Deluxe 4 CD set with 5 hours of the finest jazz in existence.

As the 1960s dawned, post-bop Jazz was finally ready to make the social, political and musical statements previously considered outside its remit. Miles Davies's liberating Kind of Blue, Dave Brubeck Quartet's Time Out, with its unorthodox time signatures, Charles Mingus's Mingus Ah Um, created with a vision that anticipated post-modernism, and Ornette Coleman's Shape of Jazz to Come, on which rules took second place to expressionism, allow 1959 to be identified as a landmark year for the changes that would shake up the musicians and audience alike.

This collection features these four groundbreaking records in their entirety, each with bonus tracks, giving a total running time of almost 5 hours of the finest Jazz in existence. The set also includes a 20 Page booklet featuring rare photographs and extensive notes by noted Jazz author Charles Waring, all encased in this collector's edition box set.
