Louis Armstrong - Complete Decca All Stars, discs 2 & 3. Surely one of the all time best Mosaics. :tup

Meet the Jazztet from the Art Famer/Benny Golson/Jazztet box. I was resigned to having missed out on this one. Thanks, Cliff.

The Jazztet and John Lewis from the Jazztet box. I'm loving these arrangements - just wonderful. And there's a personal, nostalgic aspect to this box for me. 38 years ago my late mom got me my first jazz album - Ya! Ya! by Budd Johnson on Argo. I think she picked it up for me because it was a cheap cutout and had a picture of Johnson with his horn on the cover, and I had just taken up the saxophone. The inner sleeve had small reproductions of dozens of Argo albums on it, and it just fascinated me. That's where I learned lots of jazz names - I would pore over the sleeve and wonder who John Lewis, J. C. Heard, Zoot Sims, and Red Rodney were. Almost all the Argo albums included in this Mosaic box were pictured on the sleeve. I've been waiting all these years to hear some of these albums.

I still have the Budd Johnson album. It gets played regularly, and I still enjoy looking at the inner sleeve.

Sure wish Mosaic would do a 60s follow-up to that one with all the Verve sessions (and maybe the RCA ones with Davis thrown in). Lots of great music there on the Verves which has never been reissued on cd.

I'd love, and pay, to hear all of that.

In honor of my first and favorite Mosaic Select, which just went OOP this morning. I must be on, like, listen #31 by now. It never gets old. :wub:

Bennie Green Select. I really like it. Green was one of the first jazz trombonists I became aware of - he played on the boxed 45 RPM Charlie Ventura album my mom brought home for me when I was 16 or so.

I first appreciated BG on the Jo Jones Vanguard date with Lucky Thompson. Wonderful player.

Pulled the Bob Brookmeyer off the shelf and realised that although I bought this Select three years ago, discs 2 and 3 were still sealed.!! Rectifying that now by listening to Disc 2- very nice lightly swinging charts. Some excellent Giuffre on this disc.

I pulled the now-sadly-lost Lou Donaldson set off the shelf and am listening to disc one. Curtis Fuller is on fire.

I'm currently trying out the Charles Tolliver set, which I just received a couple of days ago.

Man, I'm not usually a big fan of bass solos, but some of these are amazing! :excited:

Lately it's been the Turrentine set - the material from JUBILEE SHOUT! especially - and the COLUMBIA SMALL GROUP SWING SESSIONS (Herb Ellis' dates played most frequently).
