CD Reviews

Splendid overview of Prez early work
Johnny Hodges | Clark Fork, ID United States | 02/16/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is not the 20-bit Japanese remaster in the critic review, but another UK pirate disk. Not as bad as many of them, but the thin dynamic range and tubby bass detract from this generous helping of fine Prez recordings from '39 to '44 in a variety of settings. Included are recordings with Count Basie (big band and small groups), the great unsung pianist Johnny Guarnari, the better known great pianist Teddy Wilson, Buck Clayton (trumpet), Walter Page (bass), and Jo Jones (drums). The sound quality is only fair, not much remastering effort evident here. 5 stars for the music, 3 for the audio. Sure would like to have that Japanese disk!"
