Whole batch of Mosaic Selects and Singles running low

1,084 posts in this topic

Everything I have ordered from Mosaic (including purchases in the last few months) has come via Canada Post and I have never paid Customs on a Mosaic order.

Ditto.

Edited to add- I have paid customs on Mosaics in the past, but not for 10 years, at least.

Ok, that's good to know. I'll give them a call today and see what they say.

I've never had customs charges on a Mosaic order either.

They changed something recently, my latest order was sent through something called Asendia, which if I remember correctly was handed off to Canada Post. There's also online tracking info.

Second time that my order is lost. They sent me a replacement received today - Tyner and Hill #16 selects.

Damn, wanted to use a gift card on my Mosaic order but didn't see where the hell I could have entered it ... send them a mail hoping they can still make use of it. Otherwise I'm kinda pissed ... they hand out gift cards but have no place where you can actually enter the number? I see on the card it says I have to order by phone or mail, but how inconvenient is that, I know NSA has my credit card anyway, but still, and doing international calls is still rather expensive in this country ... crap!

As usual, they're great ... and will be putting in my coupon code before charging my card :tup

Picked up the Tolliver Big Band Select, the Mulligan Select, and the Lloyd single.

I'm a huge Lloyd fan, so I'll know I'll enjoy that disc. The only material I already have is the earlier mono Gerry Mulligan Songbook release, so I have much to look forward to.

Was (and still am) on the fence about the Chu Berry and dropped it from my cart at the last instant.

Looks like the Gerry Mulligan Select is now on 'Last Chance'. I've ordered it and the McCoy from the 'Spanish Connection'.

The McCoy is mighty good!

I knew much of it beforehand and knew so much of the Mulligan (all but the Annie Ross and the unissued material) that I still haven't really explored that one ... but it is nice to have all those fifties Pacific sessions pulled together in one place.

I have all of it on vinyl and most on CD but it will be good to have the 'Cosmos' stuff on CD. Some great music on this Select.

The Mulligan is much more of an unknown entity to me.

The Mulligan is wonderful, through and through. One of my favorite Mosaic products.

Another vote for the Mulligan; I thoroughly enjoy it. Don't overlook the Cohn, Newman and Green if you like Basie-type small group swing. I wish I could love the Bechet more, but there are too many alternates for my tastes. And a big thumbs up for Art Blakey - Hard Bop; probably the best of the Jackie McLean sessions, with beautiful sound.

Hm, I think there's better Newman (the Swingville with Frank Foster is magnificient!) and Cohn. Nothing against the Select, it's nice and all, but as so many RCAs, it's a bit on the light side (or on the side of: producer calling a very strict regiment).

You're right, this Basie-like RCA material is a bit light/samey, even though the individual musicians may be excellent.

As far as Basie-like stuff goes, my vote is for the Quinichette albums (Prestige and ... uhm, Mighty Quinn ... Capitol or where was that one from?), they really are a nice bunch, all four of them!

Cohn has done some great things, of course, but I hear those RCAs on the good rather than very good (not to mention great) side.

And again, the Joe Newman with Frank Foster is magic! This one:

One of the best of the Singles IMO - and they did a very good job with the sound. Essential..

Is it my imagination or has the Bechet returned from the dead in 'Last Chance'?

Daggone it, I had no interest in Hard Bop before; now I'm wishing I included it with my last order.
