Does exactly what it says on the cover, exhaustively listing nearly every jazz standard. There are some omissions, no 'Strange Fruit' for one. Maybe it's not 'standard' enough.
I might have been inclined to give an extra star if it wasn't for the author's ill-disguised hatred of all other musical genres - especially 'pop', about which he gets particularly snide. There's nothing better than jazz Ted, we get it.
