Hello! I've just listened to the "Verve Master Edition Drambuie on Ice After Dinner Jazz 2" (phew!), and it was lovely. All Verve, tastefully compiled, remastered, but... is it cheating? Am I cutting corners here? Is it the equivalent of biting on a wafer thin peppermint After Eight? In a way, yes. But, I am excused. I've done my homework, paid my dues, got thousands of regular jazz albums in the archives - all played, all listened to intently. It's okay to switch off purposeful playing sometimes, let the compilers do the work for you, even if it means yet another round for "Desafinado". Okay.
Do talk back
