An example is disc 1. The sleeve correctly lists the date, who is featured, tracks and total playing time. But that is not what shows up on a computer when ripping these tracks. Disc 1 actually contains Lester Leaps In, Tea for Two, The Blues, Body and Soul and I Found a New Baby. What shows up electronically are Tokyo Blues, Cotton Tail, Nearness of You/Someone to Love, That Old Black Magic and Tenderly.
Now for the good: this set contains some of the hottest JATP sessions from 1944 through 1953, and the sound is more than adequate. Consider the cost vs. what you get (over nine hours of great music) and you will see why I tagged this as an amazing deal.
Here is what's on the discs in the set (I am not going to include the track list, but if you have a specific question ask it in comments and I will respond):
Disc 1: 1944. features J.J. Johnson and is from 1944. It also contains some excellent playing by Nat King Cole who went under the pseudonym of Shorty Nadine for contractual reasons. Time 52:34.
Disc 2: First three tracks 1944, next three 1945 and the remaining two 1946. Features Shorty Sherlock and Dizzy Gillespie. Time 52:35.
Disc 3: 1946. Features Dizzy Gillespie, Al Killan and Buck Clayton. Time 63:06.
Disc 4: 1946. Features Buck Clayton. Time 71:36.
Disc 5: First five tracks 1946, remaining seven 1947. Feature Billie Holiday. Time 65:17.
Disc 6: 1948. Features Roy Eldridge. Time 46.25.
Disc 7: 1950.Read more ›
