Jazz on Disques Vogue : The Perfect Collection (1-6)

Sony/Legacy's Jazz on Disques Vogue : The Perfect Collection continues the Perfect Jazz Collection series, but unlike Perfect Jazz Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, which collected famous classic albums from Columbia, RCA/Victor, Sony, and Epic, this new box set focuses solely on an obscure but highly influential label : the French Disques Vogue, a label that imported American Jazz artists (such as Thelonious Monk and Dizzy Gillespie) into France to record new records exclusive to the French market as well as discovering French Jazz talents (like Django Reinhardt and Martial Solal) in order to export them to the American market. While these albums may not be household names like Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" or Dave Brubeck's "Time Out," they are fascinating jazz documents full of gorgeous compositions and virtuosic performances. Furthermore, this box stands as an archival document of an influential though oft forgotten period in jazz history. The material included may be too obscure to spark most casual fans to shell out the cash, but any lover of jazz will find plenty to enjoy here.
Most of the 35 albums presented here were originally released on vinyl as 10" LPs and due to their abbreviated runtime, the compilers of this box were able to economically fit 35 albums (as well as two bonus EPs) onto only 20 discs. Each disc features a main album and is housed in a very sturdy mini-LP replica sleeve that features the artwork of that main album (so sturdy that the discs are very secure whereas discs in the other Perfect Jazz sets tended to slide out too easily). Many of the discs also feature one or more bonus albums, an occasional Bonus EP, and some even feature additional bonus tracks (primarily but not exclusively alternate takes)...
