The sidemen that Terry plays with on these albums with are some of Jazz's greatest, Wynton Kelly, Philly Joe Jones, Paul Chambers, as well as many from Ellington's Orchestra. Even Thelonius Monk appears as one of Terry's sidemen on "In Orbit".
The recorded sound on these discs is great EXCEPT for "Out On A Limb". That transfer sounds as though it was taken from an album that was played far too long with a stylus that was worn way past its change date; the loud passages are distorted and the treble heavy passages are also distorted. If you can listen past those passages and into the music and art that Terry is making, this album will be tolerable. The other transfers are excellent: very natural EQ, detail and soundstage (wide and deep on stereo, deep on the monos).
These albums are a great traipse down mid-century memory lane jazz with Clark Terry for a price that's a steal.
My only beef is that these 7 Album collections, for the most part, are either not recognized when ripped to my computer.
Sometimes the info is for a different CD or none at all and Title, Track and Artist must be entered by hand for each CD.
