AllMusic Review by

This three-disc compilation competes well with Definitive's Complete 1941-1951 Columbia Recordings. Featuring a similar track listing and good sound quality, this may be the way to go for serious collectors. Fans looking for a more concise single-disc overview would do better to check out something like Ken Burns Jazz Basie collection.
