5.0 out of 5 stars Swanage or Scheveningen?, 26 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kind of Davis (Audio CD)
Real value for money. Bit of a mixed bag but some worthwhile tracks here for the collector. Another reviewer has made an excellent stab at identifying most of the more esoteric tracks, however I would suggest that the music on disc 6 (labeled as being recorded 1961 in Swanage, England!) is from the 9th April 1960 concert at Scheveningen, Netherlands as the content seems to follow the tracks recorded there (with a more or less accurate approximation to the timings of the Scheveningen concert ).

Quality mp3 of a great concert. Good performances on some of the well known song titles from this period in Miles' European tour programe. If you have the Columbia "Miles Davis in Europe" music already then you need this as well to cover what must have been a great moment in the European tour sets for the line up of Davis/Coleman/Hancock/Carter/Williams. Bargain.

Fantastic value for money. Mostly good sounding recordings and fine packaging. Pity about the lack of info but any Miles fan worth their salt will know where to go to get the recording/artist facts on most on these remarkable recordings (good early examples with Charlie Parker). Buy before it goes out of print........

This review is from: The Anthology '55-'58 (Audio CD)
Another top quality set of 1950's jazz by Miles Davis - I already had the '51 - '55 set in my collection. As always, packaging is first class - like all the sets of 5 CD's in this series. I did have to contact Not Now Music because of a manufacturing flaw on one of the CD's in the set which was probably a "one off" fault, but this was replaced straight away and the replacement CD arrived in the post within 2 days. Top draw service from Oli in their customer info. department. Buy this set before it goes out of production!

Exactly what I wanted. Works for me to use lower lumen bulbs which have E14 SES in E27 socket.

You know the music, you have purchased it before but want an updated set. This is the one to get - good value and great packaging with original artwork on face of individual CD card slip covers.

Lovely great value sample of Bill Evans' Riverside recordings (another Not Now Music box set, "The Riverside Years", is a great partner to this collection). My one gripe with Not Now Music is the packaging - often praised - but on closer inspection, falling short on a couple of points. The booklets included are well produced and informative, but do not necessarily relate specifically to the included music. Some sets have NNM generic type card CD slip covers whilst other collections have very good front face reproductions of the original LP cover artwork ( Miles Davis "Walkin' Cookin' etc" set is particularly good). The two Bill Evans sets fall into another area - "Riverside collection" almost has the original artwork on the sleeves (bar a few details), but for some strange reason "Riverside Years" has the original sleeve art reduced in size with a white border around the edge. Shame about this - one hopes that they will soon standardize the format for all future box set releases. Overall, good sound, good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Kind of Blue" AGAIN........, 11 Feb. 2016

This review is from: Jazz 10 (Audio CD)
Nicely packaged set with some interesting discs, but spoilt by lazy inclusion of "Kind of Blue" & "Time Out" - Sony/Columbia have already slotted these two discs into some of their other sets, so there will be duplication if you like buying box sets.There are many other fine titles that could have been included instead.
