The Alternative Takes, Vol. 6: 1937-1938

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. 6: 1937-1938 contains 25 Duke Ellington tracks on a single disc, including two takes of "Peckin'" and "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm." While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it.
