There are a few exceptions in the case of artists who recently recorded for Verve, like Herbie Hancock, Abbey Lincoln, Jimmy Heath, Wayne Shorter, and Joe Henderson, but these modern tracks don't drag the collection down since these artists were all making strong records at the time. NEA Jazz Masters would make a fine introduction to jazz for a new fan or a nice, if inessential, pickup for a seasoned fan who wants a bunch of solid jazz.
