AllMusic Review by

Vee-Jay: The Very Best of Jazz is an attractive package for collectors who want a seven discs of hard bop recorded for the label in the '50s and '60s. The 93 full-length cuts include several apiece from such hard bop notables as Eddie Harris, Lee Morgan, Sonny Stitt, Wayne Shorter, Wynton Kelly, Art Blakey, and Yusef Lateef. Casual listeners should invest in a single-disc collection from these artists before taking the expensive plunge with this set.
