This single CD (a 1998 reissue) has ten selections taken from the Muse and Landmark catalogs of the 1970s, '80s and early '90s. The ten selections all feature different straight-ahead jazz players, and reissue producer Joel Dorn considers each of the performances ideal to listen to while driving, although obviously one can enjoy these sounds while at home too. There is a number apiece by guitarist Grant Green (a rare track from the late '60s), tenors Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and David "Fathead" Newman, trumpeter Donald Byrd, organist Richard "Groove" Holmes, altoist Sonny Criss, singer Ernie Andrews, trumpeter Woody Shaw, pianist Hank Jones and Roomful of Blues. Among the sidemen are organist Big John Patton, tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, altoist Kenny Garrett and pianist Dolo Coker. The emphasis is on blues and fairly basic material. Although the selections seem almost random and the recording dates are not given (the liner notes are quite sparse), the results are generally fun and fairly accessible, if not too essential.
