Three Classic Albums Plus: Showcase/Little Klunk/Jazz Inc.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Two of the three classic Stan Tracey album referenced on the cover of this double-disc set are Showcase, his debut album from 1958, and Little Klunk, which was his first to feature only his own compositions. Then things get murky. Jazz Inc., which is featured here in its entirety, was actually recorded by the Tony Crombie Orchestra, of which Tracey was a part.

The back sleeve has an interesting typo: it claims that Jazz Inc. is comprised of tracks 1-28 on disc two, but there are only 16 selections on the disc.

As an introduction to one of British jazz's great original voices, this is truly worthy.
