Words cannot describe how well this album was put together. This is within my top five favorite compilations ever made. The tracks flow into one another smoothy and effortlessly. Jazzanova's arrangements of these songs apply different moods to the album that transend from melodic to jazzy to lounge-like "chill time" moods. This album is perfect for a dinner party, get together or a summer drive in the country. Plus the mastering on the album is so crisp and clean, that it is hard to believe that these songs were recorded over 20 years ago.

Jazzanova hits the mark on making this album as one of the greatest compilations ever made!

As a fan of both Blue Note and Jazzanova, this double CD was the coming together of two musical greats. Jazzanova, known for their forward moves in the dance music genre, was given complete access to the entire Blue Note catalog and came up with over two hours of perfectly chill jazz. CD number one (called Lookin' Back)exposes the listener to the likes of Bobbi Humphrey, Donald Byrd, Bobby Hutcherson, Herbie Hancock, and Freddie Hubbard. Hubbard's cut, Blue Spirits is simply hypnotic and should be experienced by all music lovers.

CD #2 is titled Movin' On and features some of the same artists with the addition of Tina Brooks, Sheila Jordan and Eddie Gale. I'll admit to enjoying CD#1 more, but both are wonderful in their own right. It is an excellent compilation for one who loves jazz and for someone who wants more exposure to the art form.

A truley great CD. Latino themes running through some of the tracks make this CD great for dinner party background music or just dim the lights, open a bottle of wine, turn the volume up and reflect on your day. A must have in your collection.

I picked up this CD from a friend who couldn't stop talking about it and now neither can I. If you love jazz or if you hate jazz these cds are great. This is just a cool sound. ITs cool its funky and it makes you feel good. They hit the groove at the start and they dont leave. Any one who has a sunday morning jazz time buy this

These songs were mixed together, but it appears the track listings on cd liner don't match the songs as played.

So-so. I can't hear much (or any, really) Jazzanova influence, it just sounds like standard Blue Note jazz, if that's your thing... no hipster stylings to it, just kind of dull middle aged jazz tunes. I wish Jazzanova had worked more of their magic on these cuts!

So if you are expecting something chillout, downtempo, electronica, etc, you'll be disappointed. But if you want straight jazz, get it.
