Not really going through the whole set, but am listening to disk 13 of the Trane Prestige set as I type. Dug it out to check the key of "I Want To Talk About You" (it's in Eb!), and stayed with the disk. What else needs to be said about that set?

Does a 2 CD set count as a box set? 'Cause if it does, I want to recommend a very tasty pack: Lonehill put out a 2 CD set of the three Clark Terry/Bob Brookmeyer Mainstream LPs. Very nice, as you would expect. It omits the info that Hank Jones is on the last session, by the way. And the vocals by Clark are supported by Dave Bailey. Trouble is, after getting the CDs, I was tempted to get the three LPs (which I did not hear when new) on eBay.

I'm slowly appreciating this set but I'm glad I got it cheap as it's pretty repetitive, really. Nothing wrong, but solid enough but not enough variety.

It sounds like you may be listening to too much of it at one time. Spread it out and savor it! :)

I think I agree. I've got all of the LPs that make up this set (except for a bonus track or two, probably) and I wouldn't think of playing them one after another. But with boxes, there's a tendency to play them through.

I'm finding with the Dexter set that about 2 CDs at a time is about right.

Very enjoyable set ! Nothing earth-shattering but no crap either.
