Lou Donaldson Mosaic

I haven't purchased a new Mosaic set in several weeks. I believe I'm in the mood to get my copy of the Lou Donaldson box.

Tee hee hee. :party:

I'm a big Lou fan. Good, fun, straight-ahead jazz. Nothing fancy. As Lou would say, "No fusion, no con-fusion."

C'mon! Tell me more of why I need to get this set or why I don't.

Feck. :P

Yes. This one is the first on my Mosaics to buy list.

Your first line above makes it sound as if you buy a Mosaic every week.

True or just me reading too much into it? :crazy::cool:

There's a big fan of Mosaic sets over at the other joint. Why don't you send him a request for a detailed cost-benefits analysis. It's FOC! :cool:

the main reason I'm not getting it is that I have at least 2 or 3 of the sessions which were released on individual CD's....can't remember which ones but I can't buy a box of which I have at least half on CD already...

No, that's rational talk--if he wants to get with the program, he needs to go crazy. :crazy:

I've held off buying the individual LPs and CDs of this one just so that I can get the Donaldson set..

Worth it just to listen to Midnight Sun all over again in my view. I had most of the cds but flogged them for the box set as it was a real treat

Do not hesitate

BUY BUY

er bye!

Same here! I even had the one single disc I bought, "On the Sunny Side", on my sale-pile (but put it back in the shelf again)... never came around picking this one up, but I know I will do so, latest once it runs low!

I stand with my original opinion... buy the individual CDs... that are in print...

To me... I'm much more interested in Mosaics where most/all of the stuff has never come out in CD and/or is not likely to come out on individual CDs.....

(e.g., the Sonny Sitt set, Horace Parlan....etc.)

I vote - say your $$$ for another set... :)

TraneMonk, the Parlan is a bad example, the Stitt a good one, for your purposes!

Rolf, yes, never even a TOCJ!

I guess I'd better get this set sooner rather than later...not only for MS, but for Blues Walk -- one that never quite clicked (well, except for 'Callin' all Cats') so I ditched it about 5 years back. After reading some LD interview over at AAJ awhile back, I figured it might make sense to give it another listen. I remember that he was all fired up about 'Blues Walk'...said it's his only perfect recording and one that he listens to quite often in his car while cruising around. I thought that was a hoot....always wonder how many of these guys actually listen to their old stuff and get all giddy over it. That's nice.

I'm not crazy about the sound on this set, but the music is great; I like the stuff with Foster, he and Lou were combined something really cool!

I fully agree. To my ears this is one of Ron McMaster's worst remastering jobs, but the music's excellent.

I think this is a case of where the sum is greater than the whole. I had some of the individual cds but sold them to make weigh for this Mosaic. You get the book, plus I kept the liner notes so what's not to like?

...so what's not to like?

In my case, the sound. Sorry to spoil the fun, but to my ears it sounds LOUD and compressed.
