Titled Savoy 60th Anniversary: Timeless, the CDs feature state-of-the-art transfers from the actual acetate and tape masters created by these legendary artists at the original historic recording sessions. Listeners can now fully realize such great songs as "Parker's Mood," "Bohemia After Dark," and Little Jimmy Scott's first big record, "When Did You Leave Heaven?," in their finest quality available to date. A best buy for jazz history buffs.

    A Great Introduction to Jazz

    Being relatively new to this genre I was looking for a good introductory set to pick up. I must say I am blown away by it, has alot of jazz greats including Charlie Parker and Miles Davis. If you're looking for a great Jazz album get this one, don't buy any of that "smooth jazz" or "weather channel" baloney, get this.
