It's Laid Off Loser Jazz Week!

Taking a slight break from abusing the Idaho Department of Labor, Laid Off Loser is celebrating the re-release of four jazz classics this week from the stellar Legacy Recordings imprint.

Last year, Legacy jumped on the vinyl bandwagon and started pressing some excellent rock and jazz reissues on 180-gram wax, and now they're marking the 50th anniversary of jazz music's greatest year, 1959, with four CD box sets that hit stores today.

Look below for a review of Dave Brubeck's seminal Time Out, then check back all week long for albums by Miles Davis, Charles Mingus and Tito Puente.
