Various Artists (10 featured Artists)

These 10 individually sold CDs when merged together may be among the most comprehensive and historically important discs to be released this year. Each disc is completely re-mastered and each CD contains over 60 minutes of music. As if that isn't enough, the record company has also lowered the prices of these sonically brilliant CDs to make them accessible for anyone's budget.

Each of the 10 compact discs features a major jazz artist or ensemble from the previous century. I've been listening to these tantalizing discs for the last week and my feet are still tapping to the same wonderful sounds. The artists / bands featured include: Dizzy Gillespie, Gerry Mulligan Quartet with Chet Baker, Modern Jazz Quartet, Earl 'Fatha' Hines, Charlie "the Bird" Parker, Coleman Hawkins, Stan Getz, Fats Walker, Miles Davis and Montreal's own Oscar Peterson.

These releases fit in perfectly with all the Jazz festivals popping up throughout North America and abroad. Whether you're a seasoned jazz connoisseur or someone just trying to get acquainted with Jazz, this multiple offering will not disappoint. The masters of Jazz are represented here alongside some of their most notable compositions. Make sure to look for the shimmering blue CD cover with the silver 'styling' silver images of the musicians embossed on the front cover. Rejoice; this wonderful set of CDs will surely enhance your musical quotient for the summer.
