The same applies to the Morgan Shorter Vee Jay.

Luckily I have it from back in the day. But I'm not interested in parting with it. It's too good.

Don Pullen Select.  Just discovering those records, and really enjoying them.  I have the Black Saint/Soul Note box, need to revisit those again soon.

and I somehow didn't get the Grant Green/Sonny Clark box

But isn't all this on the BN released box? Or is there material on the Mosaic that is not on the BN box?

The two cd Blue Note set is included in the box set; the Mosaic also includes additional material.

Thanks. But wasn't it a 3 CD box? I have it but can't seem to find it right now.

The Mosaic was 4 discs, but would have fit on three.  That was my first-ever complaint about Mosaic apart from their LP-only issues in the early days.  You can get the entire Mosaic set contents except for 3 cuts by buying the 2CD Blue Note "Complete Quartets with Sonny Clark" set and the "Born to Be Blue" CD.  The three missing cuts are easy to cover, .  "Count Every Star" is on Ike Quebec's "Blue and Sentimental" album, and the latinish "Grenada" and "Hey There" are bonus cuts on Green's "The Latin Bit" CD.  And those two cuts are total musical outliers on the Mosaic set.   So you can save a good bit of $ and get the same music in what I consider a more pleasing form by skipping the Mosaic and buying the other three titles, but I do understand collecting :).  I know this info well because I went through the exercise of replacing my Green-Clark Mosaic when the 2CD Blue Note set came out in the late 90's.  That being said, the music on that Mosaic was a revelation when I bought it upon release in 1990.

I bought the Mosaic in '92 or so. I did compare the Blue Note set to the Mosaic and I've kept the Mosaic because I thought it sounded better. Took the 75th Anniversary releases from Japan on SHM-CD and the releases after that of this material to better the Mosaic sound for me.

That's exactly what I did but was unable to make comparisons with the Mosaic set (didn't have it) then upgraded to the Japanese SHM-CD's - all the titles from the Mosaic set have been SHM'd.

Still hunting the complete Woody Shaw Muse Sessions (at less than current ebay prices).

While my attention was concentrated elsewhere I missed the Braxton, Threadgill and Clifford Jordan boxes - all artists I have had professional relationships. When Mosaic was selling "partials" I asked Cuscuna for items from these sets. He responded "THOSE ARE THE TITLES YOU MISSED!" and told me notthing remained. This week I was able to purchase the Braxton here from a member.

One down, two to go.

Cuscuna was busting your chops, man. Your time for payback will come. I'd live in fear if I was him.

Nah. We've been friends since the late '60s.
