  1. Christmas Jazz

    I'm a big fan of Christmas music, and am looking to expand my collection of Christmas jazz. I would appreciate recommendations, especially for items currently in print. Here are a few things I either have or am looking to buy soon: Ella Fitzgerald - Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas Kenny Burrell - Have Yourself a Soulful Little Christmas Vince Guaraldi - Charlie Brown Christmas Jimmy Smith - Christmas Cookin' Ramsey Lewis - The Sound of Christmas What else is out there?
  2. I'm listening to Wayne Shorter's "Night Dreamer" right now, and a thought came to mind - a Wayne Shorter BN Mosaic would be freakin' awesome! Now that I think about it, there are a lot of artists, BN or otherwise, that really deserve this kind of treatment but that will probably never get it, just because so many of their albums have been put out in other formats or in other boxes. So, if you could have any artist's work put together in a Mosaic set, who would it be? Who would you have master the music? For me, I would have Malcom Addey do the mastering - his work on other Mosaics has been excellent. Some of my desired sets: - Complete Wayne Shorter Blue Note recordings - Complete Bobby Hutcherson Blue Note recordings (even the 70's stuff) - Complete Walt Dickerson 60's sessions (I've really been digging this guy lately) - Complete Booker Ervin Prestige Sessions (just because it would be nice to have it in a box) There are many others that I could list. Who are some of yours?
  3. b3-er, I just wanted to let you know that this function does not appear to be working right now. It was working like 10 minutes ago or something.
  4. 15 minutes to go on the auctions for the last of these box sets!
  5. Hey everybody, I've got a ton of box sets that I'd like to sell, and I thought I would bring them here to give you the first shot at them before going to eBay. The majority of them are in mint condition; if not, I've listed details as to why not. I haven't been very active on the board in recent years, so if you're not familiar with me and are worried about my trustworthiness, my eBay ID is slbrownhk. I have 100% positive feedback with over 200 transactions as a buyer and a seller, so buy with confidence. Payment via PayPal only--no exceptions. The prices below include insured shipping to a US address. I am happy to ship to foreign addresses at additional actual cost. Since international shipments cannot be insured, I will only do this at the buyer's risk. Please PM me if you're interested or if you have any questions. Thanks! MOSAICS 1.

  6. Less than 24 hours to go on some great music and other goodies. Check it out!
  7. Hey everybody, I'm back with a new round of auctions. All the Mosaic and other jazz box sets I was selling privately, plus dozens of SACDs and other good stuff, have been listed on eBay. Check 'em out, and thanks:
  8. Thanks again to everyone who bought sets from me here. The sets that didn't sell by the deadline I set have now been listed on eBay, with reduced starting prices--could be a good chance to pick up a set or two on the cheap. Check it out: Good luck!
  9. From my own collection, every Verve Elite ever put out. Here's your chance to get 'em all or fill in a hole in your collection. Link: Thanks for looking!
  10. The Stitt went for $21.28. Not huge, but not terrible, either. Might be slightly above what I originally paid for it. Even I missed that golden age. By the time I became aware of and interested in VEEs, they must have been long gone from retail. I had to buy them all online, through auctions, etc. It took me forever to find them all.
  11. And the Collector's Disc went way cheap! Oh, they all sold, including Billy Bauer. Someone's a lucky man--I listen to this one more than any of the other titles. I love the opening track.
  12. Many thanks to all who bid, and congratulations to all the winners! The highest bid was for the Bellson CD--I never would have expected that. Schifrin was a close second, which I think everyone would have expected to be first.
  13. Less than a day to go. Thanks for looking!
  14. Hey everybody, I'm back from the dead with a host of auctions on eBay. I'm trying to dig myself out of the pit of crass music consumerism I created for myself over the past decade, so please view my auctions, take advantage of my lack of self-control and find yourself a deal: My auctions You can also search for my user ID on eBay: slbrownhk I have tons of stuff up right now, including SACDs, DADs, CDs, the Neil Young Archives on Blu-ray, a Total BitHead headphone amp and more. More stuff will be coming soon as well. I'll also have 20-30 Mosaic and Mosaic Select sets coming in the near future. Feel free to PM me if there's a specific set you're looking for and we can discuss possibilities. Feel free to PM me any questions. Enjoy!
  15. Less than a day to go. Thanks for looking!
  16. Yes, I do combined shipping at actual cost. Can be a pretty significant savings if you buy a lot of stuff!
  17. I believe that's all of them. I worked long and hard to find all those CDs, and while this might possibly be my favorite reissue series ever done, it was time to let them go. Now someone else can enjoy them...particularly that Dickerson date. That's my favorite of the bunch, hence my "vibes" handle. I am actually in the process of clearing everything out, and the reasons why probably deserve their own post. One of these days I may write them all down.
  18. If you have good eBay feedback, I will ship outside the US. Thanks for asking.
  19. I've just listed dozens more SACDs and other cool items. Check it out, and thanks:
  20. Last call before eBay!
  21. One day left on my current auctions. Check 'em out, and thanks!
  22. Up with a number of changes. These will go to eBay after Sunday, so get 'em while they're hot and cheap!
  23. I've just listed 100 more items: SACDs, Blu-rays, HD DVDs and more. Check it out: Thanks for looking, bidding and buying!
  24. Bump with a bunch of price reductions. These will go to eBay in a few days, so get 'em while they're cheap! Thanks to all for your interest thus far.
  25. A final bump before this week's auctions end. 2hrs 45min to go. Thanks for looking!
