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. 4: 1941-1945 contains 26 Count Basie tracks on a single disc including multiple takes of "'Ay Now," "Avenue C," and "Platterbrains." While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it. ~ Al Campbell
