AllMusic Review by

Rykodisc has acquired Tradition's catalog, which is good news for folk and jazz fans. This sampler, drawn from the third wave of reissues, includes cuts from humorist Oscar Brand, the Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem, Seamus Ennis, Ewan McColl & A.L. Lloyd, westerner Ed McCurdy, Stan Getz, Coleman Hawkins, Dizzy Gillespie, Earl "Fatha" Hines, Meade "Lux" Lewis and the modestly titled ensemble the World's Greatest Jazz Band. A solid introduction to part of the Tradition catalog, with an especially strong showing in the folk music area. Well worth the few bucks Rykodisc is asking.
