...and of course, when that US$300 hits your Canadian credit card, it'll be over C$400...

I know, I know, but I'm getting a nice income tax refund.  And I've already saved some towards it. Plus it may well be my last Mosaic order.  All the arguments I use on myself (and my wife, if needed!). :rolleyes:

Well, I think because most of those who will purchase the Benedetti set now, will do so as an impulse buy. The real Bird lovers have bought theirs a long time ago.

I have no idea how that explains: 

"Imho, the Benedetti is one set that'll be the easiest to find, if Mosaic shutters up."

 Find where? If Mosaic shuts down, that set goes with them unless they're able to sell the rights to another label. 

Oh, and I apologize on behalf of all the posers. Us fake Bird lovers stick together.

So by that logic, we should ignore the fact that I own every authorized/legitimate Charlie Parker recording made available, yet I am a fraud bc I waited until yesterday to acquire Benedetti?

Um. Ok.

I'm not ordinarily into "out" or avant garde things, but this drama did cause me to order the rapidly disappearing Threadgill Air set (shipped) and the Clifford Jordan set. Whether that one will ship or not, we'll just have to see. As another poster wrote, if I get it, great, if not....  But I'm an unqualified Mosaic fan. I *really* don't want to see the label go.

I think I mentioned in the earlier thread (now deleted) that Threadgill is a must-have for anyone who's even remotely interested in his work.

Indeed, a must have set. Amazing.

Not everyone gets a thrill out of listening to stand alone solos without the entire song. I finally ordered the Parker set today.

He asked an honest question. What is your answer? 

Bullshit, Scott. I didn't call anyone a fraud.

I don't know how many sets I have, but it's not 125.

Does anyone have every single set they've issued? I want to see the photos of your hoard.

Just ordered (from Jazzmessengers) the Eddie Condon box. Now I have them all.

I've known you were a troll for some time, but it's nice to see confirmation. 

Impulse buyers vs "real" Bird lovers. 

So, if they're not "real" they're...?

That is quite impressive, Fred! Some SERIOUS money sitting on those shelves. :)

Just heard from Scott Wenzel at Mosaic.  Apparently, the Savoy set will be reprinted later this month.  So if any of you are interested in this, you should put in an order with Mosaic rather than searching for it at other places.

That's actually good news. I wonder if the concerted effort over the last couple of days has thrown them a lifeline? 

*fingers crossed* 

I'd love to know what their sales numbers look like post-email/social media blitz.

Any indication of what else might be reprinted for one more (last?) go 'round?

I don't think you're alone. I also ordered the Clifford Jordan set. Still on the fence re:Threadgill. Have a couple of his Novus cds, might listen to them. It's been years.

Sorry to say you're right - these three are not listed at all any more ...

Very glad I got the Woody Shaw Muse set from Jazz Messengers as soon as the news broke. Excellent set, at least the first five discs. The penultimate session recorded by Rudy Van Gelder sounds especially thin. But the pre-Columbia albums are all great music. No complaints.

I have come to the conclusion that Ahmad Jamal is not my thing. And the Benedetti set, well, I don't think I listen to Bird often enough to justify spending €125 on it.

So is Jazz Messengers some kind of European middle man for Mosaic? 

Sorry for the "stupid American" question.

Yes, and they have free worldwide shipping.

Free worldwide shipping provided the order is over 60 euros, just to clarify.

Ok You guys have convinced me.  Just ordered it.   (The Threadgill, that is.  Elgin is referring to B. Frank's post but somehow when I hit quote it only brings up Elgin's reply.)
