  1. Indeed. (It sold from my listing on the Hoffman site).
  2. Due to my being unsure of whether I had prepaid for a copy of this set and an unwillingness to start a long string of emails about it as I had with Mosaic about the Woody Herman set I ended up with two copies of this box set. I'm offering an unopened brand spanking new set for the Mosaic price of $140 and will include media mail postage to a continental US address. I will ship the next business day. . . something that doesn't necessarily happen with Mosaic records in recent history. . . . If interested please PM me here or email me at lonjazz@yahoo.com. Thanks!
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This morning I started off with some great Brazilian jazz: Duduka Da Fonseca "Samba Jazz Fantasia." A great cast and recording. Then somehow I got a hankering for Sonny Rollins music. That happens sometimes. Decided to spin two great albums that I listened to on the DCC gold cd editions: Sonny Rollins "The Sound of Sonny" (Riverside Records) Followed by "Sonny Rollins and the Contemporary Leaders" (Contemporary Records)
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Yesterday I listened twice each to two new arrivals, cds by Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and the NDR Big Band, "Ceremony" and "Es: Sensual" The draw for me was that Brazilian cellist/composer/orchestrator/arranger Jacques Morelenbaum arranged these compositions for Sosa and the band, and I love his work. Quite involving releases that I will enjoy listening to many times to come. Very well-recorded also.
  5. Mosaic Apology

    Did you order the two most recent? That was where I and others I know have experienced numerous problems. Pre-orders ignored and more. . . . It's a shame that they are such a small outfit now which is the main reason for issues. Sign of the times.
  6. Mosaic Apology

    I'm a huge Mosaic fan, but there was a definite downshift in customer service and disappointing results. An explanation was welcome.
  7. Ella Fitzgerald: The Complete Piano Duets

    Look for this Decca/GRP cd: http://cps-static.rovicorp.com/3/JPG_500/MI0000/541/MI0000541894.jpg?partner=allrovi.com
  8. Star Trek TV Show

    I've watched both seasons of "Star Trek: Discovery" and enjoyed them.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Miles Davis "Nefertiti" Mobile Fidelity SACD I will never ever tire of this music.
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Disc 11 of "The Complete Bill Evans on Verve." Has "Further Conversations with Myself" and the opening portions of the "A Matter of Conviction" material with Gomez and Philly Joe.
  11. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    I've reported earlier on this forum. The sound I find excellent, it's great to have all these sessions in consistent transfers and mastering, both of which are very good. I confess I haven't yet read the booklet, I'm not into liner notes currently, but there are excellent photos, a number I've never seen before and don't believe have been released before.
  12. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    My second set is in the house.
