The Best of Chess Jazz

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This double LP has music from 18 different groups mostly from 1956-66 and puts the focus on Chess's much-overlooked jazz catalog. Best-known as one of the leading Chicago blues labels, Chess as shown on this two-fer recorded many interesting jazz dates ranging from James Moody and Gene Ammons to Benny Goodman, the Jazztet, Ramsey Lewis and even John Klemmer. Although the original albums are preferred, this sampler does have its strong selections and if found at a budget price is worth picking up.
