The musicians are legend. Collectively: Joe Newman, Clark Terry, Eddie Costa, Milt Hinton, Ralph Burns, Ralph Sharon, Jaki Byard, Ronnie Ball, Oscar Pettiford, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Freddie Greene, Maynard Ferguson, Marshall Royal, Frank Rehak, Osie Johnson, Dave Bailey, Rufus Jones, Phil Woods, Barry Galbraith, Joe Puma, George Duvivier, Hank Jones, Jimmy Jones, Wendell Marshall, Ed Shaunessy and Kenny Burrel. I haven't mentioned lesser known names and the string sections. Chris Connor is one of the finest jazz singers of the period. Her choice of material reflects her unfaltering dedication to quality and good taste. The selections are drawn from 12 long play vinyl albums issued by Atlantic. I consider this CD set as an Essential for collectors of 50's & 60's jazz. I hope that "32 Jazz" will be able to continue with wonderful jazz reissues of this quality. Bravo!
