It was delivered today by amazon. A properly licensed reissue, mastered from master tapes in the Warner vaults, sounding good - better engineering than on the Prestige albums. The music is groovy, all sidemen are inspired. I'm glad I got me a copy.

A small cardboard box with six CDs in separate cardboard slipcases and a nice booklet, btw.

... and there are such priceless lyrics as "Your mind is on vacation, and your mouth is working overtime."

Looking forward to hearing that Mose set myself.  Right now, revisiting discs 9-10 of the Herbie Hancock Columbia box, which cover the 1976 Newport Jazz Festival appearance that featured VSOP (first incarnation of this group, I believe?), the Mwandishi Sextet, and the Headhunters... quite the Herbie fest!

I like the line before that even better:  "If silence was golden, you wouldn't be worth a dime.".   And of course the punchline to "Parchman Farm" is priceless.

La Notte is a perennial favorite of mine. With Jeanne Moreau, Mastroiani and Monica Vitti. I hadn't ever stopped to consider its music, though. And I will now.

Georgie Fame is a favorite of mine, and I am slowly working my way through that box.  Love it!

I learned recently that Mitch Mitchell was Fame's drummer for the Sweet Things album.  He is listed as John Mitchell.

Monk Riverside.

I was going to do the same but have ended with the Complete Prestige set, which I like perhaps even some more. All his classics are there and in their original incarnation, which for me is very important. Plus, last not least, it's a K2.

I browsed IMDB the other day to learn about the music. And I found out Umberto Eco also appears in the movie as a guest at the party. He must have been young then. I read one of his books in university, The Definition of Art. He only got into writing novels later. At the beginning he was a non fiction writer.

I have just replayed the 1960s Monk piano solos. Does a 2 CD set count as a "box"? The set is called "Monk Alone" and is a delight to hear. Plenty of stride, and plenty of originals.

Track 3 on CD 2 is erroneously titled. Its name is "Blessed Assurance".
