First off, the 20 page booklet is excellent, full of illustrations and with a detailed liner note by Brian Parks. The albums included are: Time Out (1959); Time Further Out (1961); The Riddle (1959); Gone with the Wind (1959) & Bernstein Plays Brubeck Plays Bernstein (1960). The 5 albums/CDs add up to approx 198 minutes of jazz from one of the finest of musicians. 4 of the albums feature Paul Desmond on alto sax with only the quartet for The Riddle substituting William O Smith on clarinet. This fine collectors set includes many of his signature pieces as well as albums that explore the genre. Clear sound throughout. The packaging is first rate and this would make a great gift for anyone wishing to obtain at a very reasonable price 5 exceptional albums. The artwork for each CD is that of a mini LP sleeve and they make a most attractive set. Another excellent addition to the jazz catalogue at Not Now Music.
