Overview

Jazz vibraphonist Milt Jackson played countless sessions during his career and released dozens of fine albums as well under his own name. This five-disc set collects seven of those albums in a single package, including 1956's Ballads & Blues, 1957's Soul Brothers (with Ray Charles) and Bags & Flutes, 1960's The Ballad Artistry of Milt Jackson, 1964's Vibrations, and a pair of LP compilations, The Art of the Atlantic Years and Bebop. It adds up to a big chunk of Jackson, and it all flows wonderfully together, a measure of his talent and consistency.
