Great in quality and incredible variety. This (along with vols 2 & 4) is probably one of the best compilation sets I own.

Purchased Dave Douglas' new (DOWNLOADABLE ONLY!) boxed set - Live at the Jazz Standard.. 12 sets, 6 nights...

Great stuff! I wish a hard copy was available!

I was seriously considering this till I saw it was MP3 only. For $70 I would expect lossless (FLAC) files.

John Coltrane: The Prestige Recordings.

Ditto. Lotsa gems in there!

No doubt.

Question: does anybody else with this box have a problem with the paper cover on the back, or bottom, of the box. Mine wasn't properly glued on and now comes off everytime I pick it up.

Miles Davis: The Complete In a Silent Way Sessions, nice to hear all this stuff in the order it was recorded.

It's kinda like one big long nice piece of music. :D:D:D

I know... they caught a lot of flack (no pun intended) for not doing that and not offering a hard copy... Overall I wouldn't recommend buying the set... just a couple of dates...

Some good stuff posted on this thread! Reminds me I really need to pick up the Mingus Atlantic and Holiday Verve sets.

Lately, I've been buried deep in my two all-time favorite box sets:

Classic Quartet: Complete Impulse! Studio Recordings - John Coltrane

Beauty Is A Rare Thing: The Complete Atlantic Recordings - Ornette Coleman

After reading through the Stan Getz post in "Recommendations", and seeing how many people listed this little gem; The Complete Roost Recordings

d475853ds18.jpg

I gave Discs 2 and 3 a spin last night. Getz and Raney were just amazing together.

I think if this was repackaged as a Mosaic Select: Stan Getz: The Complete Roost Recordings, people here would be raving about it alot more, I mean Malcolm Addey is involved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really wish I could find the The West Coast Sessions Box at a cheap price.

Not so much grooving as I am swinging. This stuff is hot! It would be hard not to have your spirits lifted listening to this.
