Product Description If you set out to create a single anthology that charted all the twists and tributaries of that uniquely American river we call jazz, you couldn't do better than this companion set to the PBS series tracks on 5 CDs licensed from virtually every important label in the history of the music.

When I discussed the Ric Burns documentary about the old West with an Amerindian acquaintance, I complained that the film concentrated on the Lakota, to the exclusion of other peoples. My friend answered that, as the Lakota was the best known native American culture, that was a good place to start, and the audience would then move on to learn about other parts of the story.
I suppose the same is true of the documentary by Ric's brother Ken Burns, on the history of Jazz, on which this box set is based. It is heavy on Louis Armstrong and on the Big Band sound of the Swing era - probably the Jazz best known to the general public - but light in other areas, including the many, varied strands of Jazz in the last 30 years or so.
There is a whole series of albums in the Ken Burns Jazz Collection, featuring individual artists, for those who want to pursue the story and start to fill in the gaps.
It is easy to list regrettable omissions from this set and many reviewers have done so and just as easy to point out how impossible it is to do full justice to a century of music that had multiple sources and spread rapidly to a plethora of sub-genres and many reviewers have done that too. The omission of Erroll Garner is one that struck me, especially ironic as the booklet accompanying this set has his name displayed on the cover! The British Trad Jazz that took hold in the early 50s and is still going strong Chris Barber, Kenny Ball and their followers is another indispensible part of Jazz history that finds no place in this collection.
I realize that this is specifically titled the story of American music, but Django Reinhardt gets a look in, as does some forgettable French rapper. But this collection of 94 tracks, featuring recordings from to , attractively packaged and with good notes, remains a great introduction to Jazz. In fact, now that the price has come down so much, it can be recommended for every music fan. If you're trying to get an over-all understanding of jazz, the first four dics of this set serve quite well-especially in combination with Burns's part television documentary on th subject.
Though it suffers from the notable oversights other reviewers have pointed out, the selections generally seem to me well chosen for educational purposes; the forty-four page booklet that accompanies and describes the cuts provides illuminating thumbnail descriptions; and the order displays pretty well the evolution of the genre. That being said, each of the four better discs in the set leaves much to be desired as a "listening experience.
For instance, disc four-which I mention because it's what happens to be playing as I write this-starts with six very melodic, harmonically rich cuts, all of which work inventively within traditionally recognized musical structures, then follows them abruptly with four dissonance-dense, aesthetically challenging some would say challenged avant-garde or avant garde-influenced pieces, then back to Louis Armstrong's "Hello, Dolly," then to Stan Getz.
Well, you get the picture. This is not a program anyone in his right mind would put together for purposes of musical enjoyment. The criticisms of disc five seem correct, to me. Step one is establishing the volume of gravel needed.
It is equal to the volume of an excavation, and you can do it in the following way:. If you are going to use sand instead of gravel, try our sand calculator or the paver sand calculator. To calculate the weight of the material, you simply have to multiply the volume by the density. Fortunately you don't have to remember the density of gravel - our calculator sets this value for you by default. Of course, if you decide to use some unusual aggregate, change the density as you need; this function is available in the Advanced mode.
Once you determined the weight of aggregate, you can use our gravel calculator to find out its cost. Simply enter the price per tonne or per cubic meter and let the gravel estimator calculate this value for you.

I can't say that I like all of the songs, but I do like the vast majority of them. The quality of the recordings is excellent.
I recall that there were some collections of hit music released many years ago that were re-recordings by the original artist or artists, but they weren't as good as the originals.
These recordings are the real deal. The packaging is not a problem with me. It is a fold out holder that fits one CD in each folding section.
The contents of the CD is printed on the folding section that the CD is stored in. Yes, seventy! Look for the latest version of Knoppix, and pay careful attention to the file names.
