I have long admired the work of Wynton Kelly in performance as a sideman, so have been looking forward to getting to know his other work in more detail and bought this boxed set as an inexpensive way of doing that. I already had his trio albums from 1951 that are included here. I had high expectations of albums such as "Kelly Blue" having read some reviews on this website.
I remain impressed by the work from 1951, but overall much of the rest of the work from the remaining five albums fails to impress me. I suppose I like the trio / quartet albums (of which there are four in total) rather than the two quintet/sextet albums.
These multi-album compilations from "Real Gone" seem good value for money and the music quality generally seems fine (but some on my disc three seems a bit "wobbly") but there is no information beyond personnel, album title, date and track titles.
For me this has turned out to be disappointing.

Miles Davis was graced with playing with some of the greatest jazz piano players (in any book yet written): Monk, Silver, Garland, Kelly, Evans, Feldman, Hancock, Corea, Jarrett.. but the Hard Bop specialist was Kelly, so anything that becomes available should be sought for and got!

By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 April 2013
Wynton Kelly's release of his"Six Classic Albums" features
the albums "Piano Interpretations (1951)",
"Piano (1958)",
"Kelly Blue (1959)",
"Kelly Great (1959)",
Kelly At Midnight (1960)" and
"Wynton Kelly! (1961)".

Six Classic Albums held on 4 CDs means that you get an awful lot of music but this price, at the time or writing, seems a tad high.
As these recordings are over 50 years old they are public domain. I wonder if the estate of Tad are getting a cut of the profits? I hope so.
The Real Gone Jazz label has garnered some really good reviews for sound quality.
The digitally enhanced sound is a good indicator but for a proper review I really suggest you read other, more knowledgeable people's reviews.
The collection is on 4 CDs encased in a double wide jewel case.

But Amazon, at the time of review have not given a list of the classic albums or the track listings.

So this may be of interest and use?
As always if you see any typos add a note and I will correct and credit you with the correction- just add a comment......

5.0 out of 5 stars Compilation of some of Kelly's best work as a leader 2 July 2013
By Mike Tarrani - Published on Amazon.com
This collection starts with Wynton's first album as a leader in 1951, then jumps to the late 50s/early 60s. It wasn't as if he was idle during the eight year gap between the first and second album in this set. He wasn't. A quick scroll through his discography shows one busy man who was very much in demand as a sideman when he wasn't leading. In fact, my first introduction to Wynton's playing was on Dinah Washington albums - and he backed her at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, which was captured in the movie, Jazz on a Summer's Day.

The two burning questions to which you probably want answers are: (1) How does this set sound? (2) What does it contain?

Sound Quality: more than acceptable. Not audiophile quality, but not flawed either. I would put this set on par with the others in this series. It's obvious that the tracks have undergone some remastering and clean-up, but the original fidelity is still captured.

Contents: I have linked to each of the source albums, many of which have sound samples and reviews that you can listen to and consider. I've also included each track, the time, and the who, when and where. All of the albums included are as they were originally released. Modern reissues may have more tracks, but those are bonus tracks that are usually alternate takes that are not included in this compilation.

There are six albums spanning the four discs in this set. Here are the exact contents:
==========
DISC ONE

The first nineteen tracks are the album titled Piano Interpretations that was recorded for Blue Note at the WOR Studios in NYC on July 25 & August 1, 1951.

This is a value-priced set of some of Kelley's best work as a leader. If you tally up the prices of the individual albums and compare them to the cost of this one (at the time of this review) you will understand that this earns five stars for the music and another five for value.
