Blue Is Too Good For A Mere Comp

(4 out of 5 stars)
"For fans of great hard bop and intricate, intelligent horn arrangements, Blue Mitchell is simply too good for you to just buy this compilation. "Blues On My Mind" collects tunes from three of Mitchell's late 50s sessions, "Big Six," "Out Of The Blue" and "Blue Soul." (In fact, the photo on the cover of this CD is the same one used on "Blue Soul" -- don't get confused.) I have written reviews for all three of these albums already so I won't get into details about the songs here, but suffice it to say the music is classic. In fact, it's so good that if you buy this title you'll surely want to get the three albums in their entirety. So do yourself a favor, skip this one and go directly to the source."
