This is the companion piece to the compilation "Verve Remixed," which had dance-interpretations of classic jazz tunes. On this album, we get the original versions, and they all shine in their pristine glory. The track listing is flawless, sampling the work of Billie Holliday, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughn, and other must-have legendary jazz artists. The Verve label has rightfully earned its status as one of the leading names in jazz, and they've come up with a dynamite album whose pricetag makes it an appealing bargain. Those who own "Verve Remixed" shouldn't even have to ask if they need to get this album. Both discs compliment each other like mashed potatoes and gravy.
