CD Reviews

I'm gonna knock myself out..Gradually by degree..
Tom E. Oravec | San Diego, CA USA | 09/24/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes reefer fans, this is THE CD to own. It is everything you never thought existed when it comes to reefer jazz and blues. It is a mind-blowing mix that peels back layers of time to uncover these gems of musical wonder. You should buy it immediately. I'm not stupid, though this review may be flippant and unhelpful."
One of the finest Jazz/Blues compilations EVER
Walter Five | 13th Floor Elevator, Enron Hubbard Bldg. Houston T | 08/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The amazing thing about this disc is how few of these artists most people, even Jazz affecianadoes, have ever heard of, let alone *heard*. This is a compilation about Reefer, and this disc shows what the Harlem Rennaisance was all about! This stuff is the coolest, and gives clear precedent for modern acts like "The Cherry Poppin' Daddies" and The Brian Seltzer Orchestra.BTW--The Cotton Club Orchestra that Cab Calloway uses for the version of "Minnie The Moocher" is *not* the standard Calloway Band, and the song has a much more "lush" sound to it with the larger orchestra. Already one of my favorite songs, this version is THE best version I've ever heard him do, bar none."
Reefer songs from the golden age of jazz

"For those that love swing jazz, here it is with a new kick. These are the songs that you do not hear on your normal jazz station. Some of the artists you might know (Cab being one) others might be new to you. Either way this CD is a treat for all that are at the least open minded, if not full on heads. Peace"
