Trumpeter Buck Clayton led a series of exciting studio jam sessions during the mid-’50s. Here’s another album from the collection of Bibliothèque nationale de France. It was recorded on December 14, 1953, at Columbia Studios, New York City.
The BnF’s audio collection, with over a million audio documents, is one of the oldest and most important ones in the world. Born in 1911 as the Archives de la parole (Archives of the spoken word), it was fortunate enough to be the recipient of donations from contemporary phonographic companies. In 1938, with the institution of legal deposit for phonograms, these contributions became systematic; to this very day, they constitute the collection’s main growth vector, forming a one-of-a-kind national heritage. This legal deposit is further complemented by donations and acquisitions.
