Review

Review Text Hmmm. These "must have recordings for the serious jazz collector" are presented on a double-disc set from Madacy. They were recorded at the Royal Roost in New York between 1948 and 1950. Basically, this stuff is Miles from during and just after the cool era. Bandmembers include Gerry Mulligan, John Lewis, Lee Konitz, and Max Roach. The problem is, there are no detailed notes of who plays on what track and none of them document exact performances. These sound an awful lot like radio transcriptions, but because of the lack of information listeners can't be sure. The quality of the music is high and the sound is OK -- certainly better than a lot of those "recordings with historic value" things. And the track list ranges from "Ornithology" (not exactly a cool piece) on disc one to "Moon Dreams" and "You Go to My Head" on disc two. Hardcore fans probably have these recordings elsewhere, although completists who don't will probably want them -- but as for anyone else, these are merely curiosity pieces. This is dodgy. ~ Thom Jurek
