British label See for Miles continues its high-quality EP Collection series with a fine look at smooth jump blues star Earl Bostic's prime material. Focusing on the alto saxophonist's circa-1950 work, the 26-track mix includes several complete EP sets with plenty of hits ("Flamingo," "Cherokee") and "B-side" nuggets ("Wrap It Up," "Cracked Ice"). These primarily were released by R&B indie King and feature such contemporary and future jazz stars as Blue Mitchell, Benny Golson, Teddy Edwards, and Jimmy Cobb. Whether sweet ballad or honking swinger, Bostic is all tempered power and polished blowing on this essential release.
