Muze PNote NYC radio personality/jazz whiz Phil Schaap should be elected the pope of jazz (or at least, of Greenwich Village) for this superbly selected and annotated package. THE DEFINITIVE PERFORMANCES is just that, a remarkable survey of many styles of jazz, from New Orleans to the cutting-edge (then and now). There are too many gems to mention, and some will likely say, "but what about..." and "but THE definitive take on [classic tune] is on [other label]." One would have to be a terminal jazz snob not to be conscious of the scope and sheer good fun of this set. A few highlights: Stan Getz soars with Woody Herman's Herd on "Four Brothers"; Miles Davis's sublime "So What" and chilling "Sanctuary"; Art Tatum sounding like two pianists on the maniacally swinging "Tiger Rag"; the proto-cool of Tony Bennett & Anita O'Day; the epochal horns of Lester Young & Bix Beiderbecke. The ideal gift for your jazz-deficient friends or relatives. It's a time machine to an era in which jazz WAS pop music, and a vivid slab of American history. JAZZ: THE DEFINITIVE PERFORMANCES is all this and more.
