They are easy to spot. High contrast B&W photography on the covers. Particularly good stuff from Ben Webster, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Art Tatum. Some is stereo, some is mono, but the mono is fabulous. Generally produced by Norman Granz.
Audiophile quality sound. "Basie Jam" and Ellington and Ray Brown's "This One's for Blanton" are particularly legendary. In fact, I think I'll listen to the Ellington right now.
