I rarely do blatantly commercial postings about products, but this new collection of - well, collections - requires me to call it to your attention.
If you are looking for something special for that Jazz lovin' Dad of yours, you might look no farther than a series of "Complete" Albums on CD that have come out through True Blue Music. Who wouldn't love to have The Complete Columbia Studio Albums of hte Dave Brubeck Quartet? This captures the seminal band at its best, with Paul Desmond on sax. Speaking of him, how about The Complete RCA Albums of Desmond? These include my favorite Desmond solo album, Take Ten.
There are similar box sets of Columbia Recordings for Stan Getz (which covers the post-Bossa period of 1972-1979), Billie Holiday, Woody Shaw, Wayne Shorter (which includes 2 new bonus discs) and Dexter Gordon. It's not too late to order and have them in Dad's hands for Sunday!
