Get This Box set!!!!!!!!!!!,
This review is from: The Perfect Jazz Collection - 25 Original Albums (Audio CD)
This is just about the best collection I have ever seen. It covers decades of Jazz From Louis Armstrong (clearly the best musician ever) plays WC Handy, Which was recorded in the 50s but the music was written 30 years before, Right up to Weather report, an awsome album of jazz - rock - funk fusion. There is a huge variety from jazz-thats-almost-pop to blues. There are no artists that don't deserve to be included in the perfect jazz collection although I would have prefered the inclusion of Ella Fitzgerald for example. All of the albums are as they were originally released in their original sleve only smaller as they are CDs, this is great but means that some of the writing is almost impossible to read. Most of the CDs last around an our because there are bonus tracks to make up for the fact that the records only lasted around 40 mins. This means that it is great value for money and you get to hear other versions of great songs and some that you have never heard before.
