  1. Slightly disappointed in how little Wes there is on this. As noted above, he is on 6 of the 10 tracks, but 2 of those fade out after 2:10 and 2:47. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to have it, the music is great, but I was hoping for a bit more Wes.
  2. I placed an order on May 4th, and got the "forwarded to warehouse" notice on May 14th. Received the Mulligan LP set today. I thought they were going to wait to ship it with the MJQ, but that wasn't the case. I'd also ordered the Mingus. I have to say, the boxes for the vinyl sets are much nicer than they look in the photos on the website.
  3. Shipping today from Amazon.
  4. Sets you wish Mosaic would do

    One of those Ellington 1947-1952 sets on eBay. The shipping makes it a little too pricey for me. That's the first one I've seen with the outer box like that, too.
  5. Johnny Hodges and Lawrence Welk.

    I see that on eBay frequently and wondered about it myself. Here's an older thread on it.
  6. Each of the 5 CDs comes in a glossy cardboard sleeve, and they are in a clamshell outer box, sort of similar to those Complete Columbia collection sets. 16 page booklet.

  14. All Hail Roger Federer!

    He has been impressive, the Kyrgios match Friday night was incredible. He's skipping just about all of the clay court season, won't be playing again until the French Open.
