  1. A new Bill Evans 5 CD box set - "Everybody Still Digs Bill Evans" - was recently announced. Release date is June 25. It looks like the first 4 CDs cover tracks from his entire career, while the 5th CD is a complete unreleased concert from 1975. I have already placed my pre-order via Amazon ($59 currently on Amazon). Below are more details from the announcement:: Craft Recordings celebrates the legacy of Bill Evans with the first-ever career-spanning collection spanning 1956-1980, "Everybody Still Digs Bill Evans." The 5-CD deluxe set spotlights the legendary jazz pianist's work as a leader and co-leader with over 60 choice cuts, including an entire, previously unreleased Bill Evans Trio live concert from 1975, also available as a stand-alone breakout titled “On A Friday Evening” in 2-LP, CD and digital formats. Also available across digital and streaming platforms, “Everybody Still Digs Bill Evans” includes newly remastered audio by GRAMMY®-winning engineer, Paul Blakemore. Both titles will be released on June 25th and are available for pre-order today. Bill Evans - Everybody Still Digs Bill Evans (5-CD Box Set) The first-ever career-spanning collection of music from pioneering jazz pianist Bill Evans. The five-disc deluxe edition features over 60 tracks that spotlight Evans' Riverside, Milestone, Fantasy, Verve, Warner Bros., and Elektra/Musiciancatalogs, plus a previously unreleased Bill Evans Trio live concert from 1975. The set comes housed in a superbly designed portfolio-style hard-cover 48-page book containing ephemera, photos, and extensive liner notes by GRAMMY®-winning writer Neil Tesser.
  2. I agree. I received this box a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love it. The music is great and the sound quality is fantastic. The only things I had from this box were copies of Una Mas and In 'N Out from the recent Blue Note 80 lp reissue series so most of this music was new to me. It has already become one of my favorite Mosaic box sets and one to which I will frequently return.
  3. Just saw this and just ordered. Thanks. This was an easy decision for me as I did not have any of this material in any other format. The only Joe Henderson I have is The Milestone Years CD box and a few of the recent Blue Note 80 or Blue Note Classic reissue lps so this will make a nice addition to my Joe Henderson collection.
  4. Thanks. PM replied to and pics of set sent via email. Set is on hold for Desert Vibe.
  5. Nice! I received an an email from Mosaic an hour ago informing me that my set has been forwarded to their warehouse (not shipped yet but hopefully soon).
  6. Record Store Day 2021

    No Sun Ra? I think every RSD has had at least one (and sometimes 2) Sun Ra records. I have all of them except for the Sun Ra Standards RSD release of a couple of years ago (RSD 2018, iirc). The Grateful Dead Olympia Theatre, Paris, is a great show and the vinyl would be enticing but I already have the Europe '72 Complete Recordings box set and I wonder how much of a sonic upgrade (if at all) the new vinyl release will be compared to the CD (which sounds excellent). The Roland Kirk is one I'll have to get.
  7. Price reduced to $155 (plus $10 media mail w/postal insurance). Payment by pay pal friends/family. Thelonious Monk: Complete Riverside Recordings (15 CD). 15 CDs in 4 fat jewel cases housed in a large 12x12 box with large booklet. All is in Mint, like new, condition (large 12 x 12 box, booklet, CDs, jewel cases). Thanks.
  8. Sinatra In Vegas With Sun Ra Discovery

    I can’t wait to hear the Sinatra and June Tyson duet of New York, New York, ha
  9. No worries....no offense taken. All the best.
  10. I checked discogs after seeing your post and did not see any sets for sale at 60 or 70 euros. There is a less expensive set listed for sale in Austria but that one lacks the box and book. And there is a set listed in France for around $125 USD but it is only a Very Good copy and, when shipping to the U.S. is included, I believe the price would be above my asking price. Median sales price on discogs is a useful starting point but one has to be careful in using it because it reflects past sales and not current value. It is more useful in pricing still in print items than for out of print sets, whose scarcity and price may swing a bit over a few months or year. For example, a hypothetical set that sold for $125 a year ago may now be scarcer and sell for much more. Just my thoughts. Thanks for letting me know about the concern regarding my price but, after looking at discogs and eBay today, I think my $160 price is a fair price for this 15 CD set that is in mint condition, out of print, and getting scarcer. But I will definitely monitor pricing trends on the secondary market and will be amenable to adjusting my price downward in the future if that is how the market is trending. I recently had sone interest for this set on an audiophile forum of which I am a member but nothing definite yet. Thanks again. I appreciate your feedback. though nothing definite yet)
  11. I researched prices on discogs, eBay, etc, when I first posted this for sale and the lowest price at that time was around $200. Where are you seeing it listed for 60 or 70 euros? Are you sure those listings are the same edition as this one? This is a copy of the nice, larger (12” x 12” box) original edition. I think there was a cheaper edition released a few years ago in a smaller no-frills package. That edition does sell for less but is not the same quality as this larger edition. Thanks.

  14. The problem is that buying Tone Poets at the Blue Note store when they have a 15% or 20% or 25% off sale is still more expensive (when shipping cost and tax are added) than buying from Amazon and some other places. I received a 10% discount code from Blue Note when I registered at their site a month or two ago and ended up not buying anything because a single Tone Poet lp would still have cost me $38 after the discount when shipping and tax were added in. I bought most of my Tone Poet lps from Amazon for $26 each (btw, Dusty Groove also has a lot of the more recent Tone Poet lps for $28 each. I bought 2 of my Tone Poets from them).
