Please try again later. Format: Audio CD. Simply put, Blue Note was and still is the premire jazz label on the planet! This compilation distills the the essence of the finest jazz illuninarires of the 20th century. With a roster like this, it's like putting together a baseball team comprised of every player enshrined in Cooperstown.
If you want to own just one jazz anthology, look no further. This is the one to get. I bought this sprawling box set when it first came out in , and ten years later, I still listen to it regularly.
Simply put, the musicians featured on these discs reads like a whose who list of the best jazz players of the 20th century assembled together on the best jazz label in existence!
If you are new to jazz or a returning customer, this is the set to buy. Highly recommended! Everything about this box oozes passion, insight, taste, understanding. The box itself, the book and its wonderful Frank Wolff photographs, the very good notes that come with each CD.
Do I like every recording? Do I feel that all choices are relevant? I think probably not. Is this really an exhaustive overview? Heck, no! But I forget all that when I take the box in my hands, read some of the materials, listen to some tracks: this is the work of people totally absorbed by jazz, totally committed to sharing their passion.
It's a tribute to the Blue Note label and its founders, to the artists and their music, and to everyone of us who cares about jazz. My advice? Go out now, get your copy! The 14 CDs pack a lot of swing from a great label enjoy. I'm a 15 year old jazz enthusiast and saxophone player, and I haven't really built up my cd collection yet, so this was a great cd to get me aware of the artists out there.
I'd heard a lot of the artists on the cd, but I'm glad I hadn't heard all of them. Out of all the cds I have, this one is probably, collectively, my favorite and I think anyone who likes jazz at all should get this cd. See all 6 customer reviews. Write a customer review.

Then, one sallow October morning, I took a deep breath and lifted my Armstrong box set off the shelf and played Potato Head Blues. As the needle dropped and the music swung and steered, I remembered that, in the film Manhattan, Woody Allen lists it as one of the things that make life worth living.
