  2. The Savoy and Bee Hive sets are last chance again. Probably for a short time.
  3. The Ahmad Jamal set is oop again.
  4. Creating “enhanced” Mosaic sets

    I was thinking of a Count Basie Lester Young 1939-1940 set including all tracks Lester doesn’t solo on.
  5. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    This set is now expected in August
  6. 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.
  7. Back on running low Ahmad Jamal Trio Argo Sessions.
  8. Lester Young Count Basie 1936-1940 disc 1
  9. Abusive and violent jazz musicians

    Mingus hit Jimmy Knepper in the face. He lost teeth because of that and could’nt play for a considerable time. Knepper sued Mingus who said in his defence that it was part of his act. I don’t remember what the outcome of the case was. It is in Brian Priestley’s Mingus biography.
  10. Just announced on the Mosaic upcomming reales Hank Mobley Blue Note 1963-1971 8 CD set. Release date August this year.
  11. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Today Ajax won the Dutch FA cup. Beating Willem II 4-0. No time to celibrate. Wednesday they got to beat Tottenham for a place in the Champions League final.
  12. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Tottenham Hotspur - Ajax 0-1. Not a brillant match but a win is beter than a loss. Ajax has a busy agenda for the rest of the season. Sunday Dutch FA cup final vs. Willem II. Wednesday the return against Tottenham. Then 2 more league games (May 12th and 15th) for the champiionchip no mistakes allowed. And hopefully CL final June first in Madrid.
  13. I don't know. I don't have it (yet) There are no alternate's on it if that helps.
  14. There already has been a Bunny Berigan 7 CD set. This had the Sony and Universal held recordings. His Victor sessions would result in 5 Cd’s. What would be on 17 Cd’s?
  15. 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.
  16. Last round for Savoy

    The set just arrived. No customs charge. Declared value $15 😀. But more important. The number on the book is 1673 of 5000. This is incredible low taking into account that it is from the last repressing batch. So 2000 maximum for the upcomming Woody Herman set may prove to be just right.
  17. JSP did a complete Fats Waller in 5 boxes a total of 21 CD’s
  18. Mosaics you’re still on the hunt for

    Yesterday at the Dr jazz meeting a Wageningen (NL) I bought the Flip Philips Charlie Ventura Verve set for €60,-. I was not on the hunt for this but was on my nice to have list. The Nat King Cole set went for €375,-
  19. Just got an e-mail,from Mosaic announcing that the Charles Mingus JWS set is on last chance. The Eddie Condon-Bud Freeman abd DuL set made a come back. But these are mostly short lived.
  20. The Dial is OOP again and the Bing Crosby set is now running low.
  21. Last round for Savoy

    I revered to this post.
  22. Last round for Savoy

    Just got a shipping notification for the Savoy set. If this means 10 CD’s of academic boredom bring it on. I’m a academic.😀
  23. He would certainly deserve a set. Don Byas would also desreve one but his recordings are spread over too many labels to be possible.
  24. The Eddie Condon/Bud Freeman set is OOP again.
