4.0 out of 5 stars Funky Fun Jazz, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complete Arista Albums Collection (Audio CD)
This might not be everyone's cup of coffee in the jazz world as these guys love funk and fun, but boy can they play as well!

In this box you get 8 albums of predominantly happy music so far as I am concerned, with many of the tracks insisting that at least one foot is tapping. OK so these albums were recorded between 75 and 80 and I concede to some extent they are a product of their time, but for me I reckon they have aged well, with the exception of some of the vocal tracks. Michael Brecker who sadly passed away 7 years ago was one hell of a sax man and Randy was no slouch on the trumpet. As this box is available for such a reasonable price, anyone considering a purchase simply should take the plunge!

Packaging is like other boxes in this series with each album in a replica cardboard sleeve, all held in a clamshell box. There's also a 20 page booklet with a very short note by Randy, some photos, track listing, personnel etc, a lovely little set!
