  1. LF- Masada CDs

    Great news. Thanks. If you'd like to PM me with the particulars that would be wonderful. I'm very excited. I also happen to have a stockpile of empty jewel cases from my days in retail music, so if you send along a jewel case in need of replacement I can take care of it. Thanks again! James
  2. LF- Masada CDs

    I’ve dabbled with Zorn for a while. I recently got Alef and I’m now interested in getting the rest of the titles by the original group. So I’m wondering if anyone is interested in selling small lots or individual titles. I know they’re all on Discogs, but I thought that I’d float it here. Thanks in advance.

  3. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has died.

    Isn't that the truth...

    Thanks for the update. James

    Hi- Just checking in to see if a determination has been made. Thanks! Hi. Just checking in... Thanks!

    I see you posting in the Fleetwood Mac thread. I ordered the box set as well. But I also have the original classics package which includes five of the albums on the set. Fleetwood Mac Original Album Series Once my new set arrives, I'd be willing to offer this to you. I doubled up to get the Bob Welch records, which by themselves are pricey. Just a thought. Thanks for keeping me in the loop too. I appreciate it.

  8. LF- Masada CDs

    It turns out that I have less to trade than I thought...only because when confronted with the notion of parting with something my compulsion to collect and be a completist kicked in and suddenly I wasn't so sure that I could get rid of much, I too have passed a point of reasonably accommodating music and have in the past year or two taken to strategically stacking larger sets and jewel case sized box sets so as to make room for individual CD titles on my music walls. That said, listen and let me know. My interest in acquiring these early Zorn titles remains. Thank you.
  9. LF- Masada CDs

    I'm looking to amass the entire set so if you choose to part with 4-10 I'm well on my way along with having recently obtained Alef. Take your time and let me know what you decide. I'd be happy to make a contribution to the board's upkeep costs. I could also offer up some trade bait, but if you're looking to downsize that rather defeats the purpose... Thank you. James
  10. Lee Morgan 60s Mosaic set

    From today’s Mosaic newsletter: Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan: A Duo Made in Blue Note Heaven The team of Lee Morgan and Hank Mobley was made in Blue Note heaven. Kindred spirits with contrasting personalities, they made an amazing amount of gorgeous, soulful music together in the ‘50s and ‘60s. David Brent Johnson has seen fit to celebrate their partnerships on his Night Lights program. Interestingly, a number of his musical choices were tracks left unissued until after their deaths, which Mosaic Records is revisiting with our set The Complete Hank Mobley Blue Note Sessions 1963-1970. Everything and anything they did together is of value and merit. And a ‘60s Morgan Mosaic set should follow next year! -Michael Cuscuna
  11. Paul Desmond/Ed Bickert Mosaic - NOW AVAILABLE

    Perhaps this is a delayed result of Costanza's hard work on the Penske file...
  12. Black Saint/Soul Note Box Sets

    Agreed.
  13. Paul Desmond/Ed Bickert Mosaic - NOW AVAILABLE

    I too ordered as soon as I saw the email on 4/30. My credit card was charged on 5/3. Mosaic claims that cards will not be charged until an item is ready to ship. I have yet to receive a shipping confirmation. I paid extra for UPS and I have a UPS account which alerts me of scheduled deliveries. So even if I missed the shipping notification email which came from an odd email address, UPS would be keeping me in the loop. So at this point I got nothing, although I remain hopeful, even quietly confident that Mosaic will come through.
  14. Paul Desmond/Ed Bickert Mosaic - NOW AVAILABLE

    I didn't use Paypal but I have this feeling that I was charged before my item was ready to ship. I trust Mosaic so no real worries, just anticipation.
  15. Paul Desmond/Ed Bickert Mosaic - NOW AVAILABLE

    "Thank you for ordering from Mosaic Records. Please note that Media Mail shipping does take extra time. Your Credit card will not be billed until your order is ready to ship." I ordered on April 30th and my card was charged on 5/3, but no shipping notice/confirmation as of yet. I don't mind being patient, but I did spring for the UPS delivery. Ten days or more is a lot of time to process and ship an order. Oh well.
  16. Paul Desmond/Ed Bickert Mosaic - NOW AVAILABLE

    Agreed. I had a shipment from one New York address to another wend its way through Tennessee, Mississippi, and Massachusetts before finally making here 11 days later. 97 miles separated shipping location from my house. I literally could have walked there and back sooner. I consider it two dollars well spent. Yes. I was pleasantly surprised today and ordered immediately as well.

  19. Lee Morgan 60s Mosaic set

    I think that there is something to be said for "The Mosaic Treatment." I have all of the individual CDs but I'll still be inclined to get the Mosaic set. What can i say?
  20. I've only played three of these shows (Winterland/The GD Movie/Dead Ahead). The others are untouched and mint. The box is in excellent shape. Booklet is crisp...briefly looked at never read. I'll listen to the Dead all day...the videos tend to leave me flat. $200 includes shipping/insurance/delivery confirmation to CONUS. Paypal preferred please. Thanks

  23. The 80-20 principle of listening to jazz albums

    I had my iPod classic for Jazz expanded to 768 GB. I've filled it with all of my usual suspects as well as assorted other things that I was once enamored with or curious about. Shuffling by song, album, and artist has helped me to curate a collection (playlist) of tunes that I enjoy coming back to. I import as ALAC files, so I'm happy with the fidelity, the portability, and the options for listening. 18,000 tunes spanning 470 GB. Then again I have many times that over in CDs to also visit and revisit. A good problem to have. So 80/20 seems reasonable but I'm working on changing that up. As FZ said, "Without deviation from the norm progress is not possible."
