Best of the best for early jazz

(5 out of 5 stars)
"My kids and I have listened to this CD countless times and never get tired of the high level of artistry and seemingly boundless energy of the early jazz stars like Fletcher Henderson(St. Louis Shuffle), McKinney's Cotton Picker's (Four or Five Times: what a hilarious song!) and the early Duke Ellingtion band (Black and Tan Fantasy). If you like your jazz sweet, hot and early, this CD has the best of the best compiled on it. Since it has no more than 2 or 3 cuts per artist, you can then look for other collections which have more of the artist you enjoy, so this compilation becomes a springboard for enjoying other recordings.Don't miss the hidden gems like "The Boy in the Boat" by Charlie Johnson and His Paradise Band and "San" by the highly under-rated Paul Whiteman & His Orchestra."
