The bargain of the year!
on 23 May 2014
I'm impressed.16 jazz guitarists of the 1950s,18 albums ( 3 by Django ) on 10 cds all for a tenner !All in seperate sleeves with the personnel listed plus recording dates and venues.A facsimile of the original album sleeve is also included on the covers.What more could you wish for?The remastering has provided good recording quality, although the Django sides originally recorded in 1947 are a bit iffy but bearable.There are no solo guitar albums in this set and the music is typical of 1950s small group modern jazz with Art Pepper, Bud Shank,Al Cohn,Bill Holman and Bob Brookmeyer included in the personnel listings.
I am enjoying these recordings and look forward to volume 2 which is apparently in the pipeline.
