Mosaic sale: 15% off selected sets until July 31

69 posts in this topic

Ordered the Teagarden.

It's totally out of my element, but seemed like an interesting set and I could use a change of pace once in a while. Only 4 disks, so not that much of a committment, either.

The Teagarden is one of my favorites. I'd be surprised if you don't like it. . . fill us in.

I also picked in on this 15% off sale: the Teagarden and the Bix/Trumbauer/Teagarden (I have the complete Bix on the Sunbeam sets, but wanted to get the non-Bix sessions).

Sale prices are still in effect--at least for the moment--in case anyone's suffering from "nonbuyer's remorse" today. :rolleyes:

The Tal Farlow Set is on backorder at the moment, according to Scott yesterday.

"nonbuyers remorse" got the best of me! Teagarden ordered along with the soon to be gone Wilson. Argh...I thought I had kicked this habit.

Teagarden showed up today. Playing disk 1 now.

Definitely not my "usual".....but I like the change of pace.

I took advantage of the sale and ordered the Teagarden set. Admittedly I was a bit sceptical, but now, having listened to the first three discs so far, I have to say that this is a truly great set. This is first rate Dixieland Jazz. The band works as a unit in a way only working bands can achieve. Although there are - apart from Teagarden - no so called big names, it is a joy to listen to the nicely arranged ensembles as well as to the generally very good solos. Don Goldie, blessed with a beautiful tone and great technique, allows himself only a few moments of bad taste, but that does not affect the quality of the performances overall; Henry Cuesta plays competently and flawlessly; Don Ewell is superb as an accompanist as welll as in his solos; Stan Puls and Ronnie Greb / Barrett Deems provide effortless and swinging support (this is actually a swing rhythm section, not the heavy thumping two beat kind of rhythm one often hears with traditional bands); and Big T's playing (and occasional singing) is nothing short of sensational, one of the best trombone players ever. I am very happy with this set.

Crud. You guys keep talking about this Teagarden set, which I completely ignored during the sale, and now I've gone and listened to the clips, and NOW I wish I'd ordered this set while the sale was still going on!!! I HATE when I do that!!!!

Well, it's not going out of print soon (AFAIK), and being only a 4-disk set, it's not really that expensive as Mosaics go. So you can still get it for not that much more than the sale price.

Actually, my Turrentine set is on back-order until the end of August. I e-mail Mosaic to see if they could switch my order to the Teagarden set and credit my credit card. Will keep y'all posted.

It was no additional charge for shipping. i.e. the shipping charge for my original order was $12, and switching out the Turrentine for the Teagarden didn't result in a change in shipping charge since the change in value didn't drop the total below $150.

Free shipping would've been cool, though! :)
