This box set is loaded with superb music played by various line-ups that read like a who's who of jazz from the late 50s and early 60s but sound quality is variable as follows:-
CD1
"This is how I feel about jazz" = Sound OK but could be a bit brighter
"Go West man" = Sound is fine but bass line more pronounced than on the CD issue by Chessmates
CD 2
"The Birth of A Band Vol 1" = Clear but sounds like it was recorded in an empty aircraft hanger.
"The Birth of A Band Vol 2" = same as volume 1.
CD 3
"Dig Dancers" = Once again clear but aircraft hanger effect.
"The great wide world of Quncey Jones" - Fine. Probably the best on the set
CD 4
"Live at Newport" = Dreadful. Sounds like a bootleg effort
"The great wide World - Live" (in France?) = Not brilliant but acceptable from a live recording
In some ways only a 3 star set but I have rated as 4 as it is superb value for money and good points far outweigh the bad.

Some superb music on here of course, but the editing, notes ( zero) sound and presentation let this set down big time.

Good value for money, and as stated I get a good sound on my equipment, Bose. A little disappointed on some of the
tracks selected ,could have had a little more of the more popularQuincy Jones recordingds
