Worlds Greatest Jazz Collection ~ Dave Brubeck
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars awesome, just awesome, 11 July 2012
If you are jazz aficionado, intend to become one or have children, don't think twice - order this collection while it is still available at bargain price of approx. 200 euros. Google around for the best deal. Five hundred CDs means one new disk to listen to every day for year and a half.

Having in mind that much of collection is archive material, sound quality is quite acceptable. That was my major concern before purchase. Provided database is very helpful in choosing how to listen (randomly, stuff you do not know first, one instrument, many performers, one performer etc. Possibilities are endless, like running your own jazz museum.

Another awesome collection by Universal Korea. There is not a single filler among 25 well known disks. Mini LP cardboard sleeves take less space on the shelf than jewel cases and do not break. Sound quality is exceptional and surpasses mid-80s CD issues.

Buy it while you can, unless you have it already on vinyl.
