The Collection

As is standard for Verve collections, this sampler provides a timeless taste of some of the top jazz names from the post-bebop years. Featuring excellent sound, the disc includes the likes of Lester Young (Polka Dots and Moonbeams), Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong (I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm), Chet Baker (Summertime), and Billie Holiday (Stormy Weather).

The vocal-instrumental mix continues it exemplary pace with more gems from Kenny Burrell, Roland Kirk, Clifford Brown, Jimmy Smith, Oliver Nelson, and several others.
Topped off with fine contributions by an all-star crew of sidemen (Hank Jones, J.J. Johnson, Gil Evans, Dizzy Gillespie), Verve Jazz Masters 60 will provide the perfect soundtrack to your next party, whether played during that early cocktail stretch or in the hazy late hours.
