Starting the Ellington centennial boxset.

Music aside for the price they charge for that thing they could have done a better job with the cd cases and the way they go in the box :angry:

I bought a little 24-CD soft case to put the discs in...I agree, that box is a pain in the ass.

Albert Ayler Holy Ghost. I have just received this set and I am working my way through the whole collection. I have just listened to discs 1 and 2. Great stuff. :excited: The inserts are worth it as well.

Another fine Smithsonian Collection: Jazz Piano. 4cds with a lovely survey of styles and artists. Of course there are omissions but this is a yeoman's effort.

A fine soundtrack to while away what Henry James termed the the two most blessed words in the English language : summer afternoon.

Peace,

Jeff T aka Blue Trane

I love my Vandermark 5 Alchemia set - hours and hours of enjoyment. My favorite since the day it arrived.

Great box, though I sort of like the earlier "Star Dust" box better. Sure wish Bear Family would do one on the 1951-54 period!

I'm a little more than halfway through the L-O-V-E box & probably inclined to agree with you, although there's some great material here (disc 5 alone, with the Billy May & George Shearing sessions, is fantastic)--jtaylor, who posts here from time to time, was an assistant producer on this box, & I've lobbied him to do exactly what you suggested. I think he's all for it, and unless Will Friedwald's totally burned out on Cole, I'd wager they could sign him on for such a project. Hopefully Bear Family will go for it at some point.

And the discs aren't schmutzed up?

I love this set, too--AND the sound.
