:tup  I just finished listening to this set. Very good (except for Disc 5, which can be safely skipped).

Hot Jazz On Blue Note (1996, CD) - Discogs

Oh, this box is so good. I only wish more of this material would be released.

It's all out there, but out of print now for the most part. It would be great if this were to be represented in the present excellent technology on cd. .. but it won't happen.

Is there  a better choice for a Sunday soundtrack than some Pres? Right now, I'm listening to disc two. Let me see how far I get.

The King Jazz Records Story - Jazz Messengers

Lots of Mezz Mezzrow and Sidney Bechet. And there are lots of spoken interludes by Mezzrow too. After all he was the cofounder.

After playing Benny Goodman 'The complete RCA Victor small group recordings' for the second time this week-end I'm baffeled that I didn't remember it better. The only track I don't like is 'Sweet Lorraine' beacause of the brushes as used by Dave Tough. My first tought was that the master was damaged.

Now playing 'Charlie Christian the genius of the electric guitar' Disc 1.

Did some comparisons between the two sets yesterday. The J.R.T. Davies remastering is so much better!

In between, some Satchmo:

I don't know. . . the JSP is really good but with some EQ experimentation the RCA sounds amazing to me.

It's been a long time since I broke this out. Listening at a public cafe is a weird but liberating post lockdown feeling. I got the digital version of this in the Itunes store for like $10 at the time.

Been spending some time with this set as well, part of the same purchase from Tommy’s Jazz. Lloyd is pleasantly engaging enough, with a strong Trane vibe at times, but it’s Bobo Stenson’s piano that’s really hooking me:

Been playing through this set this morning. Sound is okay, but one album has been de-noised a bit too much (needle drop?). The three alternates from "Ramblin' with Mose Allison" are missing. Fantasy should have done this themselves. The music is very nice.

The box is oop on the Fresh Sound website, but the German distributor still seems to have some copies.

There’s a new Mose box set on the way—can’t remember if it’s been discussed elsewhere on the board or not:

Mose Allison: Complete Atlantic and Elektra Recordings 1962-83

(Much better price via Popmarket, btw)

I had pre-ordered that through JPC - it was due out yesterday - but got an e-mail that it was oop or deleted! Now they offer the Japanese version at twice the charge. It is listed as out of stock at the Cherry Red website (which is the mother label of Strawberry).
