      The Complete Clifford Jordan Strata-East Sessions
             Strata-East began as a collaboration between pianist Stanley Cowell and trumpeter Charles Tolliver, who were forced into "self-publishing" when they couldn't find a label that would issue and market their "Music Inc." album.

      Clifford Jordan liked what he heard and asked the team if they could press and release sessions he had made headlined by Pharoah Sanders, Charles Brackeen, Cecil Payne, Ed Blackwell, Wilbur Ware and himself on dates from 1968 and '69. The session led by Ware went unreleased until 2012, and the Blackwell session makes its first appearance here.

      "The Complete Clifford Jordan Strata-East Sessions," bundles them all for the first time ever. It features the 6 outstanding unreleased tracks, by Ed Blackwell with a drum ensemble and a quartet featuring Don Cherry. Collectively, the sessions are a microcosm of the jazz world in the 1970s, where the power was always on and the ideas were electrifying.

      Unsurprisingly, every track is an original - there's not one standard tune in the lot      "Appropriately this box includes what from many perspectives was Clifford Jordan's recorded masterwork, Glass Bead Games..this will certainly rekindle interest in and broaden consideration of Clifford Jordan's overall career, presenting as it does some unpolished diamonds and previously unreleased gems of a late-60s/early 70s recording period that is certainly overdue for this level of retrospective consideration." - Willard Jenkins, liner notes
      Charles Mingus
      The Jazz Workshop Concerts 1964-65
             We all know about small, medium and large. Coach, Business, and First Class. And then there's urgent, critical, and life-threatening. At Mosaic, we have three stages, too: rare and historically important; acclaimed milestone; and undeniably monumental epic masterpiece.

      We've uncovered another one of those epic masterpieces.

      The set chronicles the essential live performances of this genius of modern music as his compositions achieved a depth and complexity we would come to know as Mingus's most signature work. It includes (on the earlier recordings) the brilliant Eric Dolphy, along with Jaki Byard, Dannie Richmond, Johnny Coles, and Clifford Jordan -- certainly one of the best assemblages of musicians ever.

      Mosaic's box set includes an essay and track by track analysis by Mingus biographer Brian Priestley, an essay on the history of Charles Mingus Enterprises and many rare photographs from the concerts.  This is truly a find worth hearing, worth savoring, and worth collecting.     "Some jazz festivals settle immovable in one's memory," wrote downbeat. "Usually they have that rare and delicious moment when the intensity of a performance, its inspiration, is so overwhelming it sets off something akin to an electric shock... Such a performance roused the Sunday afternoon audience to a cheering, standing ovation at last month's Monterey Jazz Festival..."
