AllMusic Review by

This collection represents a polished version of the Boston jazz scene. A wide variety of jazz styles are represented, from vocal to bop to fusion. The anthology does seem to focus on the most commercial, derivative bands in Boston -- every song seems to mimic the style of some great of jazz history instead of charting out new directions, but the result is a very listenable, radio-friendly collection that has something to appeal to everyone.
