A good compilation, but in a poorly designed package. Evidently the designer didn't actually collect CDs.

I've definitely saw poorer designs .... and it's height is in line with larg(er) box sets .... but obviously the content - at that time it was not sure whether the individual albums with bonus material would be issued - was the driver to buy ....

That Monk set, music-wise, is just great.

Sonny Stitt, Don Patterson, Billy James, and - Grant Green! Complete session on one Prestige CD. These guys knew how to swing!

My issue with the 3 CD Monk anthology is that one disc never stays put on its rubber spindle. It ranks with the Bill Evans Complete Verve box (with the damned rust outside) and the Charlie Christian Columbia box (4 CDs set in a ceramic like base) as proof that some people have no business designing CD packaging.

Elvin Jones Live at the Lighthouse Vol. 1 & 2 (2013 Japanese remasters)
I prefer Jones' first five Blue Note studio albums, but today these live albums sound pretty good to me.

erwbol -- Liebman has reissued the music as downloads on his own label, Vaju Productions.  Here it is on amazon.com.

Of course, downloads aren't the same as CDs -- but they're better than nothing. ;)

There are too many jazz and classical CDs still on my wishlist to waste money on digital files I can't play on my living room system anyway.
