Just a note to get the discussion going on a forthcoming Mosaic set with all the Oscar Peterson Verve Trio's with Herb Ellis. Sceduled for later this year. Will post more details when they are mailed to me by MC.

Correction: It's 1951 to '53. All the sessions with Barney Kessel before Herb Ellis joined!

I wasn't that interested until your correction but now that actually sounds quite good, can't get enough of Barney.

Yes, with Kessel it could be interesting enough... don't have much of the trio with Ellis (or the later one with Thigpen) and don't feel like buying much more than I have... but with Kessel - any idea how big that set would be? The bigger, the less likely I'll buy, I guess.

It's the 51 - 53 sessions with Kessel (one with Ashby and one with Alvin Stoller on drums). Not too chilly for you I hope, Lon!

I was just anticipating an OP bashing as we've had before.

There's a lot of good music here.

I'd settle for a Penzance Select, or even a Mikado Single.

If they can make a Peterson Mosaic, why can't we at the very least get a Three Sounds Select or even a little itty bitty CD? :(

Because OP was a worldwide star for 50 years while the Three Sounds 'just' helped keep Blue Note afloat?

There are actually many Clef/Verve albums that haven't been on CD.

Unfortunately I think several albums will be incompletely represented on this Mosaic set, since many 12" albums drew their material from different sessions in the 1951-54 period, some with Kessel and some without.

Well, there's no Mosaic OP title, and I can see the appeal of having one. And this is a good choice of "theme" and the music that will be found on this set is bound to be quite nice. (What I know of the material is good!)

Why not just go to the Goodwill and pick up his entire catalog on LP like I did?

Good for you!

I don't think everyone wants his entire catalog and many of us don't do lps these days. :)

Hey, I'm not incredibly excited by this set, but I can see why Mosaic wants to do it and I think it will be as successful as their other Verve sets.

I was being halfway facetious. But considering how readily available Oscar is on both CD and LP - for low dough, to boot - I'm not sure how many people would get excited by a box set.

This set will include unissued tracks (unless masters have been lost) as well as singles tracks. Not everything on it can be collected even by picking up LPs.

What irks me is rather the incompletely reissued albums this will result in.

Mosaic's Scott Wenzel told me the box is expected to come out in August or September 2008.

Mosaic's upcoming releases - scroll down for the Peterson box:
"Coming up in the era he did, Oscar Peterson fell somewhere in between the swing players and the be-boppers, and the two strains wove together into something he never felt any reason to abandon. He and Ray Brown had developed an almost brotherly relationship thanks to the JATP tours they did together, and in Barney Kessel he found another player whose solos could wipe the floor, the walls, and the ceiling. With the JATP tours combined with these Clef and Mercury recordings the trio found the time and opportunity to hone their craft together and become a tight unit. Norman Granz’ vision of the “Songbook” album, was perfected by the trio and the series of “Oscar Peterson Meets…” have long been unavailable and are finally in one package.

The collection includes 127 tunes, including five alternate masters that have never appeared on any record, in any format. The earliest recording dates from November 25, 1951 and the last is from December 7, 1953. In the interest of being complete, we amassed a collection that exceeds even the one held in the Universal Music vaults; with some original masters missing entirely, we went to collectors for vintage 78s, second generation tapes, even rare LPs and EPs, performing sonic miracles when necessary to achieve a quality that meets our Mosaic standards."
