  • GerryD rated this: 4.5 stars out of 5.

One of the better single CD compilations, with 16 tracks. I deducted a half star because Columbia originally released a more comprehensive double LP, "Solo Flight", with the same 16 tracks plus12 additional tracks. There is a 4-CD set available, but a 2-CD studio set would make an ideal compromise.
