A joy from start to finish......,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Perfect Jazz Collection Box - Volume 2 (Audio CD)
Another great value set from Sony. As in Vol 1 there is an interesting selection of familiar and not so familiar titles,with the slant veering towards more modern (fusion)releases then previously.One benefit of this sort of collection is that one feels emboldened to search out discs by artistes that had formally alluded one's attention.In my case,to highlight but two of many possible examples, I love the Gerry Mulligan 'Carnegie Hall Concert Vol 1/2, which features a beautiful version of 'My Funny Valentine' and much else of worth besides. Also,Freddie Hubbard's 'Straight Life' is an absolutely stunning fusionish record from start to finish,featuring the ever inventive George Benson on guitar.So at some point I'm going to have to get Hubbard's 'Red Clay', featuring the same line up and apparently just as good!
At present then I am assiduously working my way through this collection and am very pleased with the standard of remastering,the quality of the bonus tracks many of the discs contain and the solidly informative accompanying booklet.I look forward wth anticipation to Vol 3! Strong recommendation.
