I ended up again with one of my favourite Mosaics, and rediscovered what I believe was his best band. The trio with Eddie Costa (p) and Vinnie Burke (b), on The swinging guitar of Tal Farlow, which I think I also have as a digipack.

Did they place all of the solo piano tracks on the same disc?

There are some stretches of solo work in the set, but what I tend to do is make playlists (e.g. The Early 40's Sextet).  At any rate, it was through making a playlist that I was able to listen to that aspect of the set.

Picked Pee Wee Russell tracks from the Beiderbecke/Trumbauer/Teagraden, Coleman Hawkins, and H.R.S sets yesterday afternoon. Great to have this music at hand when reading about it in the biography. :)

You're reaching a good ways back in Mosaic history for that one, Mike!

Just arrived, listening to disc 1. I have some of this material on individual CD reissues, but very happy to have the complete Mosaic treatment, with Buell Neidlinger’s commentary in the booklet... and this is some of my favorite Cecil, period:

Oh, but NOT complete! There were alternate takes recorded but not included. Cuscuna exercised his editorial prerogative on that, and it kinda pissed me off back then, tbh. I sent him a snail mail, which he answered, and he made his case, which made enough sense. But still -"Complete Recordings" either means complete recordings or it doesn't. These aren't false starts/breakdowns etc, these are full takes. I for one would very much like to hear what a "bad" take of this material by this band at this time sounded like, it would be very enlightening, I should think. Train Wreck Syndrome on early display, perhaps?

He got kinda angsty about overlooking some Chet Baker(?) cut, but saw fit to make the call about unissued Cecil Taylor, and I was like, dude, priorities! I car much less about it now than I did then, but back then, yeah, I cared about it!

Did any of the alternate takes show up on the non-Mosaic individual CDs that came out such as Cell Walk For Celeste, etc?

I bought my copy from Buell.  Paid cash. Never asked about alternates.

Now that I don't know. That was 30 or so years ago and at some point, I was like, oh, candid/Alan Bates again, finding stuff that wasn't supposed to be there, yawn. :g

Love those recordings.  Missed the Mosaic but got the Blue Note cd that had some added cuts.  Tried to buy a copy of the Mosaic booklet but they were out of it, so Scott (I think) sent me a Xerox of it gratis!

Well, that was a gate-fold LP, so no booklet as such, but it was thoughtful of Scott to send you a copy of the liners!

I have part of this as a Japanese reissue in 1999, I think. But I'd love to have the whole box.

Indeed. A few years ago I was listening to in the car and then I traded in the car and remembered I’d left it in the old one. The dealer was nice enough to retrieve and send it back to me.

As Gregmo pointed out to me above: it was a single Lp so you probably have everything.
