  1. Yes but there are big differences between EU, Canadian and US copyright laws. Years ago Uptown tracked down all owners of the small labels Charles Mingus recorded for in the 40’s to buy the rights to reissue them. So Mosaic should at least go through the motions of tracking down the current owners of labels like Jamboree. I never heard of a blind trust the royalties could be payed to so that if those who are entitteled to the money can be payed when they make themselfs known.
  2. I think I wrote this before. Don Byas 1944-1946 would certainly merrit a big Moasaic box but the sessions are divided over too many small to very small labels. Getting the rights would be a nightmare. From a list a made: He recorded 51 sessions leader and side man. Total 204 titles and 21 alt takes. Off course as a side man he did not take solo’s on all tracks. Labels include: Commodore, Savoy, American, Manor, Regis, Super Disc, Apollo, Jamboree, Guild etc.
  3. A quick count: Decca/MGM 1941-1951 resulted in 159 titels plus 2 alternate takes. That would fit on 7 CD’s.
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Ray Noble & American Orchestra. Don't know if you can call it all jazz but some pretty good music.Especialy the Indian suite I never heard his own version of Cherokee before. And Ray delightfully hamming it up on 'Slumming on Park Avenue'.
  5. The last Mosaic Single Ruby Braff 'Hi-Fi salute to Bunny' is now OOP. Just as with 'Selects (3 CD sets)' you can still click on 'Mosaic Singles' under Categories but you reach an empty page.
  6. Mosaic boxes on mp3

    Strange because this was IIRC the only set they owned outright and would be available as long as Mosaic would excist.
  7. Great transfers indeed. This music lost nothing of its freshness the last 90 odd years imo.
  8. Good to hear it is coming. Even if we have to wait a few more months. Realy looking forward to this set.
  9. The Savoy be bop sessions made a return to last chance. So if you missed out here’s chance. Probably not many copies.
  10. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    Only 3.000 copies but it must still be one of the fastest selling sets from Mosaic.
  11. King Oliver Online Discographies?

    Brian Rust Jazz records is no longer in print.
  12. “Jazz Omnibus” and Duke Ellington

    There is a third volume a single LP with The Ellington orchestra with various singers: Rosemary Clooney, Ozzie Bailey, Jimmy Grissom, Lil Greenwood, Johnny Ray and Milt Grayson. The Rosemary Clooney sides are added to the Blue Rose CD. Pomegranate is on the Jazz Track CD of 'A Drum is a woman'. The rest remain unreissued on CD.
  13. Singer Kenny Rogers Has Died, Really

    The death of Kenny Rogers the country singer (81) is now confirmed on the NOS (dutch public broadcaster) site. Also on the site of the Guardian newspaper.
  14. Because some vendors might still have stock I write OOP. Meaning that Mosaic does not list it any longer.
