  1. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Some do, most don't. The Verve ones tend not to but it's obvious that they are the Mosaics.
  2. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    The Cole is available. That was my first Qobuz purchase, after a board member steered me there. Have bought lots since.
  3. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Off the top of my head the Teagarden, Ellington, Kenton, Goodman, Herman and Four Freshmen are unavailable for download and streaming. Universal has made available other Mosaics from Blue Note and Verve, but there are many it hasn't. I'd like to see the Kid Ory set for example; I debated over that one when it was going oop then decided not to bite. The OP makes a good point -- why not just do it? Apathy or ignorance would be my guess.
  4. Remember those PD jazz boxes?

    Ha, should have specified recorded music, but now you mention it...
  5. Remember those PD jazz boxes?

    I don't think any music should be PD. Instead I would like a law whereby any copyright holder who is approached by a third party wishing to license otherwise unused music should be compelled to coooperate. That way instead of a flood of substandard issues of the same material we would be more likely to have professional masters from the original source material and appropriate fees paid. Until that happens I'll support Mosaic, Resonance, Ace, Real Gone etc and ignore the PD merchants. Unfortunately I also miss out on a lot of music.
  6. Raspberry PI 4 As An Audio Streamer

    I'll look into it, thanks
  7. Raspberry PI 4 As An Audio Streamer

    Thanks bresna, food for thought. I'd like to free my Macbook from my audio set-up and have thought about the Raspberry Pi but can't see that it would be compatible in an Apple set-up (it's apples and raspberries, I guess). FWIW my set-up is MyBook EHD > Macbook running JRiver > amp & speakers. I control it with JRemote on an iPad. (I too have 2 more MyBooks as back-up, silly not to.) Going by what has been posted above In wonder (if I could get it connected) if I could control it with JRiver on the Macbook, which would be great.
  8. Bertrand Tavernier (1941 - 2021)

    Tavernier's Round Midnight turned me into a jazz fan. Of course I had been exposed to lots of jazz -- as a child of the 1970s/1980s I would hear it often on even quite mainstream TV and radio shows -- but this film was the experience that made me go, "Ah!" I saw it at the Everyman cinema in Hampstead, north London and remember emerging afterwards, really high on what I had just seen and heard, and a middle-aged lady behind me saying: "Well that was one of the worst films I've ever seen."
  9. "New" Brubeck

    I remember a live box being mooted. Pity it never happened and I wonder if Mosaic would do it.
  10. I haven't even played my copy yet
  11. ABC shows

    DVD release just announced:
  12. ABC shows

    Tch, small print... One for the Brits on the forum I guess
  13. ABC shows

    Video, not radio, but couldn't find anywhere more suitable. Network DVD is making available for free streaming a different British ABC programme each day until Christmas. Today's is Duke Ellington at Coventry Cathedral in 1966. Available free for 24 hours (you have to register to play it). Find it here.
  14. Loudon Wainwright III - I'd Rather Lead a Band

    Thanks for the heads up. I very much like his contributions to Giordano's Boardwalk Empire albums.
