This is a lovely collection, for a very modest price. Some of these albums are difficult to obtain in any other way, and most have strong recommendations in both 'All Music' and 'Penguin' guides to Jazz. Most reflect Mann's melodic, crystal tone in bop, a richly caressing way with ballads, and his Afro-Cuban percussive delights. To my mind, some of the strongest albums here include the quintet with Sam Most, 'Sultry Serenade', 'Just Wailin' & 'Flute Fraternity'.
Sound quality is very good throughout, and there is a beautifully warm ambience to the recordings. Excellent value.
