5.0 out of 5 stars Rare and well re-mastered recordings from a Jazz legend - for 5 (& free postage!), 23 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seven Classic Albums (Audio CD)
Seven scarce recordings by a legendary Jazz figure, whose work, were it not for these discs, would still be a mystery to me. Everything the Jazz review & history books say about the stature of this man in the music of this period is verified here. He was a giant, in full command of his instrument & years ahead of his time. His reasons for turning his back and walking away are perfectly understandable, but what a loss to the Jazz community. Dating from the years 1956-9 - according to the accompanying booklet, which does give full individual album details, personnel, titles & dates - these re-masterings of recordings from a time when Fi was not always necessarily that Hi, are absolutely excellent, so dispelling any fears engendered by other reviews of this company's output, certainly for this collection. The acid test for me of an album's interest is if I replay it as soon as it finishes. At the moment it's never off the turntable, sorry, CD player!
