The Best Blue Note Album in the World...Ever!

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Best Blue Note Album in the World Ever may boast a silly title, but it's hard to argue with what's on this double-disc sampler. Not all of the label's greatest artists are here, but everything is representative, showing how hard bop like John Coltrane's "Blue Train" and Lee Morgan's "The Sidewinder" coexisted with soul-jazz from Grant Green "Born to Be Blue", Jimmy Smith "Back at the Chickenshack", and Horace Silver "Song for My Father".

    one great CD, and one so-so CD

    I can live with the first CD. It isn't what I would choose, but it's pretty good. The second CD, with the exception of Jimmy Smith's "Back at the Chicken Shack", needs to be completely redone. A few suggestions: Add Donald Byrd's "Free Flight". Add Herbie Hancock's "Maiden Voyage" and "Dolphin Dance". Add Grant Green's "Idle Moments", Art Blakey's "Free for all", Wayne Shorter's "Adam's Apple", and Joe Henderson's "Mode for Joe", and "Recorda Me". Insert McCoy Tyner's "Passion Dance". Last, but not least, put in Freddie Hubbard's "Open Sesame". That should bring it back up to 4 stars at least. Not the greatest Blue Note CD in the world, but close enough.
