Bought this from a fellow board member and am enjoying it right now (again). I'm still not through this 16 CD box. Am at CDs 7-8 now, with a fantastic appearance at The Five Spot with Johnny Griffin, Ahmed Abdul-Malik and Roy Haynes.

I really like the Kenny Wheeler/John Taylor partnership.

The Monk Riverside set is great, and I'm happy with the sound.

For the "Monk's Music" and "Monk and Mulligan" sessions, they used several mono tracks where stereo versions exist, and there is at least one out-take that they omitted. Nothing serious here, but it was a bit careless.

The mono tapes of "Monk's Music" are superior to the stereo, especially if you like Wilbur Ware.

I'm also happy with it, though it's a bit old. Monk's Music I had already twice. Once as a OJC (I believe) plus a wonderful K2 from Japan.

The K2 is the mono master.

I considered this set a while ago, but now I think I'll stick with the Resonance, not least because I like early periods in artists.

It says "Complete", but omits the solo piano tracks, the one trio, and the quintet sides on which Shearing plays accordion while Marjorie Hyams takes a seat at the piano.

Well, from the title I wouldn't expect it to include the solo and trio sides. ;)

Depends on how you interpret the title: Complete Quintet Studio Sessions implies - at least to me - that everything recorded at the sessions should be included. Since it's only two or three solos and one trio, why not. And the missing accordion tracks technically are quintets. The eight tracks with vocalists, making it a sextet, are included. But they miss the one alternate of a Teddi King track Verve issued on some compilation. 

BTW - there is an unissued version of "The Christmas Song" that would be nice to hear. Mosaic should have done that. United Archives is not Mosaic .....

DKV & Joe McPhee the fire each time (Disc 1)

Great stuff. I’ve been through 4 of the 6 discs twice. The riffs & grooves are terrific. I prefer KV on baritone but he’s come a long way on his tenor. McPhee is a national treasure and he’s superb throughout. Only quibble is Kessler could be slightly higher in the mix.
