The Alternative Takes series is of immense value to consumers of the "French Classics" CD series. These are alternate takes in chronological order of historic jazz (and some blues) with a strong representation of the swing era. The Alternative Takes, Vol. 3: 1941 contains 26 Count Basie tracks on a single disc including multiple takes of "Fiesta in Blue," "One-Two-Three-O'lairy," and "The Jitters." While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it. ~ Al Campbell
