“A most savory and consumer-friendly clutch of fresh compilations…a top-of-the-ladder cast….rewarding jazz without compromise.” — Dr. Herb   Wong, Jazz Educators Journal

“…very moving, emotionally poignant…This is a beautiful album.”Jeanette Housner, Victory Review

To the younger generations who never got to see Coltrane, Bird or Miles, the current jazz masters are the true link to the great historical figures. From Benny Golson and Billy Taylor, to Joanne Brackeen and David Leibman, to Randy & Michael Brecker, Pat Metheny and Dave Holland – all of whom have played with the Great Ones – they now carry the torch into the future. Even though we can choose to look back, Jazz can only move forward. The Stars Of Jazz Volume 1 is proof that the future is for us to hear, right now.
