CD Reviews

A Good Starter Disc.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Thus far no one has reviewed this disc, so a good word is in order. This is quite a fine disc with a nice selection of Pres' best work, selected by Wayne Shorter. It's a good bargan at the price, and would be a nice gift or addition to anyone's CD collection. I have all the discs from which this set is culled, and yet I like to hear this disc because it's a nice set unto itself. Recommended."
Sweet "Pres"ents for your ears!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While Charlie Parker seemed to blow and wail with an exuberance that was nothing short of explosive, Lester Young blew soft and eloquently with an effortless rhythm that was nothing short of soft sweet flowing brilliance. The "Pres" perhaps made his biggest impression on Lady "Day" and his formative years with Count Basie and the interplay between him and Billie Holiday are historical jazz footnotes. Always a cool cat, never explosive, his art is a joy to listen to, and this collection is a nice start!"
