HASH(0x905239a8) out of 5 stars Quality control where art thou? 8 Jan. 2013
By rober l august - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This would be a great collection if distortion free, but here are the sad facts of the discs I received.
Disc (1)every cut is distorted
(2)only 6 (3-8)of 13 cuts are clear
(3)only the last 2 of 11 cuts are clear
(4)happily this disc (probably the best music also)has no distortion

The distortion I'm referring to is a low rumble. The music can still be heard, enjoying it is another matter.
Unfortunately,this is not the only selection in the series that suffers from problems.

HASH(0x9083db04) out of 5 stars Parlan's first six albums as a leader plus one with Dexter Gordon 27 Sept. 2013
By Mike Tarrani - Published on Amazon.com
This set comprises Parlan's first six albums as a leader - all for Blue Note - plus one led by Dexter Gordon. This incredibly prolific output was accomplished between 1960 and 61, and does not account for all of the recorded work Parlan did during that period.

I especially love the way this set and the first six albums in particular allow a glimpse into Parlan's professional growth. And it is evident even though some of the albums in this set were recorded almost back-to-back. Part of Parlan's success can be attributed to bassist George Tucker and drummer Al Harewood. They are on every album and grew with Parlan. Another thing I love is the collaborations with Stanley and Tommy Turrentine who are on two of these albums, as well as the final album featuring both Freddie Hubbard and Dexter Gordon on the only album in this set not led by Parlan. Lest I forget, the album featuring Booker Ervin and Grant Green is also priceless.

Instead of babbling on I will answer the two burning questions you may have. First, how is the sound? To my ears it is not only excellent, but I did not experience the media flaws that another reviewer reported. Second, what is in this set? I have taken the time to track down the background information of every album in this set, as well as to link to individual albums. Unfortunately almost no albums linked contain sound samples, but there are sound samples for every track on this page: The Jazz Collection. Let those be your true guides.

Note: Each of the seven albums in this set were recorded for Blue Note at Rudy van Gelder's Englewood Cliffs, NJ studio. Here is what this set contains:

HASH(0x90af85b0) out of 5 stars Lots of great music for a great price! 17 Dec. 2012
By SteveD - Published on Amazon.com
Wow. Let me tell you that I was a little unsure about purchasing one of these 4 CD box sets because of the sound quality may be or may not be that good. I was told by a true jazz music listener(whom I have known for a few years)who is also a well respected employee at a local music store in my area that you can't go wrong In purchasing any of these from Real Gone Jazz especially this one. Not only do you get six titles under Horace Parlan, 5 of which were only available as a Japanese import, you also get Dexter Gordon's Doin' Alright album as well. That's seven albums for under 20$!!

The only quibble is that there are no liner notes but there are lists of the musicians for each of the albums. The sound quality is good here. As for the other mini box sets out there that are on this label you may have to take a chance and rely on word of mouth like I did with this particular set.

This is great early 60's bop and blues with a couple of albums including the Turrentine Brothers Tommy & Stanley(Speakin' my Piece, On The Spur of The Moment), three trio albums(Movin' and Groovin',Us Three, Headin South)one album with Booker Ervin and Grant Green(Up and Down) and an album under Dexter Gordon`s name with Freddie Hubbard(Doin` Alright). All these albums feature Horace Parlan on piano. On Headin`South 5 of the 8 tracks include the great conga player Ray Barretto.

Overall a great purchase.You will not be disappointed!
