Format: Audio CD
An excellent, and reasonably priced, anthology of JATP concert recordings from 1944 until 1953, this is an ideal collection for those who would like to explore an important series of jazz recordings by major figures of the period. As is usual with Membran, there are no discographical details. These can be found easily on the Verve Discography website, so this is not a great loss.

The music is, it must be said, variable in quality. There are just too many 'flag waving' and boring tenor solos from Jacquet and Philips and not enough of the latter's sensitive ballad playing. There is too much playing for the gallery. This must have been exciting in the hall but, quite honestly, doesn't stand up to repeat listening.

However there are also some superb performances on these discs. To name just a few - Charlie Parker's superb solo on 'Embraceable You', Lester Young's on the 1949 'Lester Leaps In', the Coleman Hawkins Quartet numbers, and some outstanding Billie Holiday tracks. Again, excellent playing from Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Eldridge, Charlie Shavers, Bill Harris, Benny Carter and Ben Webster is thoroughly enjoyable although not equal to their finest work on record.

All in all, this is a set that deserves to be heard. I shall certainly be returning to it with pleasure - although, I suspect, to some parts more than others!

Disc 1 and and part of disc 2 alone contain all but one of Nat King Coles 1944 recordings with JATP ( a 3 minute track missing) and elsewhere there are 'brief' sets from the past that purchased alone cost more than the price of these 10 CDs. No wonder there is little information on the music other than a general 'featuring' title for each CD which is often a little misleading (but never disappointing) and the names of the individual tracks.
Want to know who started the idea of a Supergroup and put it into practice against the odds about 25 years before the term was thought of - again and again. Well its all in here.
Sound Quality for the age is excellent.
An amazing record of what went on at an amazing price !
P.S. Who is Norman Shrdlu ??

This is a terrific album of late swing/bebop jazz from the Norman Grantz series of JAPT concerts from 1944 to 1953. Featuring most of the top stars from that era the shows are legendary and quite rightly so if these sides are anything to go by, pity we don't get tours like this now!
I have a large collection of music at home but these are getting more play than most because of the simple joie de vivre of the performances, the enthusiasm of the musicians reflected in the applause of the audiences.
This really is a bargain for jazz lovers, and all the discographical information can be found on the excellent 'Jazz discography project' site under the entries for the Verve label (I did a copy and paste exercise onto a word doc).
