CD Reviews

Great music, misleading package
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The sticker on the cover of this CD proclaims "First time EVER available on CD!" but that's not quite true. Originally released in 1954 on two ten-inch LPs as "Jazzical Moods" volumes 1 and 2, these tracks (plus one that doesn't appear on "Jazz Experiments") were previously released on CD under the original title by Fantasy/OJC in 1995.This "Jazz Experiments" CD actually duplicates a Bethlehem 12-inch LP reissue of the material. Presumably one selection was omitted due to the limitations of the LP format.The earlier OJC version (which is still available), besides containing all of the music, also includes Charles Mingus's complete original liner notes, which are severely edited in the "Jazz Experiments" booklet.The music is faultless, but fans will prefer the earlier, complete issue. Also, those who own the OJC should be warned that they already have everything on this disc, and more."

"I don't know what the last listener is talking about. Jazzical Moods (at least the version on on Amazon) has the same track listing as this release and I prefer the cover design of this CD to that of the later."
