The songs are standards; the versions on this collection are taken from various Verve recordings. All the artists are of the first rank and most of the versions are quite good.

The biggest downside to this collection is that disk three is solely instrumental, which means that it is the music only of Rodgers and not Hart. Although all are jazz standards, I would have preferred to have alternative vocal versions of some of the most commonly recorded songs. There is no vocal version of "Where or When," a major omission from a collection purporting to be "Complete."

If you like the music of Rodgers & Hart done with a classical jazz theme you will like this compilation cd because you will hear familar music by unfamiliar arstists, as well as artists you know and love. It expands your knowledge of artists and their music. This cd is no exception. I prefer the music of Rodgers & Hart to Rodgers and Hammerstein. Listen to some sound clips and decide for yourself- you won't be dissapointed.

This is a nice, albeit uninspired, gathering of classic Rodgers and Hart. Recommended for those who have not yet collected any other performances of these popular midcentury hits.
