AllMusic Review by

Wagram's compilation Cool Jazz is a decent double-disc set highlighting several decades of music. The 40 tracks include such classics as "I'm Fool to Want You" by Billie Holiday, "My Funny Valentine" by Chet Baker, "Born to Lose" Ray Charles, and "Summertime" featuring Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald. Also highlighted are modern tracks by Diana Krall, Jamie Cullum, Avishai Cohen, and Ben Sidran. This enjoyable sampler will please any fan of laid-back jazz.
