Aerobleu: The Spirit of Cool is a tribute album to the fictional Parisian club that was a hip spot in the late '40s. The record contains 15 cuts from artists that would have played the club if it actually existed, including Sarah Vaughan, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Bud Powell, Billie Holiday, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie and Django Reinhardt & Stephane Grappelli. It's an enjoyable collection that captures the excitement and vitality of the early days of bop -- a nice sampler for those curious about bop or intrigued by the Aerobleu concept.
