Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, Count Basie,Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Brown, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, the list goes on of this virtual blues and jazz encyclopedia that populate these tracks.
It comes as no great surprise that some of the best blues comes served up by Muddy Waters. His contemporaries could hold their own, but he was the man when he was on top of his game. With three tracks from each artist respectively, it is just the right amount of music to make a lasting impression upon any listener. It did the trick for me.
This is a rock solid collection from some of the very best to ever perform this variety of music. All of these men are legendary performers, and to hear them all together on one disc is absolutely gripping. If you do not have this CD you need to add it to your collection pronto, if you already have it, then you are one smart collector of jazz and blues.
