Telarc Celebrating 25 Years: The Jazz Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
In what has proved to be a lucrative relationship with such prominent jazz artists as Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck, Ray Brown, George Shearing, McCoy Tyner, and Dizzy Gillespie, among many others, much of the Telarc international jazz label's rich musical history is captured on Telarc Celebrating 25 Years. The two-disc set features 25 excerpts from Telarc's Digital Compact Disc Catalog from more than a decade of jazz in the label's 25th anniversary retrospective.

In what has proved to be a lucrative relationship with such prominent jazz artists as Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck, Ray Brown, George Shearing, McCoy Tyner, and Dizzy Gillespie, among many others, much of the Telarc international jazz label's rich musical history is captured on Telarc Celebrating 25 Years. The two-disc set features 25 excerpts from Telarc's Digital Compact Disc Catalog from more than a decade of jazz in the label's 25th anniversary retrospective. In addition to the seasoned vets, some relative newcomers to the label's roster make the cut, including vocalists Tierney Sutton and Kevin Mahogany, along with pianist Benny Green. Songs such as "Trust" by Monty Alexander, "Merry-Go-Round," by vocalist Freddy Cole, and "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes" by McCoy Tyner display ample evidence of the label's continued appeal to jazz enthusiasts and the depth of the talent associated with it. The addition of "I Only Have Eyes for You" from the 1989 release After Hours should fascinate trivia buffs since it chronicles Telarc's leap into jazz recording. One of the most beautiful pieces on the compilation is Dave Brubeck's solo rendition of "Lullaby" from the recording entitled Just You, Just Me. Overall, this retrospective manages to balance both sides of the proverbial generation gap, and the results should appeal to both seasoned and new jazz fans interested in collecting the historical aspect of this record label.
