Overview

This collection contains a fine group of the biggest names of classic jazz: Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, and Jimmy Scott, among others. Unfortunately, an all-star cast does not always a good compilation make. Many of these performers' second and third-rate songs are featured here which causes the collection to suffer as a whole.
