Description by OLDIES.com:

This pairing of Columbia albums (originally released in 1960 and 1962) features Bryant's combo performing the popular dance piece "The Madison Time" (which was rediscovered by a whole new audience when used in the 1988 John Waters' film "Hairspray") and Bryant's interpretation of move songs - including "Tonight" from "West Side Story."

Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Two of Ray Bryant's most popular albums, Madison Time and Hollywood Jazz Beat, were combined on this single-CD reissue by Collectables. Although the sound and the packaging could be a little better, this still is a fine way for collectors to pick up these two records on disc. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

A Great Collection Music Lover: from Colorado Springs, CO US -- January, 7, 2006

For the fans of "hip" R&B flavored jazz, this collection offers not only the title cut and other "line" dance songs, but great arrangements of some "standerds" that are very enjoyable.

The musicionship is top notch and the solos are imaginative.

It's a winner!
