    Voices of the Century: Priceless Jazz is a three-disc box set that contains the individual Priceless Jazz volumes from Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Carmen McRae. These discs aren't necessary for collectors, but each one is a good sampler of each artist's Verve recordings, making them ideal for casual listeners. And any consumer planning to get all three of these discs should get this set, since it has all three for a slightly discounted price. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
