  1. Hey, thanks!  I would love that.



  2. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    Not that I can speak to authoritatively; this is just a matter of something finally dawning on me.
  3. New Woody Herman Mosaic

    I was pretty excited to get the Decca recordings with Budd, Ben, and Johnny Hodges, but now, after decades of enjoying Woody Herman, I find that I'm very interested in Flip Phillips. I didn't see that coming!
  4. Lee Morgan 60s Mosaic set

    I also have the individual cd's and intend to get the Mosaic set. I find that the collation, remastering, and contextualization makes a tremendous difference for me as a listener. I had all the Duke Ellington 32-40 stuff, but that became one of my all time favorite Mosaic sets for those reasons.
  5. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    I listened to discs six and seven-with Roy Eldridge, Dodo Marmarosa, and Barney Kessell. I must confess, however, that I've been listening to alot of Woody Herman the last few weeks, and I found myself missing some of the entertainment I find in the music of the Herds, As Uncle Dave Macon said about Earl Scruggs, "He ain't a bit funny."
  6. Jazz musicians that started their own labels.

    I have a Sabir Mateen lp (not listed in most discographies)on a private label with a hand colored cover. When I told him that I not only had this, but also found it in Memphis, he was very surprised to say the least.
  7. David S. Ware, Theatre Garonne 2008

    Well, I really like the ones with Marc Edwards and Susie Ibarra...and at least one other.
  8. David S. Ware, Theatre Garonne 2008

    My enjoyment of Mr. Ware's work depends an awful lot on what drummer is on board. There is a whole slew of his recordings to which I never return owing to the drummer.
  9. Spooky Halloween jazz

    Witches and Devils by Albert Ayler Halloween Spooks by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross
  10. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    I listened very closely to the Sonny Berman/Bill Harris session today and liked it better than ever.
  11. Benny Goodman Columbia small groups 1941-6

    This is excellent work! I am going to try to put this together as well. Unfortunately I don't have the mid-forties Chronological Classics, so I will have to use lesser sources. With the RCA small groups and the Charlie Christian small groups thoroughly mined, this is the next logical step. Thank you.
  12. Hi.  Is that Vagrants record good?  I really like Nantucket Sleighride and a few other Mountainous things.

  13. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    I would strongly recommend Soul Station, Roll Call, and Workout as excellent places to begin.
