The Alternative Takes, Vol. 3: 1941

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
The Alternative Takes series is of immense value to consumers of the "French Classics" CD series. These are alternate takes in chronological order of historic jazz and some blues with a strong representation of the swing era. The Alternative Takes, Vol. 3: 1941 contains 26 Count Basie tracks on a single disc including multiple takes of "Fiesta in Blue," "One-Two-Three-O'lairy," and "The Jitters." While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it.
