I just got my copy in the mail and pardon me if I don't make it to work today, but I want to listen to each of the more
and one hundred tracks. Then I have to read the fabulous notes and look at each and every picture.
This collection is a MUST OWN for every music lover, even if you think you don't like Jazz. Somehow, Smithsonian Folkways and its fabulous advisers manage to make perfect, swinging sense out of America's very own music, you'll hear ragtime, Swing, Bop, Big Band and more. Each cut is a delight. Thank you, Smithsonian Folkways!
