Jazz "Live from New York" is a special treat for novices and experienced jazz listeners alike. This treasure,is a two CD set which captures some of the greatest Jazz legends performing live in New York jazz clubs such as The Blue Note, The Village Vanguard, Michael's Pub and The Iridium. Featured o­n this disc are jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, James Moody, Dave Brubeck, Jim Hall, The Jazz Messengers, Stephane Grappellijust to name but a few. I've been listening to this CD as if it were an old 8 track style tape, asI have my player o­n repeat. It's really amazing how many different styles of horn playing there are. Each performer had there own unique style and a sample of their finest songs are featured o­n this CD.I also become aware of the fact that members ofthe group Phish must be fans ofJim Hall's music sincethe second track o­n the disc sounds astonishingly like Phish's own material. Enjoy this monumental tribute to Jazz.
