Are there any box bargains currently available?

(the Miles stuff is missing - I think it was part of the 16 disc box, too?)

Was not part of the 16 disc box. There's a great separate 4CD set of the Miles stuff available.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that the US "Prestige Recordings" box had 13 CDs, with none of the Miles Quintet sides. I think there was a European 16-CD box that included the Miles Quintet tracks.

Thus, the entire 16-CD box is currently available as four boxes - Fearless Leader, Interplay, Side Steps, and Miles Davis - The Great Prestige Quintet.

I had this American 16CD box from 1991 and, as Felser said above, it did NOT have the Miles Davis recordings.:

Further proof that use of the 'Ignore' button does indeed waste bandwidth.

JETman corrected that post and several other misconceptions stated in this thread. Without any more attention-seeking posts, let's move on, K?

This is a great deal on the two 'Jazz on Film' box sets.

Highly recommend both of these wonderful sets.

Amazon Spain offers the reissue of Sony's Charlie Christian set for €14. If it's a straight reissue of the 2002 box (sans the box design), it's a very good deal. Other European Amazon dealers offer it for slightly more. It seems it won't be available in the UK till January, go figure.

Mingus Complete 1959 Columbia 3CD set on Amazon UK for 2 GBP (for now): http://www.amazon.co...TF8&me=&seller=

The info is a little contradictory but it's a pretty good punt if you ask me.

Link is (now) to Mingus Ah-Um, not the 3CD set. The latter is £24.95

Yep, some mighty fine stuff on it, even though it's a bit rambling all in all ... but then with Wardell, Dexter and Criss, who am I to mind that!

And the sound is great, considering the source material.
