The Kings of Jazz is a study in jazz musicology. Jazzanova picks out some of their favorite jazz-infused contemporary material for one disc and Gilles Peterson time travels from the `50s to the `80s chronicling some of his classic jazz favorites for the other. Jazzanova essentially shows us where jazz is while Gilles shows us a bit about where it's come from.

Perhaps surprisingly for the guy who recently did the Digs America compilation, Gilles doesn't make any incredibly obscure choices. His disc consists of mostly familiar names doing mostly familiar material. Gilles provides a beautiful primer on historic jazz.
