I don't know how meaningful these numbers are in regards any poll or potential sales, but there are over 244,000 likes/subscribers to the Mingus FB page.

I think a Facebook like is equivalent to when you're like, 11 or twelve and you ask the cutest girl in class "I like you, do you like me?" and she says "of course I do" and then you follow her around all day and she says that to everybody because she wants to be liked by everybody, not because she like everybody.

And a subscribe is like when you're 15 and go to everybody else's party so that when you have one of your own, everybody else will come to it, even the ones who throw shitty parties.

Having said that, there's a lot of serious musicians (and other people) who do Facebook pretty hardcore. I thnk it's a mistake to think that Facebook Peoples won't be serious about this product just because they're Facebook Peoples.

I'm under no illusion that very many of those 240K FB "fans" will purchase any new Mingus product - hell, the votes are still in the double digits - but "liking" a page does mean that its content shows up in your newsfeed (unless you specifically block it - and why would someone block a page that they specifically requested to follow?). If nothing else, a lot more people are hearing about this on FB than they are from, say, here or any other jazz board.

last check showed the voting has evened out a bit, with the download and the six cd set getting about the same amount of votes.

Splendid ! This one has the potential to be an absolutely top-notch Mosaic.

I sent an email expressing my point of view to the contact email address on the mingusmingusmingus.com website:

jazzworkshop@mingusmingusmingus.com



Yep. If you are not on FB, this is what I would suggest in terms of sending feedback.

I had a chance to chat with Sue at the Mingus HS Competition. Lovely, gracious woman. I only wish she had made this offering public before meeting her. I would have lobbied hard for the 6 CD Mosaic treatment in person.

Hmmm...on the one hand, that's 102 people who prefer a CD set instead of a digital download. On the other hand, that's an 84-84 tie as to who is and isn't likely to buy a 6 CD set.

4 CD set with a download certificate of the other 2 CDs worth of material?

Hmmmmmmm....

Those DL certificates rarely work for me...

What I'd be most interested to know though: is "My Favorite Quintet", the LP itself, planned to be included?
Never, ever, saw that one around - it's one of the Mingus LPs I've never heard (I think the only official one besides the late Hampton date).

Great news that more Mingus will be released! :tup Voted for the physical product at the web site(no fbook for me either) and hoping for a Mosaic release. As I love vinyl the most, a release in that format would be great as well. :)

Best way to find that one is on the French 'America' label LP release - which is how I got my copy. An original on the Charles Mingus label though would be a pretty mythical beast, I suspect.

I've once spotted one in Paris (but it wasn't for sale) :D

Will have to look for this in case it really won't be included (which, with all due respect, would be a silly call in my opinion).

Or look for Prestige P-24092 - Portrait, a 2LP that also includes Town Hall Concert and has liner notes by Jaki Byard.

It was among the last of the Prestige 24000 series, the series of "two-fers" that set the standard format for reissues throughout the 1970s. It was soon to be replaced by the OJC line of LPs , which was a mixed blessing...

Sorry to ask again but where do you see the results? (It's probably right in front of me on the FB page but I'm not seeing it>)

Joe, on the FB Page, move your mouse to the right of each poll choice and you should see a pop up window with data. . .

The results there are different than are reported above.
