  1. No not Whiteman nor Goldkette. Bix, Tram, Lang and Venuti, Teagarden all had sessions for Victor. Not enough for even a Select but if the Okeh/Columbia recordings of Eddie Condon, Bud Freeman, The Big Aces etc from that period were included it would have been a very nice 3 CD set.
  2. There were no multiple compagnie sets between the Bunny Berigan set and the second Lester Young set IIRC
  3. I hope for the fans that all these sets mentioned in earlier in this tread come to be some day. But as a vintage man I have other wishes. My 2 cents worth. These I one time or another suggested to Mosaic Victor and Columbia 1897-1917(?) Ragtime recordings. This would save a whole genre of music. Paul Whiteman Victor and Columbia Jazz(orientated) recordings 1920-1937. He was not the King of Jazz but had Bix, Tram and later Jack Teagarden (and many more) in his ranks. Duke Ellington 1924-1930 Sony owned recordings. Years ago I posted about this. This would amount to 4 CD’s. If Steven Laster would do this set he will have done most of Duke’s recordings 1924-1946. And if Universal would cooperate and add the two later found takes to the existing 3 Cd Brunswick/Vocalion set it would truly be wonderful. Duke Ellington Columbia 1947-1952. There is still a lot of unissued material from this period. Duke Ellington Columbia 1956-1962. Here also there is still a lot unissued material and tracks that are only available on vinyl. This would have to be spread on several boxes. Fletcher Henderson. A set on this important big band pioneer is long overdue. Henry “Red” Allen/J.C. Higginbotham 1929-1946 Sony sessions. They played together a lot but there are a few sessions worth of inclusion where only one of them played. Apart from leader sessions there would also be tracks from Fletcher Henderson, Mills Blue Rhythm Band and Luis Russell. A combined set with Jimmie Lunceford and Chick Webb Victor and Columbia sessions. If there is space left maybe Charlie Johnson too. Clarence Williams/ Eva Taylor 1921-1942 Okeh/Columbia/Vocalion recordings. This would have to be a split in at least two sets. Last but not least Louis Armstrong Okeh, Columbia and Victor 1925-1933 sessions. Off course this material is not difficult to obtain. Most of it anyway. But at the moment these recordings are not available in away that is legal everywhere. Including only the leader sessions it would amount to 8 CD’s. But in this period Armstrong was also a side man in 9 vocalist sessions (21 tracks). This would mean an extra CD. But on the one hand I would not like the vocalist sessions intertwined with the leader sessions but on the other hand I would not like to miss Hociel Thomas’ ‘Sunshine Baby’ Just listen to Armstrong and Dodds play as if their lives depend on in. If Universal would cooperate and allow a CD with the Erskine Tate, Lil Armstrong, Johnny Dodds, Jimmy Bertrant and the Louis Armstrong 1934 Paris sessions to be included than together with the 1935-1946 Decca set we would have 21 consecutive years of Armstrong studio recordings complete. When there were still selects I suggested a set with Victor sessions that were not included in the Bix and Lang/Venuti sets. Wish that came true: Teddy Wilson’s Sony recordings without Billie. And an Armstrong set with the 50’s Columbia recordings is in the make New wishes are: The Gerry Mulligan Sextet LP set on CD; Benny Goodman Orchestra on Victor 1935-1939; Benny Goodman Victor and Columbia small group sessions 1935-1946; More (Ellington and Goodman) from the Savory collection; Savoy and Commodore swing combo’s.
  4. Just announced on the Mosaic upcomming reales Hank Mobley Blue Note 1963-1971 8 CD set. Release date August this year.
  5. 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.
  6. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Real - Ajax 1 - 4. No your eyes do not decieve you. Bigest ever home defeat for Real in CL. What did Mourinho predict? 99% Ajax would not go through.,Always good to have a safety margin.😀
  7. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    The projeted release date is now June.
  8. Sony Music Cuts Off Third Party Licensing (?!?)

    It wouln't be bad if Sony did anything with its archives. But it probably means that most of the Okeh, Columbia and Victor etc. won't be available again. Makes you wonder about the upcomming Louids Armstrong Mosaic set with Sony material.
  9. Max Roach discs I and II.
  10. Got an e-mail from Mosaic today that if you want the Savoy set you have to order by wednesday the 16th for the final pressing of this set.
  11. Last round for Savoy

    The Savoy set can no longer be orderded.
  12. Mosaics you’re still on the hunt for

    Not searching anything in particular..wouldn’t mind finding the Flip Philps/Charlie Ventura Verve set. Maybe unrelated but I would have loved and bought the Gerry Mulligan sextet lp set as a Select.
  13. Dial modern jazz session disc 1. Realy like the sound on the Red Norvo Session. Will never be a great Erroll Garner fan. This will do fir my collection.
  14. Last round for Savoy

    Fred replaced Cindy.
  15. Last round for Savoy

    Last chance to order extended to Sunday 27th.
  16. Last round for Savoy

    Order period now until Sunday the 20th.
  17. Duke Ellington The Complete Reprise Studio Recordings disc 2 The Afro bossa album. Love this enormously.
  18. What's next for Mosaic

    The Frémeaux series misses the alternate take of 'I can't give you anything but love' . If you have the JSP box and 2CD set you need the Louis Armstrong Neatwork vol. 1 to be complete. The sound of this missing take is not very good. On the JSP set it is the last track on CD 4. The vocalists session yes I mean the blues singers and Seger Ellis and Jimmie Rodgers. I have the Affinty set. I wouldn't want to miss 'Sunshine baby' Not for the siging but hear Louis and Johnny Dodds play. But I would like to have a set with all of Armstrongs own recordings without having to listen to singers that I am at best not very fond of. And this set does not excist.
  19. What's next for Mosaic

    Some of the Okehs were first issued on Columbia. The JSP Box misses the later discovered instrumental takes. And the Bigband 2CD set misses the 4 alternate takes. A Mosiaic I would go for would be 8 or 9 CD's. Disc 1-8 with the Okeh/Columbia and Victor sides. If Universal cooperates disc 9 could contain the Brunswick sessions including the 1934 Paris session. Than this set would seamlessly fit before the Decca 1936-1946 set. The vocalist sessions from this period would ad 3 more CD's. Mostly not my cup of tea.
  20. What's next for Mosaic

    And there is the still available Decca 1935-1946 box. There is no complete edition of Armstrong’s work for Okeh, Columbia and Victor 1925-1933.
  21. Never had that problem. Just played it to be sure. And no problem.
  22. Pops is tops disc 1. 😊
