Some previously unreleased Lennie Tristano *IS* in the works!! (Now, from StaMford)

Some years ago when Mosaic first farmed out their shipping, I got shipped the wrong item. Problem rectified, of course, but I had to e-mail Scott and go through some hassle. Not eager to be part of another shakedown cruise, so holding off for now. Another reason: I always use Paypal with Mosaic because I don't trust their security, which makes preorder less attractive because charge occurs immediately rather than upon shipping.

Good point. Nobody has to pre-order.

In fact, this is the very first Mosaic set I’ve ever preordered — because for years I normally would wait until something I wanted got on the “running low” list — at which point I would order every single thing they had that I wanted (then), in order to save a ton on shipping.

So I’d only order anything at all from Mosaic about once every 4 years or so, but they were pretty big orders ($400-$500, once even more than that even, iirc) — for which my “per item” shipping costs were about $1-$2 per item.

I just wanted to get in line quick as I could, because I’m pretty damn excited about this set — as much as any Mosaic ever, save for the Andrew Hill Blue Note Select (which is my all-time most anticipated Mosaic ever).

Just as excited (the announcement stunned me), but I'm patient. And I've acquired so darned many recordings since Covid hit (compensating for unavailability of other forms of entertainment :blink:) that there's plenty to listen to...

Hell, I almost wonder if this could ending up being THE(?) most historically significant Mosaic yet.

Hard to tell, not having heard it yet — but on paper, it does seem to have that potential. Maybe?  (Cart before horse? Check!)

There is only one international shipping rate now, at 25$, versus two previously. Does anyone know if it is with USPS or UPS? I used to favor the USPS slower option, more economical (rarely any taxes on arrival)

So did I. Except here in Europe it is already evening.

I got this notice in today's Mosaic Gazette email:

Thank You! We have had a very strong response for the preorder and we are on schedule to begin shipping next week. The warehouse is prepping but it will take at least a few days to ship all the orders.

You should have received an order confirmation which sometimes ends up in spam folder. In addition the order status may show on hold (credit card order) or processing (PayPal payment). All orders will show as processing when we charge your credit card.

Still don't have the confirmation email (yes, checked the spam folder), but at least the status nomenclature has been explained.

This is one I will wait on, not a critical buy for me.

I wonder what is Larry Kart's opinion about this set?  He's very knowledgeable about Tristano, and wrote the notes for Mosaic's Tristano-Konitz-Marsh box.

Haven't heard it yet. Have preordered it and am looking forward to it with much anticipation. Scott said that the wire recorder sound on the eariiest material isn't the greatest but later on the sound is fine.

Damn, I might have to buy my first Mosaic box.  Bastards!  

I generally don't like Mosaic's presentations, but in this case, they have no existing albums to destroy.

Weird but pleasant news. I was checking my order status on this set which had still said "processing," when I got a text from UPS that my Mosaic records box will be delivered tomorrow... Interesting. A nice little Christmas present for myself...
