The five CDs are divided into overlapping categories: "In the Beginning" James P. Johnson, Jelly Roll Morton, Earl Hines, Fats Waller and Teddy Wilson, "Bop" Art Tatum, Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, "Swingers" Tommy Flanagan, Kenny Barron, Wynton Kelly, Horace Silver, Cedar Walton, Hank Jones, Duke Ellington, Count ...

Some of the performances many cut live were made for the Laserlight labels, such as LRC and Groove Merchant, while others were leased from other labels such as Savoy, Denon and Delmark. A good sampler of the history of jazz piano; even veteran collectors will not already own some of these selections.

    This Box Set sounds great, but don't be fooled by the other review. This set only contains 5 CD's. It is still worth the money though.
