Chick Webb Mosaic Set announced

127 posts in this topic

I had a question about the number of instrumentals this box contains and I found the answer buried on Mosaic's website, so I'll quote it here in case anyone else was wondering.

"If our plan here had been to collect only the complete instrumental work of the Chick Webb Orchestra on Decca, it would have been a sweet but slim project indeed -- barely a single CD, in fact. Of the 129 surviving commercial sides and alternates he recorded between September 1934 and his death in June 1939, only 23 were instrumental. Never in jazz history did a major swing band ever come to be so dominated by a single singer."
