Best Blue Note Album in the World, Vol. 2 collects nine tracks from one of the most influential independent jazz labels of the 20th century. Boasting legendary performances by Horace Silver, John Coltrane, Lee Morgan, Herbie Hancock, Kenny Burrell, Jimmy Smith, Lou Donaldson, Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers, and Cannonball Adderley with Miles Davis, you can rest assured that the title of this compilation is not an exaggeration. A well-chosen primer collection for the jazz novice, and a great-sounding disc for completist and jazz fanatics.
