Intended to be played during exercise and work-out sessions, Family Circle: Get Fit to Jazz is a budget-line collection of classic big-band swing and jump blues, highlighted by Glenn Miller's "In the Mood," and Fats Waller's "The Joint Is Jumpin'," and Duke Ellington's "Take the 'A' Train." Of course, any collection like this will infuriate jazz purists, but for those that just want a selection of high-energy early jazz hits, Get Fit to Jazz isn't bad. And works well for workouts.
