‘This is like the discovery of a bonanza of previously unknown manuscripts of plays by William Shakespeare.’ —Nat Hentoff, Wall Street Journal
‘It is not too early to make your wish list for Christmas, and these discs should be on the very tip top. Sold individually, or together with a bonus DVD, this collection of music from modern jazz’s golden era is a true revelation. All of the discs run from 60–120 minutes and each contains a very informative booklet. Very little of this stuff has seen the light of day before, and all of it is absolutely essential, both musically and visually.’ (All About Jazz on Jazz Icons Series 2)
‘Jazz Icons began scouring for the original tapes of these programs and has been restoring the audio and video quality. Additionally, they’re handsomely packaged, containing 20–30 page booklets with informed essays and commentary about artists and the individual broadcasts. Jazz Icon’s third series contains a number of gems…There are plenty of highlights.’ (All About Jazz on Jazz Icons Series 3
