  1. According to an Instagram post by Mosaic Images the set is due in March. I wonder if it might include Basra?
  2. I have all of this material but I would probably buy it. I think if they do go forward they should release something more obscure simultaneously. "We're proud to release 2 box sets by saxophone giants Joe Henderson and Bill Barron". Or whomever. Tie Joe's name recognition to someone more obscure and people might pay more attention than otherwise. And maybe Mosaic should create an Instagram account or some TikTok videos or whatever the hell the latest thing is to try and reach a new audience. Make people understand that jazz isn't stuffy. I'm 43 and got into jazz 30 years ago by listening to A Tribe Called Quest. There has to be a way to market great music to the unitiated.
  3. I came to the realization a few years ago that I had too much stuff. I peaked at 7000 combined CDs and LPs and I've since got it down to 3500 and I'll probably part with another 500-1000. I have Lee's Live At The Lighthouse 3CD release and probably would've been tempted if Mosaic had done a vinyl reissue at some point but a 8CD/12LP release seems like something that I'd buy and listen to once. But I'm a sucker so who knows? I would buy and listen to an expanded version of Denny Zeitlin's Shining Hour: Live At The Trident which was hinted at as a future possibility for Mosaic in the Zeitlin Select liner notes. I would also be in for the Joe Daley Newport box that International Phonograph Inc. was planning to do. Goes without saying that Mosaic boxes of Bill Barron on Savoy/Muse, Cal Tjader on Verve, and Yusef Lateef's Argo, Verve, Impulse! material would be instant purchases.

  5. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    I've listened to Disc 1 several times this week. I love this band!
  6. Concord also control the Savoy Label Group now:
  8. Ha! I like In New York well enough but none of these deserve legendary status.
  10. Dusty Groove doesn't do pre-orders but you can sign up to be notified when the product goes live on their site.

  12. What's next for Mosaic

    Thought some folks might find this Toronto Jazz documentary from 1963 to be of some interest:
