Vee-Jay: The Very Best of Jazz, Vol. 5 is an attractive package featuring the spirited hard bop that was recorded for the label in the '50s and '60s. The 15 cuts include such hard bop notables as Wayne Shorter, Lee Morgan, Eddie Harris, Sonny Stitt, Yusef Lateef, Wynton Kelly, and Art Blakey. Casual listeners will enjoy any of the five-volume, single-disc, budget collections from this series on Collectables.
