대표적인 재즈 레이블 Verve의 30CD Collector's Edition

LP 미니어처 + CD 보호 비닐
144페이지 소책자 (한국어, 영어, 일본어 해설)
버브 레이블 모자 증정 (수량 한정)
판매가 99,500원 (온라인 음반매장 표준가 기준)

이런 재즈 박스세트 시리즈만도 올해로 벌써 다섯 번째다. 블루 노트와 콩코드, 컬럼비아/RCA, 그리고 Capitol Records/Paciffic Jazz/Roulette의 대표작들을 모은 박스세트에 이어 가장 방대한 레이블이라 할 수 있는 Verve의 컬렉션이 등장한 것이다.

이 컬렉션에 등장하는 뮤지션들은 이름정도는 익숙할 정도의 거장들이며, 앨범들은 앞으로도 계속 팔릴 여지들이 충분한 ‘Best of Best’다. 이정도면 기발매된 세트들을 압도할, 2010년 재즈 컬렉션의 ‘끝판 왕’ 수준이다. 




개인적으로도 추천할만한 작품들이 참 많다. 가장 우선적으로 추천하고 싶은 앨범은 Oscar Peterson Trio의 ‘We Get Requests’다. (비록 AMG는 이 앨범에 별 두 개를 줬지만) 나를 재즈라는 세계에 제대로 입문시켜준 위대한  앨범이며, 최초로 구입한 버브 레이블 CD다. Bill Evans의 ‘At the Montreux Jazz Festival’은 당시에 하도 많은 분들이 권해줘서 감상했던 앨범이다. 처음에는 조금 어렵다고 생각했지만, 결국엔 빌 에반스에 빠지는 계기를 심어준 작품이기도 하다. 이 컬렉션이 다소 부담스럽다고 여겨지는 분들이라면 Ella Fitzgerald의 ‘The Complete Ella in Berlin: Mack the Knife’와 Stan Getz & Charlie Byrd의 ‘Jazz Samba’로 스타트를 끊으면 좋을 것 같다. 찰리 파커와 듀크 엘링턴, 허비 핸콕, 존 스코필드, 웨스 몽고메리... 뭘 먼저 들을지 행복한 고민을 하고 있다. 단순한 금액 부담보다는 이 앨범들은 언제 다 들을지에 대한 고민이 커지는 요즘이다.



올해 구입한 다섯 개의 박스 세트 시리즈로 인해 (중복 소장한 앨범들도 있긴 했지만) 무려 140 타이틀의 재즈 CD를 새로 소장하게 되었다. 부끄럽게도 저 세트 가운데 아직도 50장정도의 CD는 플레이조차 시키지 못했다. 일이나 책은 밀려도 들어야 할 음반이 밀리는 경우는 드물었던 내가, 이 시리즈들만큼은 버겁다고 느낀 것이다. 이 핑계로 내년엔 CD 구입을 ‘정말’ 줄였으면 좋겠지만, 어쩌면 내년에는 이보다 더한 아이템이 등장하겠지? 좀 더 느긋하게 Jazz를 즐기고 느낄 수 있는 여유가 많았으면 좋겠다. 여기에 소개된 30장의 앨범만 마스터해도 당신은 이미 Jazz 초보자가 아니다. 정말이지 올해는 이런 박스세트가 그만 나왔으면 좋겠다.

    당근 사야하는 물건이긴 한데.....Blue Note 빼고 나머지 박스셋은 아직 뜯지도 못했습니다. 이런판에 박스셋 하나 더 사려니 가슴이 터지려고 하네요....좀 천천히 내놓지.....

      그러게요. 앞선 코스(?)도 끝나지 않은 마당에 이렇게 계속 박스 세트가 연달아 터지니 행복하기보다는 고역입니다 ㅎㅎ 올 연말엔 또 어떤 아이템(?)이 우리를 괴롭힐지 모르겠네요.
