    Terrible

    This and the first book are both rediculous!
    When someone reviews Jazz they must be an Artist themselves or they have no basis on which to judge any art.
    We have to make up our own minds about what we like and can leave out of our collections when it comes to art. True art requires that of us. we have to educate our own depth and taste for it. It should be presented to us in a offering like fine wine and we are to make our own minds up. What we don't like now we may very well love at another time and space of mind. These artists are for the most part Masters but also just because they are signed to a record lable dosen't make them great either.
