Press reviews

"Manny Albam charts the way for an excellent array of soloists on these selections with unintrusive yet provocative frameworks."

"This discs have unjustly languished out of print for decades... Consider yourself fortunate if you locate a copy of these rare albums."

—Ken Dryden, All Music Guide
