  1. This might not be well known, but Mosaic has/is(in recent years)been discontinuing sets before the licenses are timed out based on lack of sales/demand....if an item is out of stock they will many times do a final restock of 250 or so to fulfill perceived demand/orders and that will be it. It's rare that a set will reach the 5000 sale mark if at all in this day in time(last 10 years). I'm sure this wasn't the case back in the height of the CD buying days in the late 80's through early 2000's.
  2. Well I guess my ordering by phone idea isn't working now.....ordered 6/ product......on a positive note I assume that they are getting swamped with orders......either way it's all good.
  3. Teddy Wilson Mosaic?

    Placed order today.......was told that upcoming Teddy Wilson set will be out January 2018. on the positive note all the backorderd seta will be back in pretty quick succession which will give all of us time to catch up before the Teddy Wilson set comes out.
  4. Decca Louis Armstrong and Hank Mobley back in stock.......remember what I said about ordering by phone,, will get quicker service.
  5. I use the CD new and reissues polls as guides and references just in case I missed something.
  6. Is there any way possible to get these Jazz Journal individual end-of year top 5 new and top 5 reissues critics polls on-line......these British Jazz magazines are ridiculous with there back issues pricing and there not posting these polls online like JAZZTIMES does......JJ wants 17.00 USD delivered, but no quantity discount. I would have to buy the last 8 January Issues to get what I need. Not worth 136.00.....I'd pay something but we are only talking 48 TOTAL pages here.....I have no use for the rest of the magazine. FWIW Jazz Wise is not much better.
  7. Oscar Pettiford Nonet | Big Band | Sextet 1955 - 1958

    Looked everywhere for track listing.....I guess I'll have to wait a few weeks before one shows up.
  8. Oscar Pettiford Nonet | Big Band | Sextet 1955 - 1958

    Well this is going on my short list and will be bought depending on material and when this becomes readily available again after the initial 1st week release on back-order.
  9. Oscar Pettiford Nonet | Big Band | Sextet 1955 - 1958

    How much of this is Big Band ?
  10. If your in the USA or Canada , you can ask for replacement for the box/booklet etc.....I've done it numerous times without any to do that by phone as well.
  11. Alright, let's get back on topic.....we're losing focus here off the main/important original topic.....been to JRM numerous times in 1998-1999........very unfriendly place overall....everybody that worked there was cold, stand off-ish and aloof....they are/were the consummate jazz + avant jazz snobs. Not worth wasting time talking about them. Probably still surviving off of old money.
  12. A word of advice that might work for those that are having problems/delays with there your orders by phone instead of online.....Ordered Eddie Condon/Bud Freeman set on Friday 5/5.....arrived Tuesday 5/9. No Problems. The times that I've picked up the phone and ordered its been a quick turnaround.......the last time I ordered on-line I waited about 2-3 weeks for delivery.
  13. Brett Gold New York Jazz Orchestra - Dreaming Big

    Thank you for posting this......I'm sorry that I haven't in the past responded to your notifications of new and upcoming big band/large ensemble releases as this is what I primarily buy. It would have taken me 3 to 6 months after release to find out about this. Thank you again.
  14. Not to interrupt whatever flow this thread has taken, but does anyone on here know what is the MINIMUM number of copies that Mosaic can print when a set is on Backorder......500, 1000, 250. ???? And how many sets does it typically produce to replenish stock when a set is on backorder.
  15. You picked one of the few old Mosaic's fetching decent money(Maynard, Amos Milburn, Charles Brown, Dinah Washington, Thad/Mel, Basie Studio, Sidney Bechet, Buddy De Franco, Grant Green).....vast majority are only fetching 12-19 dollars per CD on EBay(a lot of below original cost sales on some sets) and most of the older(pre #248) mosaics there are at least half dozen copies listed for sale at the same time.....even the Maynard set had about five listings, four of which didn't sell cause they were overpriced at 7 years ago levels. I'm in at 250.00 PPD on the Maynard set if it ever gets down to that level, last sale on EBay was 439.00.....a lot of unavailable on CD material on that set.
