Nothing against owning music - I own plenty - but a question about listening to samples or buying without hearing. Where entire albums are available on the streaming services - as the Threadgills are - why not sample there before purchase?

As a principle I do not pay money for sampling albums. Streaming services are nothing but glorified sampling services to me. I know they are something else for others here, and for Millennials, well .. the less said the better. When I bought my €1100 Dali Ikon 5 MK2 speakers two years ago, the twenty-something idiot in the store would only let me listen to a streaming service he controlled through his fucking phone, because (his words) it would be too much trouble for him to hook up a CD player for me. Needless to say, I ended up buying the speakers someplace else.

In the end I ended up listening more closely to the Threadgill Mosaic over the last month as it is available on bittorrent, which to me is nothing more than a sampling service for music I am considering buying on disc. I do not equate (temporarily) having a FLAC or MP3 file on my harddrive with owning music, and neither with stealing for that matter.

Ah so you did listen to whole tracks and albums. That's what I was curious about.

Great set, I love Ella's young voice especially . Plenty of instrumentals though of those less inclined to vocals.

listened to Disc 5 of the Hines set last night. Very enjoyable and my spouse really liked it. Excellent sound for the era as well.

I ordered the Lester along with the Louis Armstrong (#257) and Gerry Mulligan LP set on the 4th of May as well.  I was charged several days later.  Right around that time it appears they ran out of Lester sets.  That's apparently due in June.  Hoping for something soon.

I love Mosaic Records, but their shipping and communication thereof is woefully inadequate for 2017.

I ordered the Hines as soon as it hit running low a couple of months ago.  Glad I did as the progression from in stock to running low to last chance to OOP seemed pretty quick.  I finally got to listen t it a couple of weeks ago and I was really very happy with what I heard.  Not what I expected and I mean that in a good way.  Very nice set and a very nice surprise for me.
