First Edition, Serial Number 996/1000

Purchased new in 2002 as the limited edition was selling out.

Unopened CDs.

Best offer.

---

The six Blue Note dates collected on our new Mosaic set are in a class by themselves; they are pure hard bop in the selection and treatment of the material and in instrumentation with Stanley Turrentine sharing the front line with a trumpet player or trombonist equal to him in talent. We're delighted to offer these excellent but overlooked hard bop sessions.

The collection includes:
Comin' Your Way from 1961 with Stanley's brother Tommy on trumpet and the tight, seasoned unit of Horace Parlan, George Tucker and Al Harewood. Given a selection number and listed in catalogs, it was not released at the time.
Jubilee Shout from 1962 with Tommy Turrentine, Sonny Clark, Kenny Burrell, Butch Warren and Al Harewood. The set introduces two previously unissued alternate takes.
A Chip Off The Old Block from 1963, a tribute to the Basie band with Blue Mitchell. Shirley Scott, Earl May and Al Harewood as well as two previously unissued performances.
In Memory Of from 1964 with Blue Mitchell, Curtis Fuller, Herbie Hancock, Bob Cranshaw, Candy Finch and, on several selections, Mickey Roker joining in on congas. On CD for the first time.
Mr. Natural from 1964 with an especially powerful group: Lee Morgan on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Bob Cranshaw, Elvin Jones on drums and Ray Barretto on congas. On CD for the first time.
Another Story from 1969 with Thad Jones on flugelhorn, Cedar Walton on piano, Buster Williams on bass and Mickey Roker on drums. On CD for the first time.

You hear the word "soulful" a lot when people talk about Stanley Turrentine, and what they really mean is the emotion he expressed through his confident control of every note. Turrentine often told the story of being drilled by his musician Dad. He would insist that the young Stanley stand in a corner and play one note endlessly. "Did you hear it?" his dad asked him when he was done. "Dad, I'm standing right here in the corner," the boy replied. Years later, he finally understood the lesson - that there are all kinds of sounds you can make depending on your attack, breath control, bending, and other manipulations.

At a time when musicians began pursuing an astonishing array of disciplines and personal quests, when many regarded "jazz" and "revolution" as interchangeable terms, Turrentine was at the forefront of a group of musicians who believed in melody and song; in extending and interpreting traditions, not in detonating them. While his style and ideas were contemporary, his big sound allied him more with some of the grand masters on the instrument.

This set is still available from Mosaic at $80.

That said, it's very much worth your time and money. But this is worth pointing out.

"best offer" means it's an auction, not a sale.

Just a "nit" I always love to pick.

Great set BTW.

Some people care about original vs re-releases.

BO means I will take whatever soneone considers reasonable. I have no idea what that us l, will sell for whatever that is above $20.

Sorry to intrude, but Mosaic never does re-releases.

Or do you want to say it's from the first batch the had printed/ordered/stored/shipped as opposed to the next couple of hundreds after it may have been on backorder? If so, where would you get that information form? I never saw any of that, never saw Mosaic say "we have the first thousand boxes here now" ... and I also never thought of considering later copies of the same box re-releases.

Yep, this is all very weird. As Kevin said it's a limited edition of 5000, not 1000, and it's not sold out. And Ubu is right, Mosaic doesn't do re-releases. I wonder what is being sold here.

When I bought this in 2002 it was a limited edition of 1000 and was in their "Last Chance" section. That's all I know about it.I guess they later decided to expand to 5000 and keep selling it, so I guess it is nothing special. Sorry for the confusion.

I bought mine in 2002, as well. Numbered 0980 of an edition limited to 5,000 albums.

Hm.

When I bought my copy from Mosaic, it came with no number listed. When I asked Mosaic, they said yeah, that sometimes happens, and they don't know which number I got. Sigh.

Mine is 2210/5000.

Can you scan the inside page of your booklet with the 996/1000 marking?
