Various Artists: 32 Gems from 32 Jazz In marking their third year on the independent label scene, 32 Jazz has put together an impressive three-disc compilation culled from their broad and well-researched library (which now contains the entire Muse/Landmark discography, as well as rare album and television productions by the likes of Judy Garland and Tom Jones). From Nat Adderly to Zoot Sims, this box has it all set! With an educational booklet which lists the catalog history of each selection, Gems includes a number of vocalized diamonds in the rough such as Etta Jones’s achy warble through Rodgers and Hart’s "My Romance" and Mose Allison’s live and lively "It Feels So Good," alongside instrumental pearls such as Hank Jones’s ivoried rendition of Charlie Parker’s "Bloomdido," Red Garland’s pianistic take on Cole Porter’s "It’s Alright With Me," and McCoy Tyner’s "Passion Dance," as handled by Rashaan Roland Kirk (you don’t get much more instrumental than that!). From pianos, horns and guitars to vibes and drums, 32 provides a broad introduction to their label and to the wonderful world of jazz in one economical package.
