  Savoy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Savoy (French: Savoie, pronounced /savwa/; Franco-Provençal: Savouè; Italian: Savoia) is a region of western Europe that emerged, along with the free communes of Switzerland, following the collapse of the Frankish Kingdom of Burgundy.
Savoy was largely absorbed into France in 1860, as part of the political agreement with Napoleon III that brought about the unification of Italy.
Savoy was annexed by France on March 24, 1860 according to the provisions of the Treaty of Turin.

 Welcome to the Savoy Ballroom Website www.savoyballroom.com
Harlem's Savoy Ballroom was a major music and dance powerhouse of the SWING ERA that lasted from the early 1930's to the mid 1940's.
The sad truth is that the Savoy records were destroyed and thus in order to understand its history we are obliged to undertake the laborious task of collecting surviving fragments of information and gathering oral recollections in order to piece together the main facets of the story.
In a way they could all be right in that the Savoy represented something special to each generation that was fortunate enough to swing out on its superlative floor, although of course each individual claim does not cancel out the validity of the competing versions of the other generations.

 Charlie Parker :The Complete Savoy & Dial Master Takes
Recorded in February 1947, after Parker’s breakdown and subsequent recovery at the Camarillo mental facility, it includes “Relaxin’ at Camarillo” and three McGhee compositions, “Cheers”, “Carvin’ the Bird”, and “Stupendous”.
As a Musicians Union recording ban approached, Dial owner Ross Russell was accelerating his recording of Parker, so there is another Dial session done on December 17 of ’47, with Russell’s wife, Dorothy, supervising the session because Ross was apparently ill yet unwilling to cancel the session.
In any case, once the recording ban was over, only Savoy returned to recording him, with two September ’48 sessions, on the 18th and 24th proving to be the label’s swan song with Parker.

 Ralph Bass - Biography - AOL Music
While there he recorded sessions for artists such as Jack McVea and Roosevelt Sykes and learned how to, and how not to, run a record company (B&W's owner Paul Reiner released so many records he ran the label into the ground).
Lubinsky, a famously shrewd and scrooge-esque record man, was on the verge of turning Savoy into a major player in the R&B and jazz market, he just needed a solid producer.
Bass became that producer, recording the droves of budding jazz and soul men that were gigging in New York City, among them Charlie Parker and Billy Eckstine.
