    This fabulous collection does an amazing job of not only collating some of the best tracks in the history of jazz music, but it also does a brilliant job of sequencing. 

    This episode starts with the development of big bands, then moves to some of the most important piano tracks of the era, moves on to cover developments in improvisation, and then closes with two uniquely disparate tracks by one of the greatest jazz vocalists, Billie Holiday.
