one GREAT song on a so-so album
Record company compilation albums are always tough to enjoy. You dont always get the best of each artist. This disc from Impulse Records is no different...WITH ONE HUGE EXCEPTION. Whether you are a Jazz novice or veteran collector, go immediately to John Handy's (greatest hit) "Hard Work" and download it. It is one of the most enjoyable, upbeat jazz tunes ever recorded! Handy is also known as one of jazz' most under-rated "horny" dudes. Enjoy!
Not bad at all
Don't listen to the other two reviews, this CD is unbelievably excellent. I highly recommend Alamode and Hard Work, they're fantastic.
Not the Best
Good music, excellent musicians, and a whole lot of experience went into this album. But honestly, it isn't the best compilation to own if you're just entering the jazz world. It's a little disappointing that these are the only artist they could think of for such a great genre. Do I regret owning it? Yeah, a little.
