Well, I changed my mind and ordered the set today. Received a notice my order has been sent to the warehouse.  I checked and a couple of the individual CDs I have are CDRs so I can dispose of those now.

Good little writeup on the set in the latest Marc Myers blog.

As for the early 1980s - At least one NorthSea Festival had Hank listed as due to appear. I recall the adverts for it in the European jazz press (mentioned in small print). Never made it.

Courtesy of JazzWax, the poet Billy Collins wrote a poem on Hank Mobley:

Listening to Hank Mobley around 11 O’Clock
After a Long Fun Boozy Dinner, the Four of Us,
at Captain Pig’s, Our Favorite Restaurant in Town

I’m lying down now, solo on a couch,
imagining along with the music
that if I were, say, 15 or 16 tonight
and in possession of a fresh can
of pink or orange spray paint,
I would climb the 4th Street overpass 
and write in big letters
HANK MOBLEY SWINGS 
for all to see on their morning drive to work.

But having sailed some time ago
into the quiet cardigan harbor of my life 
out of earshot of the siren songs
that lure men onto reefs of foolishness
not to mention the bridges of bravado,
it’s enough to let the soap bubble
of that Hank Mobley thought drift
slowly across the living room and burst
with no warning, much to the amazement of the cat.

Just got shipping confirmation !

 

That second verse of the poem needs to be read with ‘pipe and slippers’ deployed. :D

Didn't/haven't ordered the Mosaic, but the 2012 Japanese CD of Third Stream (with the one 'new' bonus track on the new Mosaic), and The Flip Conn -- I just gave both of these a spin...  ...um, in solidarity?! :unsure:

^_^

Tom, it's "Third Season". It does have a previously unissued track (2012) but it is not the previously unissued track in the Mosaic. The new track is an alternate of "Me 'N' You".

Now that we know whose parcel arrived/didn't arrive, may we have reports on the sound and the booklet?

I've reported earlier on this forum. The sound I find excellent, it's great to have all these sessions in consistent transfers and mastering, both of which are very good. I confess I haven't yet read the booklet, I'm not into liner notes currently, but there are excellent photos, a number I've never seen before and don't believe have been released before.

Yes, I saw that, thanks, Lon. I was wondering if anyone else had any comments to make.

My set just arrived.  Spinning disc 1. Sound seems really excellent but I’ve not done any tedious AB comparisons. 
I’ve most of this scattered across RVG and McMaster CDs with their opposing methodology for ordering the material. It’s great to have it in consistent sound in a singular order .
