  1. Muhal Richard Abrams - RIP

    Sorry to hear this.
  2. This may be interesting for EU customers who get their Mosaics from Jazz Messengers, Barcelona. I contacted them about the possible consequences of the current political situation in Catalonia and they assured me there will be no problems, they will move to another region of Spain if the Catalonian parliament declares independence from Spain and the region automatically ceases to be part of the EU that way.
  3. Just heard from Scott that the James P. Johnson set is now expected later this month (September 2017).
  4. Gulf Coasters, Be Safe!

    Yes, and that doesn't compare with what the European newspapers I read wrote about both Texas and those Asian countries. But I guess we could go on about this all night and never agree, so let's leave it at that.
  5. Gulf Coasters, Be Safe!

    I wasn't talking about the people of Texas specifically, I fully understand and appreciate that they wouldn't be interested in what's happening elsewhere right now, I was talking about a couple of your national newspapers that have a wide international readership.
  6. Gulf Coasters, Be Safe!

    Last time I looked both the WP and NYT have international sections - hardly a word. A very different story in the mails from the Dutch, German and UK newspapers I subscribe to, both Texas and Nepal/India/Bangla Desh are covered extensively.
  7. Gulf Coasters, Be Safe!

    At the same time, at the other end of the world (roughly), there's also a major disaster going on: extremely heavy rains and floods in Nepal, India and Bangla Desh, with the death toll now over 1,000. I get news mails from the Washington Post and NYT every day, but hardly anyone is reporting about that. Hmm...
  8. Why not get your Mosaics from Jazz Messengers in Barcelona? As long as the UK is still a member of the EU you won't have to pay customs charges that way and there are no shipping charges within the EU. Mosaic sets at Jazz Messengers
  9. Sorry to hear this. Another good one gone.
  10. I asked Jazz Messengers about it last month and they told me they would order the JPJ (and the Clifford Jordan). However, they're on a summer break until the end of August and didn't expect to get new stock until September.
  11. Scott told me a while ago that the Teddy Wilson set is scheduled for release early next year (2018).
  12. Thanks. Apparently someone thinks it's funny to make a fool out of me, but seeing who it was, I don't care.
  13. Yes, seriously; I'm not an American and I have no idea whose photo that is. Maybe I missed something, but I also have no idea which Edwards Mosaic set Ed Swinnich was referring to.
  14. They told me they will (and also the Clifford Jordan), but they will be closed for a summer break until late August (it's very hot in Spain). If they were going out of business, they wouldn't be planning a Teddy Wilson set for early next year. Which Edwards are you referring to?
  15. Mosaic plans Beehive box

    Listened to some more Bee Hive stuff and I don't think I'm going to get the set anytime soon.
