Whole batch of Mosaic Selects and Singles running low

949 posts in this topic

Don't know if this was reported elsewhere, but it appears the Armstrong Live is now OOP.  22 sets left, if you count the back ordered Turrentine.

The Hank Mobley and Clifford Jordan sets joined the running low list.

These really are The Last Days if Hank's on the Endangered List.

I thought the same thing. That, or the license is *finally* running out!

Now or never for the Mobley. One of my favorite Mosaics.

These are  indeed the last days of Mosaic, at least as we currently know them.  The addition of Mobley and Jordan to the Last Chance process make 9 of their currently available 22 sets in the last chance phase.  That total of 22 sets of course includes the long back ordered Turrentine set - which really seems unlikely to reappear.

The Mobley set hitting the running low category seems as significant as the Parker, IMO.  It seemed for so long that the Mobley was going to go on forever.

Clifford Jordan is also significant in that I believe it was recently on back order and then re-printed.  Seems like they printed just enough to fulfill their back-orders plus a few more and that now they are running the set through a formal last chance process

I know there is a Teddy Wilson set yet to be released and perhaps a few more projects if a recent post in another thread is accurate.  Seems to me the new business model is to eliminate the huge back catalog along with its associated costs, do new releases in very limited quantities and very likely ship the music themselves, as opposed to utilizing an external shipping service.

Ditto what everyone else said. I think I have everything I "need" at this point.

The Slide Hampton single Drum suite is now last chance. When this one is gone Ruby Braff Hi Fi salute to Bunny is the last Single.

Hank Mobley and Charlie Parker are last chance. James P. Johnson is now running low.

Yeah, Bennedetti was essentially promised for perpetuity, so, if you're ever gonna get right with god, now's the time (pun only slightly intended), looks like the end is near, or even closer.

The expected delivery date of the Turrentine set has been moved again (to March).

As long as they do get another batch, that's alright with me - the later in the year, the more likely my budget will allow me to order one.

Looks like they found some Stan Getz Norgran LP sets.  It's back on Last Chance

Thanks Hans.  Although I haven't done an exhaustive comparison, it seems that the Mosaic has a bit more albums.

Don't forget that the Mosaic 4LP-set only has the tracks that were recorded within the 1953-1954 time frame, while the (OOP) Hip-O 3CD-set has all the tracks from 1952-1955.

And include one wrong track, which Mosaic corrected IIRC.

Thanks to you both.  I will probably opt for the Hip-O one, which I never purchased.

Yes, a live version instead of the original studio recording, if memory serves.

Whatever you choose, the music is great. Getz in his prime in my opinion.

Hip-0 offered an mp3 download for the erroneous track. Why not a corrected disc?

I guess too much hassle and unprofitable. I already had the right track on another CD.
