  1. Please send me a PM if you are interested in any of the titles listed. All items are in excellent condition (i.e., disc and artwork are in close to mint condition with no readily discernible scratches, scuffs, or other imperfections) unless otherwise noted. Shipping costs for USPS media mail to addresses in the continental United States are $3.00 regardless of how many items you purchase. I will also ship worldwide for actual shipping costs to be determined. I shall accept payment via PayPal. If you choose to submit payment using PayPal “friends & family” (appreciated but not required or expected), please provide your mailing address via a PM. Thanks for looking. Miscellaneous: 1) Mosaic 16-page LP-sized booklet for The Complete Atlantic and EMI Jazz Recordings of Shorty Rogers – excellent condition with only minimal signs of wear (numbered “x” of an edition limited to 7,500 albums): $11.00 Japanese RVG’s – all of these are in near mint condition (CD, cardboard slipcover sleeve, interior liner notes (i.e., in the form of a sheet folded into a square), and OBI strip) unless otherwise noted: 1) Cannonball Adderley – Somethin’ Else (Blue Note TOCJ-9001): $15.00 - SOLD! 2) Tina Brooks – True Blue (Blue Note TOCJ-9018) – there is one small, light scratch that does not affect play: $13.00 - SOLD! 3) Kenny Dorham – Whistle Stop (Blue Note TOCJ-9171): $13.00 - SOLD! 4) Hank Mobley – Workout (Blue Note TOCJ-9081): $13.00 - SOLD! 5) Ike Quebec – Blue and Sentimental (Blue Note TOCJ-9188): $13.00 - SOLD! 6) Horace Silver – The Tokyo Blues (Blue Note TOCJ-9068): $ 13.00 - SOLD! Other CDs 1) J.J. Johnson & Kai Winding – Jay & Kai (Savoy Japan min-LP; COCB-50414; Savoy 60th Anniversary; Mastersonic 24-bit Processing) – never played: $10.00 2) Thelonious Monk – Brilliant Corners (Riverside RCD-226-2 – 20-bit K2) – the cardboard slipcover sleeve is also in excellent condition: $5.00 BOXED SETS: 1) The Complete Capitol Live Recordings of George Shearing – includes LP-sized booklet, but NO box (Mosaic Records MD5-157): $55.00 Per visual inspection, Disc 1, 2, and 4 are in good condition – each of these CD’s has a fair number of small, light scratches and scuffs that do not affect play. Disc 5 is in excellent condition except for one small area of light scuffing. Disc 3 is in fair condition – it has numerous light scratches and scuffs. I have recently played this set twice through now, and none of these scratches or scuffs affects play – all five CDs play perfectly! The CD booklet for the first two CDs is in excellent condition; the other CD booklet is in good condition as it contains a couple of creases. The 12-page LP-sized booklet (numbered 0797 of an edition limited to 5,000 albums) is in very good condition with minimal signs of wear to the front and back cover pages only – the interior pages are in excellent condition. 2) The Complete Pacific Jazz Recordings of The Gerry Mulligan Quartet with Chet Baker (Pacific Jazz 4-CD set housed in a squat, blue CD-sized binder): $27.00 Each of the four CDs in this set has a fair number of very light scratches or scuffs that were made either when the CDs were placed into the CD sleeves by the manufacturer or when they were removed from the CD sleeves after I purchased the set – this was unavoidable. All four CDs have been stored in separate jewel cases since their purchase and the CDs will be shipped in these jewel cases along with the original boxed set packaging. The boxed set packaging itself is in excellent condition with almost no signs of wear. The 38-page booklet embedded in the boxed set is in excellent condition and contains discographical information, black & white photos, and an essay by Ted Gioia. 3) The Complete Pacific Jazz Studio Chet Baker / Russ Freeman (Mosaic Records MR4-122 – 4-LP set): $55.00 The 12-page LP-sized booklet is in good condition overall, showing wear and some signs of use; but there are no tears, creases, writings, marks, or other significant defects. The LP-sized box is in good condition overall, but the bottom right corner of the box lid is split and frayed – the photo of Chet Baker that appears on the top of the lid is in very good condition. A visual inspection of the four LP’s (8 sides) would indicate that each is in VG to VG+ condition EXCEPT that there are two relatively long, light scratches on Side #1 (one extending across tracks #3 and #4 and the other extending across tracks #4 and #5) and one long, light scratch extending across track #1 of Side #2. As visual grading of used vinyl records has significant shortcomings, I have listed to each of the LPs in this set at least twice recently and this is what I noted: Side 1: about thirteen intermittent small pops can be heard around the middle of track #4, Side 2: about six small pops/clicks can be heard during the first half of track #1 and one small pop can be heard near the beginning of track #7, Side 3: one small pop followed shortly thereafter by four or five intermittent small pops can be heard around the middle of track #1, Side 4: one small pop can be heard near the end of track #5, Side 5: one fairly large pop can be heard around the middle of track #6, Side 6: one small pop can be heard around the middle of track #3, Side 7: one fairly large pop can be heard around the middle of track #3, and Side 8: one fairly large pop/click can be heard around the middle of track #2 You might hear a few other very small pops among the 52 tracks comprising this set, but, to my ears, most tracks sound excellent with no discernible surface noise. I would not be selling this set but for the fact that I purchased another copy of the set in near mint condition at a time when I could afford to do so (i.e., between a girlfriend and my first wife). At any rate, this is a very good “playable” set.
  2. I probably don’t need to tell you that if you’re on the fence about purchasing a particular Mosaic set, you should go ahead and buy it. The CD sets that have recently gone out of print all seem to have held their value pretty well. (I’ll give the set another shot over the weekend.)
  3. I don’t know ... I really like some of Bing’s music from this period (e.g., Bing with a Beat), but I have had a really difficult time getting past the arrangements on this set. At least most of the songs are top-notch. This is just my humble opinion, of course.
  4. Will someone who enjoys small group swing and west coast jazz please buy Introducing Jimmy Cleveland (Emarcy) and The Jack Montrose Sextet (Pacific Jazz) for $11 (including shipping)? Thank you!
  5. PM sent regarding Jimmy Cleveland - Cleveland Style (Emarcy) $10
  6. Up to reflect a "buy two singles CDs (excluding boxed sets) and get a third single CD for free" deal as well as slightly lower shipping charges connoisseur series500, please send me a PM ASAP if you happen to see this post - I have had no luck trying to contact you.
  7. Please send me a PM if you are interested in any of these four hybrid Super Audio CDs. All four SACDs are factory sealed. Shipping costs (for USPS media mail) to addresses in the continental United States are $3.00 for one or two SACDs and $3.50 for three or four SACDs. I will also ship worldwide for actual shipping costs to be determined. I shall accept payment via PayPal. Thanks for looking. 1) Benny Carter, "Jazz Giant" (Contemporary CSA-7555-6) - PLEASE NOTE that there is a small shallow crack (which does not extend all of the way through the plastic) in the top front of the jewel case: $16.00 2) Bill Charlap, "Stardust" (Blue Note 7243 5 41746 2 9, multi-channel stereo): $16.00 3) Gil Evans, "Gil Evans & Ten" (Prestige PRSA-7120-6): $16.00 4) Oscar Peterson, Stephane Grappell, Joe Pass, Mickey Roker, Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen, "Skol" (Pablo PASA-2308-232-6): $16.00
  8. I'm very sorry, Marcus, but I shipped it to another board member the other day. I'll keep my eyes out for you, though.
  9. REVISED: Buy two single CDs and get a third CD (the lowest priced of the three CDs) for free - boxed sets are excluded from this offer. (Buy four single CDs and get the fifth and sixth CDs for free, etc.) Shipping costs (below) have also been revised. Please send me a PM if you are interested in any of the titles listed. All discs (CDs and Blu-rays) are in excellent condition (i.e., disc and artwork are in close to mint condition with no readily discernible scratches, scuffs, or other imperfections) unless otherwise noted. Shipping costs (for USPS media mail) to addresses in the continental United States are $3.00 for the first three discs and an additional $0.50 for each additional additional three CDs (e.g., the shipping cost for 4, 5, or 6 discs is $3.50, etc.). The shipping costs for multi-disc sets are based on the number of discs in the set. Shipping costs are free if you purchase $50.00 or more in CDs/Blu-rays. I will also ship worldwide for actual shipping costs to be determined. I shall accept payment via PayPal. Thanks for looking. BOXED SETS: 1) Johnny Cash, The Man in Black – 1959-’62 (5-CD set; Bear Family BCD 15562): $50.00 The 39-page LP-sized booklet is in excellent condition; the box is in very good condition with some signs of wear along the edges, most notably at the bottom edge 2) Johnny Cash – Come Along Ride This Train (4-CD set; Bear Family BCD 15563): $40.00 The 32-page LP-sized booklet is in excellent condition; the box is also in excellent condition with only minimal signs of wear 3) Miles Davis – In Person Friday and Saturday Nights at the Blackhawk, Complete (4-CD set; Columbia/Legacy C4K 87106): $23.00 SOLD 4) Rahsaan – The Complete Mercury Recordings of Roland Kirk (11-CD set; Mercury 846 630-2): $90.00 SOLD The 56-page booklet is in excellent condition with only minimal signs of wear to the cover pages; the cardboard box that houses the CDs is in very good condition 5) The Complete Verve Johnny Hodges Small Groups Sessions, 1956-61 – NO box or LP-sized booklet (Mosaic MD6-200): $50.00 Disc 1: there are a fair number (approximately 15 – 20) small, light scratches or scuffs on one-half of the disc that do not affect play; the CD booklet and rear cover insert for Discs #1 and #2 are in excellent condition, Disc 2: there are two small, light scratches toward the outer edge of the CD that do not affect play, Disc 3: there are three small, light scratches that do not affect play; the CD booklet and rear cover insert for Discs #3 and #4 are in excellent condition, Disc 4: there are six small, light scratches or scuffs that do not affect play, Disc 5: there are three small, light scratches that do not affect play; the CD booklet and rear cover inserts for Discs #5 and #6 are in excellent condition, Disc 6: there are three small areas of light scuffing that do not affect play 6) Gerry Mulligan – The Complete Pacific Jazz Recordings of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet with Chet Baker (Pacific Jazz CDP 7243 8 38263 2 2): $40.00 There are a few very light scratches on each of the four CDs in this set that were made either when the CDs were placed into the boxed set housing (booklet sized – thick and squat) by the manufacturer or when they were removed from the boxed set housing after I purchased the set – this was unavoidable. All four CDs have been stored in separate jewel cases since purchase and the CDs will be shipped in these jewel cases along with the “box”.

  10. At those prices, someone really needs to buy the Lionel Hampton, Billie Holiday (Columbia), and Sammy Davis, Jr. sets.
  11. I am very sorry, jazztrain, but I never received it even though I’ve corresponded with a couple of other forum members via PM over the last few days. The Brubeck set is still available - I’m sending you a PM right now.
  12. Hi Edward,

    I'll take the Brubeck box if it's still available.

    --- Jon

  13. Dear Eric and Felser, Both sets are still available - I have sent you each a PM with payment information. Thank you very much, Eric, for resurrecting this thread. The only items still remaining are the Bunny Berigan CD, the Dave Brubeck set, the Benny Goodman Mosaic booklet, the Jimmie Lunceford Masters of Jazz CD, the Shorty Rogers Mosaic booklet, and the Phil Woods partial (discs 4 & 5 only) Mosaic set.
