    Liner Note Authors: Billy Crystal; Ashley Kahn.
    At first glance, a CD of jazz tracks handpicked by comedian/actor Billy Crystal may seem an odd bird. However, given that Crystal's uncle, Commodore Records founder Milt Gabler, produced most of the cuts included here, it actually makes more sense than many similar-themed albums with tracks picked by musicians. Thanks to the family connection, Crystal grew up surrounded by famous jazz musicians and developed a life long passion for the music. Included here are such iconic tracks as Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit," Lionel Hampton's "Flying Home," Louis Jordan's "Choo Choo Ch' Boogie," and others. While many of these tracks are available on other compilations, given the importance of Gabler to the developement and documentation of jazz, Billy Crystal Presents: The Milt Gabler Story works as a heartfelt and swinging tribute to a man and the music he loved. ~ Matt Collar
