    These 25 tracks of vintage jazz stretch from 1933 to 1945. You get a little Sidney Bechet doing "Summertime," a lot of Eddie Condon (one with Jack Teagarden and Lee Wiley), truly classic Billie Holiday and Fletcher Henderson, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie and Coleman Hawkins with separate takes of "Oh, Lady Be Good," Benny Goodman's "Fascinating Rhythm," Mel Torm with Artie Shaw, rare George Wetting & His New Yorkers, Stphane Grappelli, and more. This is a great starter set to hear Gershwin's evergreens, and the immortals of early-period American black classical music playing and singing -- and in "3-Dimensional Sound." Recommended. ~ Michael G. Nastos
