  1. Greetings! Some sets I'd like to see... IMHO, the CTI releases over the years have been a multi-pronged disaster, generally speaking. Some in Japan, some here... most with lousy audio. Would love to see some of the following... Complete CTI Recordings of Hubert Laws (for that matter, complete Atlantic recordings as well - if you're gonna wish, wish big - rigghhtt?) Complete CTI Recordings of Freddie Hubbard (there HAS to be more live material!) Complete CTI Recordings of Joe Farrell Complete CTI Recordings of Airto Complete CTI Recordings of Stanley Turrentine (Hell, why not a massive box of ALL the CTI's?? I know, it would never sell but I'd buy one!) Others: Complete Columbia Recordings of Maynard Ferguson (I believe the Roulette box sold well... my guess there are enough trumpet plays to go crazy for this one.) Complete RCA Recordings of Buddy Rich Sure, mostly '70s stuff but hey, that decade has been overlooked. Perfect for Mosaic. Blessings!

  4. http://www.stereophile.com/content/survivalists-mosaic-and-newvelle-records#17mLVXmvGesGvJP7.97 Interesting article. Some of it i've read elsewhere before but there were some 'new to me' tid-bits that i found interesting. Touches on the future of Mosaic, the vinyl revival and Cuscuna's opinion on the future of CDs.
  5. Trying to raise $ to buy some guitar equipment so I'm sadly putting this set on the market. All CDs have been been played but everything is in excellent condition. If interested I'm happy to send pictures of box, booklet, cases and CDs. I'm asking $300 USD and will pay for shipping on my end (US Only). If you're interested please PM me or send me a email @ walter.gross@gmail.com
  6. Hi, I have about 40 mint Mosaic Box sets (CDs), that I am ready to sell. Trying to figure out the best place to get info on pricing and whether to sell on Ebay, Amazon or perhaps Discogs? Most of them were only played once, to make a copy for listening, and some have one or more factory sealed jewel boxes. Most or all are OOP. I put one up on Ebay, with a reserve. Of course they charge to have a reserve but it seemed like the best idea. It's the Complete Eddie Condon All Stars CBS Recordings, # 152. I want to post where the most jazzophiles will be browsing and buying. I also have another 7500 CDs in his collection, with quite a few rarities and imports. That will be the next step. I have these entered into an excel spreadsheet and in Delicious Library. It would be cool to be able to post them for sale by uploading the spreadsheet someplace, but only if it is the right place. I can attach the file here if that's appropriate and helpful. Jim was a jazz DJ, fan, and collector here in Portland, Oregon, and handled his collection with great care. Thanks much!

  7. Since I can't afford the Maynard Ferguson Mosaic set, I'm looking for available Maynard Ferguson Roulette recordings on CD. Roulette CDs I've found: A Message From Birdland Double Exposure Two's Company Maynard '61 Straightaway Jazz Themes Si! Si! MF Roulette CDs that exist but I don't have: A Message From Newport Roulette LPs ( Are any of these available on CD???) Swingin My Way Through College Play Jazz for Dancing Newport Suite Let's Face the Music and Dance Maynard '62 Maynard '63 Message From Maynard Maynard '64 The World of Maynard Ferguson
  8. I'm looking for Elvin Jones Complete Blue Note Recordings by Mosaic. EBay and Amazon Marketplace list used copies for an expensive price IMHO. Hoping forum members with copies are not as predatory. :-)
  9. First Edition, Serial Number 996/1000 Purchased new in 2002 as the limited edition was selling out. Unopened CDs. Best offer. --- The six Blue Note dates collected on our new Mosaic set are in a class by themselves; they are pure hard bop in the selection and treatment of the material and in instrumentation with Stanley Turrentine sharing the front line with a trumpet player or trombonist equal to him in talent. We're delighted to offer these excellent but overlooked hard bop sessions. The collection includes: • Comin' Your Way from 1961 with Stanley's brother Tommy on trumpet and the tight, seasoned unit of Horace Parlan, George Tucker and Al Harewood. Given a selection number and listed in catalogs, it was not released at the time. • Jubilee Shout from 1962 with Tommy Turrentine, Sonny Clark, Kenny Burrell, Butch Warren and Al Harewood. The set introduces two previously unissued alternate takes. • A Chip Off The Old Block from 1963, a tribute to the Basie band with Blue Mitchell. Shirley Scott, Earl May and Al Harewood as well as two previously unissued performances. • In Memory Of from 1964 with Blue Mitchell, Curtis Fuller, Herbie Hancock, Bob Cranshaw, Candy Finch and, on several selections, Mickey Roker joining in on congas. On CD for the first time. • Mr. Natural from 1964 with an especially powerful group: Lee Morgan on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Bob Cranshaw, Elvin Jones on drums and Ray Barretto on congas. On CD for the first time. • Another Story from 1969 with Thad Jones on flugelhorn, Cedar Walton on piano, Buster Williams on bass and Mickey Roker on drums. On CD for the first time. You hear the word "soulful" a lot when people talk about Stanley Turrentine, and what they really mean is the emotion he expressed through his confident control of every note. Turrentine often told the story of being drilled by his musician Dad. He would insist that the young Stanley stand in a corner and play one note endlessly. "Did you hear it?" his dad asked him when he was done. "Dad, I'm standing right here in the corner," the boy replied. Years later, he finally understood the lesson - that there are all kinds of sounds you can make depending on your attack, breath control, bending, and other manipulations. At a time when musicians began pursuing an astonishing array of disciplines and personal quests, when many regarded "jazz" and "revolution" as interchangeable terms, Turrentine was at the forefront of a group of musicians who believed in melody and song; in extending and interpreting traditions, not in detonating them. While his style and ideas were contemporary, his big sound allied him more with some of the grand masters on the instrument.
