MUST HAVE - despite numerous overlaps with other reissues (at least for those who have been into this side of jazz for some time) and a French share (cocorico! :D) blown up out of all proportion compared to the other countries covered (well, "briefly touched upon" would be a better word).

Not every track on this compilation sounds cool to me ...

Yes, that was my initial reaction too but honestly, I was too lazy to check (among those I already have).

I also would ahve a hard time imagining Martial Solal (see cover pic) as a typical cool pianist, though the alto saxist at the right in the rear looks treacherously like Arne Domnérus (who'd be rather more cool). I just picture that reissue as "50s European modern jazz".
