3.0 out of 5 stars Vocals?
One of the CDs contained several unexpected and unlisted tracks by a vocal group, as though something had gone wrong with the mixing, but the remaining tracks were fine and properly detailed.

Ahmad Jamal (born July 2, 1930 as Frederick Russell Jones) is best known as an innovative and influentialjazz pianist and composer. According to Stanley Crouch, Jamal is second in importance in the development of jazz after 1945 to Charlie Parker. For five decades, he has been one of the most successful small-group leaders in jazz.
This new 3 CD set brings together 4 of the artists most well loved albums from the period 1958 to 1961. All 4 albums were originally released on the Argo label. This collection provides a mix of well known standards and jazz classics. It is good to have both live and studio recordings as the different atmospheres add to the performances. The first 2 CDs have running times of 41 and 37 minutes with CD3 having 2 albums on it and a running time of 62 minutes.
The slim line packaging includes liner notes by Peter Gamble and an attractively illustrated cover with a predominantly orange theme. The sound transfers on CD1 and CD2 are excellent. CD3 does have sound level differences between some tracks on tracks 1 to 9 and then much more level volume on the whole of The Pershing Lounge tracks.
This set represents great value and having all these stylish performances in one set is a plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Production fault, but no faulting the music..., 27 July 2012
This review is from: Moods (Audio CD)
I can't add anything more to the previous review regarding the music on this 3CD set - it's superb.

This review is just to say that the first copy I received had a production fault on CD3, with some of the tracks replaced by songs from a completely different artist (a male vocal group, no idea who...). I emailed Not Now Music, who acknowledged there had been a manufacturing problem, and sent me a free replacement boxset with the correct tracks.

So buy with confidence!

2.0 out of 5 stars Vacuous jazz, 16 April 2013

This review is from: Moods (Audio CD)
The third cd isn't Jamal, no idea how this made it onto the set. Even the Jamal is early and feels very trite compared to what say Bill Evans was doing at the time
