- Some of the most sophisticated original albums of 8222;Jazz with Strings"

- Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Chet Baker, Oscar Peterson, Cannonball Adderley and many more

- Arrangements by Duke Ellington, Tadd Dameron, Bill Strayhorn, Nelson Riddle, Neal Hefti

Elegance and romance, two core elements of Jazz ever since the Swing era, can be found here as interpreted by some of the greatest instrumentalists and the essential singers of classical Jazz. The seminal saxophonists Charlie Parker, Ben Webster, Benny Carter and Johnny Hodges shine as romantics par excellence with these intelligently arranged string ensembles ? the perfect soundtrack for an open fire. 
The generation of Soul Jazz musicians ? Cannonball Adderley, Milt Jackson and Blue Mitchell ? is represented here alongside California- and Cool Jazz with Chet Baker, Paul Desmond and Stan Getz. And last but not least, there are the Divas with strings: Ella, Billie and Sarah! The first ever box-set chronicling the love affair of some of the greatest Jazz musicians with string arrangements.
