Sharing the honors with Blue Note Records, Prestige has been the premier American jazz label for several decades, and this 60TH ANNIVERSARY collection provides a superlative overview of the label's most artistically and commercially significant successes. When the bebop and cool schools were the avant-garde of their era, Prestige recorded Lennie Tristano (with Lee Konitz) and Bud Powell; when hard bop was in flower, they released definitive discs by Miles Davis and John Coltrane. In the `60s, there were even newer genres, such as soul-jazz (Charles Earland, Groove Holmes), free jazz (Eric Dolphy), and the beginnings of world fusion (Yusef Lateef), not to forget the mainstream (Kenny Dorham and the perennial Dexter Gordon). For casual fans, jazz novices, and devotees craving an imaginary soundtrack to Prestige's history, 60TH ANNIVERSARY is darn near essential.
