In his "Concise Guide to Jazz" (2nd ed.) (New Jersey: Prentice Hall, 1998, pp. 214-216), Mark Gridley, not one to pull any punches when it comes to jazz criticism, warns of the perils of buying anthologies of works by particular jazz artists. Here are some salient excerpts:

"Be suspicious of titles for compilations. Let's examine reasons for caution with two categories of compilations: (a) Greatest Hits, and (b) The Best of, The Indispensable, and The Essential. Problems for both categories often occur when the compilation comes from only one company's recordings, and that particular company did not record the artist during his creative peak, or during his height of popularity....

"A second set of problems arises when musicians have had several different styles during their careers and a creative peak for each. They may have been recording for a different company during each important period....

"A third set of problems results when musicians made their best recordings as sidemen in the bands of others, not as bandleaders, yet the compilation draws only from recording sessions where they were bandleaders....

"A fourth reason for approaching compilation titles with caution is that sometimes compilers are not qualified for their task. This means that even if an artist recorded solely for one company during his creative peak, a "Best of" album might omit his best work because the person in charge of preparing the compilation was not familiar enough with all the artist's work for that firm.

I love this CD, as it has several Milt songs I haven't heard before. It is from his days on Riverside Records (no longer exists), and earlier in his career. Listening to Milt, you can only feel uplifted but sad you didn't see him in person all at the same time.

I have a number of Modern Jazz Quartet CD's, but I wanted to hear more of MJ independent of his calling card group sound.
His music is most soothing & enjoyuable.
