The previously unreleased quartet session with Cecil Payne, Ron Carter and Roy Haynes is face-melting. 

Yes, Justin. Last night I listened to the box again, and that session struck me particularly. It's unissued except for a track that was in a sampler.

I listened to discs six and seven-with Roy Eldridge, Dodo Marmarosa, and Barney Kessell.  I must confess, however, that I've been listening to alot of Woody Herman the last few weeks, and I found myself missing some of the entertainment I find in the music of the Herds,  As Uncle Dave Macon said about Earl Scruggs, "He ain't a bit funny."

Been meaning to revisit that one (the first Mosaic I ever purchased).

Always a lot to chew on in this one:

It wasn't my first, but it was an early one. Interesting that there seems to be a resurgence of interest in Andrew lately. Especially regarding all the new vinyl BN reissues.

I never got that Braxton box. Sorry I missed out. Will hopefully be able to see him at the Big Ears Festival in March, though.

A set I love, because I like small group swing very much. And I never enjoyed it like today.

Just finished disc I Woody Herman 1943-1954. Nice arrangements. I allways have to revise my opinion on Woody's clarinet playing. It's Always better than I remember. But not on par with Goodman or Shaw. Ben Webster's solos are great but to short. Best track: Crying sands.

The sound seems quite good—mostly it was just a pleasure to revisit those two 1963 albums (coupled together on disc 1), which I think Blumenthal rightly contends are in some ways a continuation/culmination of Mobley’s 1960-61 albums. Just got back from the new Star Wars movie and am contemplating a late-night spin of disc 2.

Disc 3 of the new Mobley right now, after having listened to disc 3 of the new Herman earlier. So nice to have fresh Mosaics in the house the Sunday before Christmas!

Disc 4 of the new Mobley Mosaic. Still crazy to think that A Slice Of The Top stayed on the shelf for 13 years before being released.

Slice of the Top is my #1 favorite Mobley leader-date. Great in every way: writing, arranging, ensemble-work, soloing, complete with Lee Morgan — what’s not to love!!

Tal Euro-Mosaic, CD2

There’s a great little bio of Tal in the booklet. Sounds like a great, well-grounded and friendly guy as well as being a guitar genius.
