Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Priceless Jazz Sampler offers 15 highlights from BMG/RCA's Priceless series, including cuts by Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Lionel Hampton, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman and Woody Herman. There's nothing rare on the compilation, so it's not necessary for collectors, but it's not a bad sampler for casual listeners curious about the series.

    This is good

    I don't think that this CD has the best collection of songs, but it has a good variety.
