AllMusic Review by

Re-Bop: The Savoy Originals collects 13 tracks recorded between 1945 and 1959 for the influential West Coast jazz label. Boasting a wide range of performers, this compilation gathers classic cuts by the Modern Jazz Quartet, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Red Norvo, Duke Jordan, Cal Tjader, Curtis Fuller, Cannonball Adderley, Herbie Mann, and Dizzy Gillespie. The "Originals" portion of the title refers to the companion set, Re-Bop: The Savoy Remixes, in which turntablists like DJ Logic, Basement Boys, and DJ Jazzy Jeff take liberties with these tracks by rearranging them for the digital age. No matter what your feelings concerning remixing experimentation, Re-Bop: The Savoy Originals is a well-chosen primer collection for the jazz novice and a great-sounding disc for the completest.
