Black Saint/Soul Note Box Sets

952 posts in this topic

Have just moved this thread over from recommendations since we are dealing with box sets

CAM will be releasing (or may have already released) 4 box sets - Charlie Haden, Enrico Rava, Henry Threadgill and Enrico Pieranunzi

Looks like we will have a plethora of Threadgill/Air material (Black Saint & Mosaic sets) in the near future - looking forward to that

Regarding the recent BS/SN boxed sets, below is a reply I just received from CAM

Dear Stephen,

Concerning the Box Set collection, including albums by some of the artist who partecipated in the success of Soul Note & Black Saint (Charlie Haden, Enrico Rava, Henry Threadgill and Enrico Pieranunzi) ,will be in Exclusive Distribution of HARMONIA MUNDI IINTRANTIONAL.

Threadgill is cool! Will be looking for it!

The Haden is weird... mostly sideman or collectively led stuff, no? A bit of a hodge-podge!

I'm really surprised at this. I can understand record companies still pitching 'boutique' sets of Miles Davis, given his cache beyond jazz. But this music is insider stuff. It's available as CD and as download. Surely it would make sense to just get some good quality discographical information/notes together and have it available for download? I'd have thought all this fancy packaging was a thing of the pre-download age.

Good lord, even the reactionaries on the Gramophone hi-fi pages are backing away from their anti-download stance.

Maybe the idea is to stimulate demand by selling the box sets at budget prices? (The supposed reasoning being, sure, nobody's buying individual discs at $16.98 these days, but maybe you'll buy a 7-disc set for under $40, netting the label money they wouldn't have made otherwise.) One can only hope...

Jazzloft advertised these today in their regular email blast. The 7-disc sets are $60, the 6-disc ones are $55, and the 5-disc ones are $50. Not quite the deal I was hoping for, but still significantly cheaper than the typical BS/SN prices of at least $15 a disc.

On the Haden, I'd not put this up against the ECM Old and New Dreams, and I see that band as a more polite version of the Ornette Coleman quartet. The non-O&ND is Ok-ish.

On the Threadgill, I do like Air but don't know how much you need and find these a little undercharged, while the Nuff-Nuff group is OK and the other stuff I find dry.

The other sets I dunno. My 0.02 but much of the BS/SN material has gone cold on me after a period of eager accumulation. Not so great sonically unless they have gone in for remastering (um, and there's the usual Catch 22 right there...).

According to Jazzloft they are remastered. I sprung for the Threadgill as I have only one title of the 7.

The Threadgill stuff is more than fine, imo. And at < $9.00 per CD and remastered (hopefully well), it's a helluva deal. This and the upcoming Mosiac make it possible to, in two fell swoops, to learn and/or "catch up" with one of the major-yet-relatively-unheralded "jazz" figures of our time.

Of course, that's just my opinion, and if anybody disagrees, well then, go right on ahead, you have the right.

To be wrong. :g

The box sets have just gone up for sale on the Black Saint site (www.camoriginalsoundtracks.com/site/index.php?site=&path=home)

They are selling for 27.96 euros or 38.83US $'s (all sets the same price) - what a great deal!! (just over $5.50 for each Threadgill disc)

And they ship to the US, so at current exchange rates + ~$5 for shipping, that comes out to under $45 per set. Now that's more like it!

I just nabbed the Threadgill and Rava sets from the CAM jazz website for $84 US dollars shipped. A much better deal than the jazzloft. We'll see how the whole shipping thing from Italy works out.

They're pretty reliable -- I've ordered from them before, with no issues.

Have ordered three times from CAM Jazz over the past year - no shipping problems (to Australia) & well packaged

Actually, there were no shipping charges until recently

Thanks! Alan

I'll disagree with David on Etudes - it's a great set with Haden, Geri Allen and Paul Motian. There's a superb version of "Lonely Woman" on it.

I like Pieranunzi but don't know this era other than on the Haden. I've seen him live a couple of times and greatly enjoyed. Like the recent sets on Cam Jazz (esp Live in Japan) anyone know any of these?
