Monk/Coltrane, Jazz Piano Trios, Tolliver pages up

51 posts in this topic

In looking over the Mosaic webpages for these, I was a little disappointed to see several small errors -

Alberquerque Social Swim (Twardzik) - unless there's a good reason for this: the city is spelled Albuquerque

That session is listed as December 1954 but Dan Skea determined it was recorded on October 27, 1954 and it's even listed in the Lord CDROM 5.0 that way.

Crepescule With Nellie (Monk/Coltrane) - this is a long-standing error. The correct spelling of the word is Crepuscule!

Hoping that perhaps these won't be wrong in the actual issues.

Mike

I forwarded your post to Mosaic's Scott Wenzel. I hope they'll correct the errors before the set is released.

'Crepescule' originated on the Riverside 'Monk's Music' LP. The album was produced by Orin Keepnews who also wrote the liner notes without checking a dictionary. He did however note that the word meant 'Twilight'.

French fans of Monk had fun with that word when the album was released!

Apparently, they're out now. Felser got a Tolliver set yesterday.

They've updated the website, too. The only thing now listed in "Upcoming releases" is the Trane/Monk LP.

The last I'd heard (Thursday) when I ordered the Tolliver was that it was going to be in on Friday but that the Jazz Piano wouldn't be until next week. Perhaps that's changed. Hope so.

I received the Tolliver from Mosaic on Friday.

I have RUSS FREEMAN TRIO, THE LAST SET, TRIO: RUSS FREEMAN/RICHARD TWARDZIK, FIRST TIME OUT and SURGING AHEAD on LP.

Is the rest of the material (sessions D, F, G, H) worth the money? :huh:

Well, in my opinion the Twardzik material is the real gem of this collection, but the Rowles material is excellent as well. The Fisher is good. . . you may have that (?). . . .

It's really hard to say what someone else would feel is "worth the money." If you're a big Rowles fan I'd say it may well be.

Yes. The piano trios is what's holding things up. It wasn't in until yesterday and should be shipping today. I received my "shipping within 24 hours" email notice yesterday (monday 11/24).

I got both yesterday and have listened to the first disc of Jazz Piano. Really fine. Sounds good to me but for those who are finicky it is mastered by McMaster. Haven't listened to the Tolliver yet.

Also, check the numbers on the side of the boxes.

Mine has a 5-digit "B2" number on the #19

and the #20 just has MS-020. The 19 has a barcode with numbers

and the #20 has no barcode anywhere :wacko: ...so, I totally don't get it!

:blink:

I'll bite: what's so finicky about not liking McMaster's masterings??

I knew McMaster mastered this set and I generally don't like his mastering jobs (to put it mildly), yet I ordered it, that's how much I love the music.

Some possible bad news about the Tolliver. Mine wouldn't play

on my Bose player. Mosaic sent me a second copy and that wouldn't play

either.

on my Bose player ... perhaps due to its being copy protected?

Are you sure it's copy-protected? Does it say so in the booklet, on the CD or the inserts?

Did you try another CD player?
