz music. The series has been wildly successful having sold over three million units to date. The highly appealing collections feature stylish covers and include over an hour’s music each and includes classic tracks from legends within the jazz world—from the Count Basie Orchestra, to Dizzy Gillespie, Judy Garland and many others. Jazz for Spring, Jazz at the Movies and Jazz in the Afternoon with Cole—Celebrating the Songs of Cole Porter will be released on Savoy Jazz April 15th.
