The Alternative Takes, Vol. 2: 1938-1945 Review

by Al Campbell

This series is of immense value to consumers of the French Classics CD series. These are alternate takes, in chronological order, of historic jazz (and some blues), with a strong representation of the swing era. Vol. 2: 1938-1945 -- The Alternative Takes, contains 24 Teddy Wilson tracks on a single disc, including multiple takes of "China Boy," "Loch Lomond," and "Tiger Rag." While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it.
