Review

Review Text This two-CD set is rather odd. Programmed loosely (but not exactly) in alphabetical order, the first 41 selections mostly stick to early jazz of the pre-1950 era with the emphasis on vocalists ranging from the comedian Bert Williams and Louis Armstrong to Cab Calloway and Sarah Vaughan. The final nine numbers attempt to sum up the past 40 years in Black pop music (jazz is notably absent so was probably judged not "entertaining") and has performances from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Little Richard and Marvin Gaye. This sampler (which does contain some formerly rare early recordings) is a bit of a hodgepodge, making jazz appear to be a historical music that ceased to exist 45 years ago. ~ Scott Yanow
