  1. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    Pre ordered the set. I have one Decca 78 from this set and if fills the gaps in and between the previous sets.
  2. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    Concentrating on the period covered by these 3 boxes (1943-1956): The V-discs most of them are on HEP 34/35 The V-disc years vol's 1 & 2 A 1946 Woodchoppers session (4 tunes) for a The Pioneer Musical Instrument Company in Chicago. Flip Philips demonstrating the sweetwind. They have never been issued commercialy. I could not find information on the sweetwind. 21 May 1954 4 tunes for Columbia available on a Poll Winners CD 'The 3 herds' 25 Columbia sides from 1947 with Woody as featured singer with the Four Chips or orchestral acc. Not his own band. From December 1946 until October 1947 it seems Woody was between Herds.
  3. To the best of my knowlege James P. Johnson never recorded 'Charleston'
  4. Not on the upcoming soon page but on the recent releases page the complete Woody Herman Decca, Mars, MGM 1943-1954 sessions. 7 CD's 2000 copies. This fills the gaps between the Columbia and Capitol sets. Classics got to early 1941. Whith the 6 Classics and 2 earlier Mosaic sets there remains the 1941-1942 period not covered on CD. http://www.mosaicrecords.com/prodinfo.asp?number=267-MD-CD
  5. The Roland Kirk LP set is on last change. The Ruby Braff single is running low. This is the last Mosaic Single.
  6. I checked the plosin Miles Davis site. Near the bottom of the page devoted to this session there is a breakdown of wich music is used at what point in the movie. It states 74:00-79:05 Clarke High hat+brushes (not issued?). I don’t have the movie so I can’t check but I remember vaguely there is a scène with drums only. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a track without Miles or the other musicians.
  7. Indeed don’t hesitate. Chances of this being reissued are minimal.
  8. They did. JPJ went on last chance but got a repressing because of the responce. I’m glad I got it.
  9. The Chick Webb/Ella Fitzgerald, Eddie Condon/Bud Freeman, Duke Ellington big band and James P. Johnson sets are now last chance. Benny Goodman is now running low. Funny the Condon/Freeman and James P. Johnson sets are also on the recent releases page.
  10. Favorite Mosaic Selects?

    Onzy Matthews.
  11. Hank Mobley and Charlie Parker are last chance. James P. Johnson is now running low.
  12. Great news but I downloaded the first 3 volumes. A pitty the Ellington material is not included. But I’m not complaining about more Lester.
