Jazz Icons "I can't say enough about the presentation of these DVDs. Not only have the producers gotten the best possible picture and sound from the original films and videotapes, but they've packaged them with taste and tender loving care. The accompanying booklets are well worth reading; each one is filled with great photos and eloquent liner notes" -Leonard Maltin

Coltrane Side Steps "Included is the masterpiece Tenor Madness, where Coltrane and Sonny Rollins go head-to-head and battle it out... purchase of Side Steps can be considered a steal, and would warrant purchase of extra copies for friends as upcoming Christmas gifts. This is classic mainstream Coltrane and belongs in every serious jazz fan's collection, especially with the primo packaging provided." -Audiophile Audition

Carla Bley Christmas "An album that's as reverentially in the spirit of the season as it gets, while being musically deep enough to fit within her substantial discography... the arrangements and playing are so good that Carla's Christmas Carols transcends the season for which it's intended; an album that will also bring more than a little welcome cool to the heat of the summer." -All About Jazz
