Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

6,275 posts in this topic

Not the Mosaic, but I'm listening to Herbie Nichols on the Blue Note version.

The one that is soon to go OOP, at least according to the last e-mail from True Blue, it's on "Last Chance" alert. :rcry :rcry :rcry

Right. I have the Mosiac, also had the Blue Note but sold it years ago. (The sets have different transfers by different engineers and I prefer the Mosaic by a slight margin). I did however buy the Blue Note set for my dad after the Mosaic was out of print, and I'm listening to his copy. Such wonderful music!

beats me why they included that tired Hawkins/Terry date

Am I allowed to say that I really like that session? :blush:

Please do.

I played discs 1-4 of the Bud Shank set yesterday - lovely music, all of it interesting, and some parts of it very, very good!

Looking forward a lot to playing disc 5 now, with Carmell Jones!

Charles Mingus Complete Candid # 1.

I had most of this on individual cds but the Mosaic sounds better to me.

Over the weekend, the Louis Prima portion of the Prima/Manone set, and disc 1 of the Dizzy (+ related Verve dates by him).

Now: the great Wingy Manone portion of the Prima/Manone, almost done with the final disc, the booze version of "I've Got a Note" is indeed fun, he he :)

Woody Herman Select

My copy of this Select set arrived today.

I remembered how much I had liked this band when I heard them live in '66 or '67. I had just one of these Phillips albums on LP at the time. I haven't had a turntable since about '90, and had heard only "Woody's Winners" in recent times. So I wasn't sure how much to trust my memory of this band. I had hesitated purchasing this Phillips set in case it didn't live up to my memory.

My memory was right! Listening to disk 1, I think this will become one of my favorite Mosaic sets!

:excited:

Deep thought:

I actually have the Mosaic phone number memorized.

Don't have the Mosaic set, but bought the RCA/Bluebird Complete set on LP when it came out in 1976. I think that Hampton's Victor recordings include some of the most amazing tracks from the era, as well as some of the most forgettable. But Dr. Jekyll is so good that I'll put up with Mr. Hyde.
