Jazz For The Quiet Times holds the distinct honor of being the first album from 32 Jazz to top the Billboard "Traditional Jazz" Chart. This 12-track compilation of soothing standards and ballads provides the perfect aural accompaniment to those days when you just want to stretch out and relax. Although no dates are given, it appears that the bulk of the tunes have been drawn from the vast Muse catalog of the mid-70s and early 80s. If you enjoy this one, 32 Jazz has added two more fine compilations to the concept they call "lifestyle jazz." Jazz For A Rainy Afternoon delivers moody jazz to help you "chill out" and (for the fortunate few that have a CD player in the car) Jazz For The Open Road will help ease your "road rage" as you cruise down the freeway. If you have problems obtaining these CDs from your favorite record store, contact 32 Jazz at 250 West 57th. St., New York, NY. 10107. All three compilations: (****)
