I bought the first volume of this series, which I really enjoyed (although I knew just a few of the artists featured when I purchased it) and once again I came to this, the second, with little more than a cursory appreciation of the artists here - I'd run across only Albert Mangelsdorff, Dusko Goykovic, Pedro Iturralde and Hans Dulfer before. And once again I have to conclude that it's another triumph for Jazzman, one of the best boutique labels anywhere.
Unlike the previous reviewer I enjoy the R&B flavoured material in this series just as much as the more classically slanted numbers. Don't be put off if you're not a serious jazz-head, it's all just beautiful (European) music, superbly packaged as always. Roll on vol. 3.
