AllMusic Review by

Seven of Impulse's 1996 releases are represented by one selection apiece on this sampler CD. The performances are all complete and they cover a wide range of modern jazz with numbers by Michael Brecker, Horace Silver, Diana Krall, Danilo Perez, Black/Note, Eric Reed and McCoy Tyner with Michael Brecker. To its credit, the sampler gives complete personnel information. A good introduction to these records, this sampler is sure to wet the appetite of jazz collectors who will want the complete releases; all seven are worth acquiring.
