AllMusic Review by

Madacy's 20 Best of Jazz is geared toward the curious novice. These artists represent diverse eras of jazz ranging from legendary instrumentalists Charlie Parker and Miles Davis; to vocalists Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, and Tony Bennett; to bandleaders Count Basie and Lionel Hampton; and to latter-day stylists Chick Corea, Jean-Luc Ponty, and George Benson. Considering the glut of quality jazz anthologies available on major jazz labels like Savoy, Prestige, or Blue Note, don't pay anything above a bargain bin price for this disc.
