"This album is a rare find. Among the other volumes in the Masters of Jazz series this features the "HIT" singles in the history of jazz. Early jazz originated in New Orleans at the beginning of the 1900's but it was the more sophisticated forms of "bebop" and "cool" jazz that gained the art form's wide acceptance. The artists showcased in this collection in my opinion greatly influenced these styles of jazz. My picks from this album are "I'm in the MOOD for love", "April in Paris" and "The "In" crowd." To be more specfic I would have to choose Coltrane's popular score "My Favorite Things." It was on this record that he played the soprano sax, which in turn did much to popularize this instrument among other jazz musicans. Overall I recommend this particular volume to anyone looking to sample some of the more "revolutionary" forms of jazz."
