  1. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    It arrived! I've only started listening but I like what I'm hearing so far
  2. Great question. I think you are correct about this.Here is what the Wikipedia says about the fire from the New York Times article: In 2019, The New York Times Magazine published an investigative article by music journalist Jody Rosen which disclosed that the damage was far more serious than the studio had claimed. The fire destroyed Building 6197, a warehouse adjoining the King Kong attraction. In addition to more videos, it housed a huge archive of analog audio master tapes belonging to Universal Music Group (UMG).[6] The collection included the master tape catalogues of many labels acquired by UMG, including Chess, Decca, MCA, Geffen, Interscope, A&M, Impulse!, and their subsidiary labels.[6] Estimates of the individual items lost range from 118,000 to 175,000 album and 45 rpm single master tapes, phonograph master discs, lacquers and acetates, as well as all the documentation contained in the tape boxes.[6] Many tapes contained unreleased recordings such as outtakes, alternative versions of released material, and instrumental "submaster" multitracks created for dubbing and mixdown. Randy Aronson, manager of the vault at the time, estimates that the masters of as many as 500,000 individual songs were lost.[6] Among the losses were the entire AVI Records catalog, all of Decca's masters from the 1930s to the 1950s, most of the original Chess masters which included artists such as Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, as well as most of John Coltrane's master tapes from his later career on Impulse! Records. On Twitter, Rosen stated that the Coltrane masters were among the most checked-out Impulse! items in the vault, and a source had told him that the masters for A Love Supreme were likely elsewhere during the fire.[13]

    Well I still await a shipping notice and the set. I talked with Scott on Friday last week and he said it should be out Friday or Monday (yesterday). Tom Petty was right, the waiting is the hardest part.

    I'm excited as well! That sounds like a great idea for a Night Lights show David!

    My card was charged. Waiting on a shipping notice. The Gazette said they were shipping the Desmond sets now I hope that doesn't put mine on the back burner. I think it ships fairly soon after they charge the card thought, correct?

    Thank you JSngry. I have no doubt that I'm in for a treat! Hopefully you are all happy with the set as well and don't feel like you just bought it to be buying shit. At the very least, keeping Mosaic around to make these great sets seems worthwhile? Regardless, I always appreciate the comments and insight around here. For instance, the Woody Shaw Muse recording and the possible history behind that being demos for BN? Outstanding! You are all a wealth of knowledge and it is a privilege to be here.

    I decided to order a copy last night. I'll be curious to see how long the shipment will take from today. It looks like a solid set, I don't have any of these albums in my collections aside from No Room For Squares, and I had no idea he made those larger combo albums. I'm excited to have this one in hand and hear the music done the Mosaic way.
  8. Well, I should have mine tomorrow. Really looking forward to finally hearing it and checking out the notes.
  9. I am so excited to get this set. I am still awaiting a notification that it is being shipped. Reading the great comments from Ghost of Miles above has me beyond excited. I am really looking forward to hearing the instrumentals from the Holiday sessions. Phil Schaap at WKCR awhile back (well before I knew this set was being released) spent a couple of his programs playing through the Wilson instrumentals that have been overlooked from those sessions. They were amazing! When I saw this set was coming I knew I had to have it for those alone. Keep the commentary coming as you explore! And thank you for the heads-up on the duplicate CD issue. I'll have to check for that when mine finally arrives.
  10. That is great news! I am still awaiting notice on my set. I look forward to your thoughts once you have it in hand.
  11. Has anybody received their set yet? I'm still waiting on notification that it has been sent. I'm thinking the big open house event Mosaic is having this weekend may slow things down potentially. Still, hoping some of you may have received your set provide some details on how it sounds, etc?
  12. Thank you for this update! I am very excited to finally hear this set in the next week or so.
  13. Just saw the Mosaic website is now showing a release date for this set in March now. Tried calling today but wasn't able tospeak with anyone. Does anyone here have info or heard from Scott about what the delay is about?
