AllMusic Review by

Topaz Jazz--The Box is a five-disc set encompassing the first generations of the form. The collection is broken down into five sub-genres (one each per disc): Legendary Sidemen, Top Soloists, Great Vocalists, Great Bands and Memorable Recordings. Collectors will certainly already have most, if not all, of the material included, but new fans of the music will find an embarrassment of riches herein.
