Its three studio albums plus a few numbers previously issued only on samplers and nine previously unreleased performances mostly alternate takes are on this wonderful two-CD set. The high points are many, including "Dizzy's Business," "Jessica's Day," "The Champ," "Cool Breeze," "Birks Works," "Whisper Not," "Stablemates," and "I Remember Clifford." Essential music.
