:lol: .... 

 

I'm not through the whole box yet - I like the stuff with piano very much, the two guitars album much less. I'll see how the rest is. Funds are very low this month. :(

Yep, the 'Catch Me' material is a real highlight of that set.

Available at Jazz Messengers still, I think, should it disappear from the Mosaic site.

No complaints so far, nice clear sound - having said that, I haven't tried comparing against the Arista 2LP sets (which I will probably do for the Dexter stuff). I like the booklet with this one - with the excellent introductory essay on Teddy Reig. What a mark that guy made on the world of music !  Too bad there weren't any Savoy session photos but I guess Mr Lubinsky didn't believe in all that..

encouraging ,  I think there have been some negative comments about the sound on this and the Dial set ( which I don't have either). Music on both will be great and I have loads of it on 2LP sets and a few CDs and even a very few original Savoy 78s

I've been listening to both sets and so far, the view is positive. Don't have other CD sources to compare with but the sound is pretty clear, considering this is 70 year old music (gasp) and it is great to have it all compiled in archival sets. I think they did a pretty good job ! (stands back awaiting flame-out response..:o).

The music, of course, on both sets - is historic.

Just run a comparison between LP 1 track 2 'Blow Mr Dexter' from the Arista 2LP set and the same track on the Moaic set. There's no question that the sound of Dexter comes across in the Mosaic as more in focus and with a 'bigger' sound. Noticed though that there was what sounded to be a very short duration drop off on the Mosaic just before the piano solo - tape deterioration perhaps? All in all though I prefer the sound of the Mosaic, although the Lps are no slouch.
