Countless anthologies exist containing material from John Coltrane's considerably prolific 19-month (May 31, 1956 — December 31, 1958) association with Prestige Records. Particularly the all-inclusive, 16-disc Prestige Recordings (1991) box set. As most others are either too short or aimed specifically at one facet of the artist's output, few have truly been able to capture as wide a spectrum as this extremely thrifty three-CD compilation. The contents are presented in a primarily chronological fashion, appropriately commencing with "Tenor Madness" hailing off of a confab between Coltrane (tenor sax) and Sonny Rollins. One selection that isn't found on the Prestige Recordings is "Airegin" from the John Coltrane and the Jazz Giants (1956) get together, furthering the practically indispensable nature of 75th Birthday Celebration for the casual and hardcore listener alike. Entries in which Coltrane was a guest or co-lead include selections off of Interplay for 2 Trumpets and 2 Tenors ("Soul Eyes"), The Cats ("Eclypso"), Dakar ("Route 4"), Cattin' with Coltrane and Quinichette ("Vodka") and as a guest on the Mal Waldron project The Dealers ("Blue Calypso"). Granted, there are a few glaring omissions — such as "Super Jet," "Slowtrane," "Two Bass Hit,""Stardust," and "The Believer." However, all told, even the most scholarly Coltrane enthusiasts would have to be impressed with the variety found on Coltrane's 75th Birthday Celebration.

Long considered a jewel in Verve Records' very impressive crown, Fitzgerald's songbook collections of various composers–a series that was started by the success of this set–are all wonderful, but her natural wit and intelligence was at its most perfect with Cole Porter's erudite, urbane songs. While not as scat-oriented as her small group outings, these Porter sets offer her most realized pop performances. Also, the gold remastering does a fine job of bringing out the nuances in the arrangements, making this a treasure for the serious collector and the casual listener alike. A true American music gem.

March 4th 2018 marks the 90th birthday of one of the twenty-first century’s most influential and prolific composers: Samuel Adler. This three-disc boxed set provides a cohesive overview of his output and includes many premiere recordings. A pupil of both Paul Hindemith and Aaron Copland, Adler is a phenomenal symphonic writer (who, quite literally, wrote the book on orchestration) whose style merges twenty-first century ebullience with an almost classical economy and balance.

Nat Hentoff prefaced his 1956 down beat review of Verve's first Ella Fitzgerald-Louis Armstrong collaboration with a prediction: "Ella and Louis is one of the very, very few albums to have been issued in this era of the LP flood that is sure to endure for decades." Today, those sublime performances, along with two subsequent Norman Granz-produced Fitzgerald-Armstrong albums, are regarded as milestones of American music. A dozen gems from these works are presented here.
