The Don Byas Collection: 1939-61 is a hefty two-disc anthology that brings together tracks recorded by the influential jazz tenor saxophonist from throughout his career. Byas was a highly regarded musician in his day, with prodigious talents that bridged the gap between swing music and bebop. Here we get a cross section of his recordings, running the gamut from big-band to small-group jazz. ~ Matt Collar
