Although it's a little skimpy, Jazz and Blues Collection is a good, basic collection of Mahalia Jackson's best, featuring classics tracks, including "We Shall Overcome," "Holding My Saviour's Hand," and other. There are more comprehensive collections on the market, but novices on a strict budget will find this quite useful.

The third of three sets released by Pablo from Milt Jackson's engagement at Ronnie Scott's Club in London in 1982 (this CD first came out in 1991) lives up to its title. The great vibraphonist, pianist Monty Alexander, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Mickey Roker play two standards, the leader's "Used to Be Jackson" and six songs associated with Duke Ellington. The music swings hard, Alexander competes with Bags for solo honors and the music should please all straightahead jazz fans.

This CD (a straight reissue of the original LP) features a rather notable pianoless combo: vibraphonist Milt Jackson, guitarist Joe Pass, and bassist Ray Brown. These three masterful players recorded together in many settings during the Pablo years, but only this once as a trio. The colorful repertoire (which ranges from "The Pink Panther" and "Blue Bossa" to "Nuages" and "Come Sunday") acts as a device for the musicians to construct some brilliant bop-based solos.

Pianist Oscar Peterson joins up with his old friends, vibraphonist Milt Jackson and bassist Ray Brown, in addition to his drummer of the period, Louis Hayes, for a particularly enjoyable outing. After a throwaway version of the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," the all-star quartet performs Jackson's title cut, Benny Carter's ballad "Dream of You," and… More four standards. Although not up to the excitement of Peterson's best Pablo recordings of the 1970s, this is an enjoyable album. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

Before Milt Jackson, there were only two major vibraphonists: Lionel Hampton and Red Norvo. Jackson soon surpassed both of them in significance and, despite the rise of other players (including Bobby Hutcherson and Gary Burton), still won the popularity polls throughout the decades. Jackson (or "Bags" as he was long called) was at the top of his field for 50 years, playing bop, blues, and ballads with equal skill and sensitivity.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. With Bobby Jaspar (flute) and Frank Wess (flute). This album is top-notch. Piano is by Tommy Flanagan or Hank Jones, and Kenny Burrell plays guitar on the whole album. Tracks include "Ghana", "Connie's Blues", "Sandy", "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" and "Bag's New Groove". I have a large collection of Modern Jazz Quartet and other recordings that feature Milt as leader, co-leader and sideman, but this is among my favorites. One reason I like this album so much is the way vibraphones and flutes complement one another in the arrangements. Another reason is I am a fan of the great Belgian flautist Bobby Jaspar who is on two tracks.

Features 24 bit digital remastering. Comes with a mini description. Ballads & Blues is an album by American jazz vibraphonist Milt Jackson featuring performances recorded in 1956 and released on the Atlantic label. The unassuming title of this compilation understates the fact that Milt Jackson is a master of ballad and blues forms, and an inspired collaborator when working flautists.

Plenty, Plenty Soul is vibraphonist Milt Jackon's 1957 studio album under Atlantic Records. The record features a nine-piece group that is highlighted by the contributions of the exuberant altoist Cannonball Adderley and tenor-saxophonist Lucky Thompson. With pianist Horace Silver helping out, these all-star dates still sound fresh and enthusiastic decades later.

Less heralded than their collaboration with Thelonious Monk (as documented on Bags' Groove and Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants), this August 5, 1955 session with vibraphonist Milt Jackson was Davis' last all-star collaboration before the formation of his first classic quintet…
