Rosemary Clooney has one of the most distinctive voices. The minute she starts to sing you can tell that it is Rosemary. Her phrasing is superb and her voice as smooth as velvet. This collection is a great testament to her individuality and her beautiful voice. Absolutely superb. ~ review by Alan Woodside

Great Small group bop! This is the beginning of Wayne Shorter's tenure as Music Director. This anthology represents a peak in The Jazz Messenger's story beginning with such brightly hued originals as "The Chess Players" and "Lester Left Town" from THE BIG BEAT (1960), Morgan (tpt), Shorter (ts), Timmons (p.), Merritt (b), Blakey (d). This is the classic Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers signature style: inventive solos, driving, witty arrangements-in short everything you could want in a jazz masterpiece circa 1960.

Robert Henry Timmons (December 19, 1935 – March 1, 1974) was an American jazz pianist and composer. He was a sideman in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers for two periods (July 1958 to September 1959; February 1960 to June 1961), between which he was part of Cannonball Adderley's band. Several of Timmons' compositions written when part of these bands – including "Moanin'", "Dat Dere", and "This Here" – enjoyed commercial success and brought him more attention. In the early and mid-1960s he led a series of piano trios that toured and recorded extensively.

Sometimes being prolific works against a musician. Sonny clearly felt at ease inside a recording studio, so much so that the listening audience may mistake his recordings as being unexceptional. Yet careful listening tells us that he was not merely a slavish imitator of Charlie "yardbird" Parker. Sonny Stitt was consistently excellent on his own terms from date to date during the period 1959-1962. Throughout these eight sessions Sonny's presence is dynamic and original, whether he's playing alto or tenor sax. In this collection, I currently find myself favoring Sonny's collaborations with Gene Ammons ("Boss Tenors" & "Boss Tenors In Orbit"), particularly "Autumn Leaves" and "Blues Up and Down" (Stitt's most famous original). He was especially discerning in his selection of keyboardists such as Jimmy Jones, Jack McDuff and Don Patterson. My only regret with this collection is the lack of "bonus tracks". ~ review by Jeffrey Tedford

Edward F. Davis (March 2, 1922 – November 3, 1986), known professionally as Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, was an American jazz tenor saxophonist. Davis played with Cootie Williams, Lucky Millinder, Andy Kirk, Eddie Bonnemere, Louis Armstrong, and Count Basie, as well as leading his own bands and making many recordings as a leader. He played in the swing, bop, hard bop, Latin jazz, and soul jazz genres. Some of his recordings from the 1940s also could be classified as rhythm and blues.

Real Gone Jazz reissued seven classic albums recorded in the late '50s and early '60s by tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan: Blowing in from Chicago, Cliff Jordan, Cliff Craft, Spellbound, Starting Time, Expoobident, and It's Time. This is a great find for Jordan fans, but casual listeners would be better served by the single-disc reissues of Blowing in from Chicago or Cliff Craft, both released on Blue Note. ~ AllMusic Review by Al Campbell

A finely engineered, great compendium of one of the finer voices and musican of the last 60 years. This chock-full double album takes you through not just her musically and politically brave career, but in doing so, through the history of what the studios made jazz greats do in the late 60's and 70's in an effort to increase popularity. But in spite of the occasional heavy orchestration, her voice and percussive-Bach piano play rings through. ~ review by Howardskid
