  1. Buddy De Franco Sonny Clark Mosaic

    Thanks for the confirmation, brownie, I appreciate it!
  2. Buddy De Franco Sonny Clark Mosaic

    Resurrecting this thread to ask anyone who has this set whether Autumn Leaves on Disc 2 sounds "scratchy" for lack of a better term. There was a flaw on my disc that warped track 1 (Mine) but does not seem to have affected anything else, except for the scratchiness (like a record hitting dust) on Autumn Leaves (noticeable right at 0:23 when he starts playing and more or less throughout the track on and off). Thanks. Posted prematurely because I have the same issue with Titoro (short version) as well. Strange because Titoro (long version) has no problems.
  3. Great deals on box sets on ebay

    No affiliation whatsoever, but someone is selling a "Like New" Mulligan Concert Band Mosaic set for $55 with free shipping. One of my favorite sets at a killer price!
  4. Mosaics you’re still on the hunt for

    I think the CDs are harder to find and command a higher price. I, too, nearly purchased an LP set that I thought was CD on eBay but was able to back out (I don't have a turntable). I'll get it one of these days!
  5. Mosaics you’re still on the hunt for

    De Franco-Clark is at the top of my grail list as we speak. Getting it under three figures is a great accomplishment, ghost, well done.
  6. Mosaics on Spotify

    I already had the Kenton Presents, but I've added Freddie Slack. Thanks, crisp.
  7. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    FINALLY snagged this grail item and am really enjoying it. My entry to jazz was the opposite end of Big Band, but I've really come to love it courtesy of Basie, Ellington, Mulligan, Jones/Lewis, et al.
  8. Mosaics on Spotify

    Yep, thanks for the heads-up. I added it.
  9. Mosaics on Spotify

    Just a quick bump because I discovered that the Classic Capitol Jazz Sessions Mosaic is on Spotify and added it to my Mosaic Records playlist. Feel free to let me know if you see any others that I've missed.
  10. Mosaic website

    I've gotta say, I like the new site. Just having the change is nice, but it's a good clean look compared to the old one and makes good use of Mosaic's photo library. I agree with JSngry that the out-of-print discography section will be very nice to have and is certainly overdue. Judging from the "Great Jazz Artists" and "Best Albums" sections, it looks like they're setting up to be a Jazz101 hub-type site, which is a nice idea for novice jazz listeners discovering the music and label, though I'll be interested to see how that develops.
  11. Just got an email that my Henderson was shipped to the Warehouse.
  12. Got my box on Sunday. Very happy. Great sound, great book (I like Riccardi's very readable prose style and his enthusiasm for all things Louis, though he really seems to dislike Barney Bigard's All-Stars tenure). Praise aside, I have tried to enjoy The Real Ambassadors, but I just can't. Too stilted, too much 60's Burt Bacharach background vocals (I have the same issue with the background vocals on the Dizzy small group Mosaic), too artsy. I'll have it as an artifact, but I won't listen to it if I can avoid it.
  13. I was in the same boat, Hardbop, but I got my shipping notice last night. Maybe you did too? Looking forward to it.
