I have long been of the opinion that the 1950s were the greatest decade in jazz. This superb Avid release merely confirms my feelings as I listened to the four albums, none of which I had heard before.
The first CD kicks off with the album "The Jazz Skyline" recorded in Jan. 1956 and featuring Jackson with Lucky Thompson (ts) Hank Jones (pno) Wendell Marshall (b) and Kenny Clarke (dms). Thompson has been badly neglected on CD but this release goes some way to putting matters right (see also the recent John Lewis CD on Avid). This is a thoroughly enjoyable session. I particularly liked "Angel Face" and "What's New". The last named is a feature for Thompson. I thought Stan Getz had recorded the definitive version a few years previous but may have to review my assessment.
Next up is the album "Milt Jackson Quartet" recorded in May 1955. Basically, this is the MJQ with Horace Silver replacing Lewis. This change plus the choice of material makes any comparison pointless. A straight forward swinging affair.
This disc is rounded off with three tracks from the July 1948 session featuring Theloniuos Monk with Jackson assisted by John Simmons (b) and Shadow Wilson (dms) playing three classic Monk originals.
The second CD opens with the album "Telefunken Blues" on which Kenny Clarke is the nominal leader. It features two sessions of 4 tracks each.
The first was recorded in Hollywood in Nov. 1954 with Jackson, Frank Morgan (as) Walter Benton (ts)Gerald Wiggins (pno) and Percy heath (b) This is a very nice session but the second one is even better. This was laid down in New York in Feb 1955 and features Jackson on piano with Henry Coker (tmb) Frank Wess (ts & flute)Charlie Fowlkes (bari) Eddie Jones (d)and Kenny Clarke (dms).

Difficult to believe that the quality of sound and packaging should be so good at this price. It's worth it for the splendid 'Plenty Plenty Soul' alone, which finds Bags in a biggish-band context, but 'The Jazz Skyline' with the underrated Lucky Thompson is excellent, Kenny Clarke's 'Telefunken Blues' with the master of the vibraphone on piano and 'Milt Jackons Quartet' with Horace Silver on piano are also well worth the price of admission. Don't hesitate for even a moment; it's a swinging affair.

It is very interesting to listen to Milt Jackson as a leader, mostly in the Fifties. These are the complete recordings in two cds from four different dates: "Milt Jackson Quartet" (1955), "Telefunken Blues" (1954-55), "The Jazz Skyline" (1956) and "Plenty, Plenty Soul" (1957). Three tunes are added from the recordings that Jackson made in 1948 with Thelonious Monk, maybe just to fill the cd length: actually, there's no need to include it, due to the fact that Monk's album containing those masterpieces ("Genius of Modern Music vol.1") is already an essential item in every good record collection. In these two Milt Jackson's cds we hear beautiful bop music, with strong influences from blues and gospel. In the same years the vibist was part of the Modern Jazz Quartet, the group where he really played at its best. But these recordings as a leader are strongly recommended, also because the personnels are full of great jazzmen, such as Lucky Thompson, Oscar Pettiford, Art Blakey, Joe Newman. Last bu not the least: in "Milt Jackson Quartet" we can hear what the Modern Jazz Quartet could be if Horace Silver were in place of John Lewis.
