Sony also controls the Victor masters and that would bump it to 8 CDs excluding the Universal stuff.

 

Count me in for that!

I wonder how Mosaic could possibly get that on 8 Cd's. The Sony material would need 4 Cd's. Duke's first stint with Victor 1927-1934 takes up 7 CD's in the Big RCA box. Only with a 1931 cut off date it would be just possible. The are 6 12" recordings in this period. This would also orphan the 2 Cd's worth 1932-1934 recordings. I have no idea in what sort of box these would fit. Stylisticly it would be strange to add these to a 1940-1942 Victor (6 Cd's worth) set though that would make it a 8 CD set. Assuming Mosaic would contemplate such a set. The 1940-1942 Victor recordings are not rare. And such a Mosaic set would only make sense if it would be followed by a 1944-1946/1952 Victor set (4 Cd's) and a 1947-1952 Columbia set (I asume 11 Cd's if all unissued recordings and unlicensed issues are included).

That would mean lot of overlap/doubling for those that have the big RCA box

Yes, there would be quite a bit of overlap, but the Mosaic would probably have better sound - the big RCA sounded overprocessed to me. It's been a few years since Scott said it still was on their radar, and I hope it still is and will actually be released in the near future.

Regardless of sound, my opinion is that too much overlap with the Centennial RCA box should be avoided.
