AllMusic Review by

As the title suggests, Hip Jazz Bop: Batteries Not Included collects tracks from jazz greats such as Thelonious Monk, Duke Pearson, Stephane Grappelli, and Dexter Gordon. Duke Ellington's "Jump for Joy" and "Black and Tan Fantasy," Sonny Stitt's "Night Work," Donald Byrd's "Groovin' for Nat," and Monk's "Darn That Dream" are among the highlights of this smartly-crafted compilation, which also includes bop from Wardell Gray, Freddie Hubbard, Oscar Pettiford, and Bob Brookmeyer.
