AllMusic Review by

Jazz Originals, Vol. 2, released on the Play 24-7 label, collects classic recordings by the premier jazz performers of the 20th century. Among the 30 tracks on this volume are John Coltrane's "Blue Train," Oscar Peterson's "Learning the Blues," Benny Goodman's "Moonglow," and Dave Brubeck Quartet's "Blue Rondo a' la Turk." This consistently satisfying disc also features great tunes by Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Horace Silver, Quincy Jones, and Eric Dolphy Quintet. While the packaging is drab, you can buy confidently knowing that these are the original LP versions and not dubious live tracks with questionable sound.
