Threadgill is a must-have, IMHO.

Third the Threadgill recommendation--I just ordered a copy of this set for the station's library.  Amazing that Mosaic was able to put out both this and the Braxton set.

The boogie woogie Select is now oop. Woody Herman is the last Select.

That boogie woogie Select is very good. Buy it up before it disappears.

Woody Shaw Muse

This news comes one month too soon for me. Shit. I was led to believe there was plenty of the Shaw set back in stock.

Oh well.  Ordered through Jazz Messengers just now.

They intend to close shop?

Or are the licenses from the Universal group not as long termed as they used to be?

Circumstances change and can change quickly, but there was an interview with Cuscuna recently which seemed to indicate that they planned to continue (was more positive than i'd imagined).

I think as they do small-ish print runs of say 500-1000 at a time (rather than printing the whole 7500 copies of a set all at once and storing them), i think depending on how the set has sold maybe sometimes they opt to let it go OOP voluntarily rather than printing another 500-1000 or whatever. So if it's been sitting on 'this item is backordered' status for a while, maybe they look at it and go, "guys, we ain't gonna sell another 1000 of these, rather than printing 1000 we've got a few returns lying around that we can tidy up and cobble together and put it on 'last chance', and then that's it".

Or maybe the licence runs out. I guess it's case by case.

This is pure speculation on my part.

Just ordered the Shaw and Condon.  Thanks for the heads up.

 

Hoping the Mingus set actually comes back into print.  Johnson too.

Hopefully they simply quickly sold a whole bunch of the Woody Shaw and it will be on Running Low for some time. (It came back in stock only in January.) I just could not take the chance of Jazz Messengers going out of stock and having to order from the USA and pay tens of euros extra on shipping and customs. The customs shakedown is especially galling, politicians and bureaucrats interfering with people's hobbies.

I'm pretty much all in on Mosaic sets at this point - having been a customer since the late 90's.  My personal buying pattern is to cherry pick sets that are currently in release but once they hit the running low category - I'll grab them.  Did the same with Clooney and Hines back in February and Hines is now on Last Chance.

Coltrane 'Sun Ship' on vinyl now seems to have come from nowhere and gone straight into 'Last Chance' :blink:

 More like 'Stamford Chainsaw Massacre'  !

Maybe the reason lots of these sets are running low is that Jazz Messengers et al have been doing some bulk purchases to re-stock?

Last I checked their range of stocked titles was modest. Who knows how many copies they have, though.

Could it be part of a sinister Trumpocalypse against degenerate art?

Jazz Messengers are showing the Jimmie Lunceford set as back in stock, this is now sold out on the Mosaic site. Final last chance for anyone interested, I took the plunge, it's a great set.

Oof but thanks for the heads up. I ordered Shaw, Condon/Freeman and Webb. Three big sets in one go (and I just spent a lot on an oop set from a certain bluenotesound) but I don't want to miss these. I'll cut back over summer (low electricity bills!)

I went for the Webb/Ella and the Earl Hines.  Still on the fence about the Hines, but didn't want to miss out should it turn out I love it.

Latest email from Mosaic says that the Brown/Roach 4LP set is now OOP as they don't plan on doing another repressing. That was a good set !

The Webb/Ella and Condon/Freeman are on my radar. The Woody Shaw Muse is a 'must have' IMO, for anyone interested in that material.

Expensive couple of months !

Ordered the Ella/Webb and Basie/Pres (via jazzmessengers) ... was unsure about the Ella/Webb all the time, as I think I have all the recordings - but I am a big fan of these Mosaics offering earlier jazz and I'm sure I'll love this one as well (and sound should be better than on the Chronos).

And hoping the James P. will indeed make return (if the Goodman doesn't so be it - that's the only other older one I have on my wishlist still ... also there are the Savoy and Bee Hive sets, not sure about the Bing Crosby).

This week I got a €80 rebate from my electricity/gas supplier for the last 12 months. ;)
