  1. New Verve box sets

    Has anyone bought this set (below) and can comment on the sound? Any mastering credits?
  2. Well, the RCA The Real... set is part of a budget line. Although If You Got to Ask has been reissued as a cheapo package, it was originally released as a pretty lavish box. What's the sound like on the RCA set? Any mastering credits (I'm guessing not)?
  3. I'd be up for this. It sounds like the sort of project that Michael Cuscuna might have rejected because of some of the material. Does Universal own Command? I've tried googling...
  4. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    Thanks for this. I didn't interpret Mosaic's emails as suggesting this would only be pressed for those who preorder, but maybe that's what it means. I want this set, so maybe I should preorder it if that's the only way I'll get it..?
  5. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    Good. Thanks for the feedback.
  6. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    Yes, but what about those of us who would prefer to buy it through Jazz Messengers to avoid a customs sting -- I wonder if Mosaic has considered those potential sales.
  7. It's back. Just ordered one. Forget about stockpiling food before Britain leaves the EU, I'm stockpiling Mosaics
  8. Paul Simon

    I find the stories of Simon blatantly plagiarising as hard to believe as the ones about Fats Waller being the true author of Jimmy McHugh's early songs. Are we seriously supposed to believe Simon doesn't know how to write songs? Or in this case that Los Lobos are better at writing songs than Paul Simon?
  9. Thanks. It must have come and gone pretty fast. I'll bear that in mind.
  10. Has the Jazz Messengers listing been and gone? I've been checking periodically for the Savory but have never seen it listed.
  11. Paul Simon

    New album announced -- with lots of jazz musicians listed, including Frisell, Lovano, DeJohnette, Wynton, Gadd... I'm interested...
  12. Keith Jarrett recommendations

    Great, but how can you bear the noise? It's not annoying like Jarrett's grunts, but genuinely disturbing, like an angry wild animal.
  13. Keith Jarrett recommendations

    Try Masabumi Kikuchi then. Paul Motian's albums with him are rendered worthless by Kikuchi's creepy, unpleasant growling.
