I'm crazy. I bid on the Jones/Lewis and won ..... at least I can rest assured I will get a first class copy from a reliable seller, and one of the sets I always regretted that I had to pass while they were around. I'm crazy. Bread and water for the next month. At least after the bottle of wine I am enjoying at the moment is empty.

Congratulations! I bought the Cecil Taylor last year (mint, #0039) and I couldn't be happier. It was shipped in one of the same boxes Mosaic uses for big sets.

That was a good price, actually. Just a few years ago it might have sold for twice as much.

Has anyone heard the Charles Tolliver Big Band Mosaic selects? I have a copy of Impact and the music is awesome but quality is awful.

Arrrgh! I knew the Woody Herman would move to Last Chance as soon as I bid on the Jones/Lewis set .... no more funds for this until next month.

I just ordered the Carter/Bradford Mosaic Select. I was told there are ten left.

I'm tempted, but I'm sure I would only listen to it once or twice. It should go to a more worthy household.

I snagged a Carter-Bradford Mosaic 2 weeks ago and am SURE GLAD I DID! Johnathan/Mosaic & Co. issued some crucial sounds in that set! These cats had a vocabulary going and were able to "get around" on their horns. As has been said elsewhere, the duo sessions ARE revealing!

Hadn't noticed yet, but the Ellington Small Group is now running low ... and so is the Quincy Jones. The former essential, the later almost, as well.

They also have some copies of some Mighty Quinn discs available in their last chance list ... those are some very nice reissues in my opinoin (but don't ask me any audiophile crap, I got them for the music that was not available elsewhere - Pepper Adams, Don Ellis, Paul Quinichette, Harold Land etc.).

I have all of those Mighty Quinn discs and they all sound mighty fine - looks like they were all discs Cuscuna couldn't reissue under the Blue Note heading.

Yes, a mighty fine run of "leftovers"!

I have all of them as well, I think ... and a few of their own productions on top of that.

The Lionel Hampton set is now on the out-of-print list.

So it was a wise decision to get the Hamp first and put the Herman further down the buying list.

He's got 12 different LP sets on Ebay now.

Unfortunately, he's upped his starting bid significantly from the last batches. I don't see all of these selling with those starting bids.

Seems like I will get my copy of the Woody Herman Columbia Box - took advantage of the reduced shipping rates and ordered, just received confirmation.
