In round numbers, how much Jimmy Rushing is on the Goodman/Young set?  Call me irresponsible, but for me, a little of him goes a long way (as if the words "little" and "Jimmy Rushing" can peacefully co-exist).  

Interesting. Rushing is one of my favorite singers. I've seldom heard one who could sing with such unparalleled joy! But, to each his own!

I never really felt the urge to get me a copy as I have all of it on single CD reissues, except for the Dicky Wells session and the newly found alternates. No this catches me at a very bad moment, financially. Looks like I have to pass. Maybe some good soul will make me a CDR with the few tracks I don't have ...

I can send you flacs if you give me a list of the tracks you need, but you'll have to burn the CDR yourself.

I just started revisiting the Lester Young 1936-47 set a few days ago.  One of my favorites, and staggering in how much it gathers of Lester in his prime.  Loren Schoenberg's notes are, as always, compelling and in-depth.  Fence-sitters, make that jump!  (If you're able)

Not to be disrespectful...I know how valuable Rushing was to Basie and you can't argue with the enthusiasm he brought tp the table...but I've always thought he was set on the 12-bar blues rinse / repeat cycle.

Boy, do I have the Jimmy Russian album for you!

these videos are from the same album but show the wrong cover:

If your response is along the lines of "well, yeah, but it still SOUNDS like everything is a blues", then my response will be along the lies of HELL YEAH, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!! :g

That "Russian Lullaby" swings so much! Also, this is very much in the southwest blues mode -- so linear. Wide open spaces.

The Rushing Lullabies CD comes with this LP attached as well, a worthy addition, even if my preference would have been to have it second instead of first. Still, killer.

If by :southwest blues" you mean an overall all-encompassing regional behavioral dialect for negotiating the rhythms of life, then yes, that it is!

Yes, that's what I mean. Singing (as with Rushing) and playing (as with Buddy Tate) into the next bar and beyond might be another way to put it.

 "The Jazz Odyssey of James Rushing Esquire" (Columbia) is another good one. Wonder  who was the "rabbi" behind those several Rushing Columbia LPs. John Hammond? Irving Townsend? Don't think they could have been big sellers.

I like all those Columbia records. I'd put my money on Hammond.

Just to clarify, I was talking about Rushing's vocal work with Basie.  I'm not familiar with these other recordings. although at first blush, it appears that there may be more to him than meets the eye.....and when you're talking about Mr. 5x5, that's saying something.

Yeah, I went of a "deep" Rushing kick a while back and was more than amply rewarded. There's catalog to be had, and it's all of a piece, a piece of essential substanciality!.

The Basie/ Young box looks great. I have been restraining from online orders lately though so that postal services can concentrate on the essential deliveries (pharmaceutical products, food, etc.) and work in acceptable conditions. If I buy the set, I might ask Mosaic to put it aside for me.

As you are living in France, ordering from JazzMessengers might be the better option:

Well done, I did the same for my discogs items.

The Savoy be bop sessions made a return to last chance. So if you missed out here’s chance. Probably not many copies.

The last Mosaic Single Ruby Braff  'Hi-Fi salute to Bunny' is now OOP. Just as with 'Selects (3 CD sets)' you can still click on 'Mosaic Singles' under Categories but you reach an empty page.

More sad about the Selects going away. It was a nice lower cost addition to the big boxes.

A shame the Selects turned out not to be economically viable. It was a great series.
