Jazz Super Hits of the '70s & '80s is a seven-track, budget-line collection of fusion and smooth jazz cuts from those two decades. While there are a few good cuts here -- Donald Byrd's "Black Byrd," Stanley Jordan's "Lady in My Life" -- much of this collection is simply too lightweight for most jazz purists, and it doesn't convey the right smooth mood for fusion fans. In other words, it doesn't suit the purposes of nearly anyone.
