Ltd. Edition 3 CD Sets
“While Mosaic never does wrong, this set is absolutely perfect. Three CDs of Andrew Hill, almost all of it previously unheard by the public. While these sessions probably sat in the vaults to lack of commercial viability at the time, they are every bit as good as Hill's contemporary Blue Note releases that have been released. Some of the lineups are chock full of heavy hitter sidemen- Sam Rivers, Lee Morgan, Woody Shaw, etc. Overall the set is a good indicator of the diversity of Hill's compositonal ideas in the late 60s. He is heard in large group settings, trio settings, and most amazingly working with a string quartet. I find the string quartet sessions to be the most remarkable on the set.” - Customer Review
"A remarkable burst of creativity over a two week span. Of course the Chet Baker reunion is marvelous. The Vinnie Burke strings are a great complement to Mulligan. I have to admit I was a bit worried about it. To be honest, while I love Gerry, I really bought this set for the Annie Ross session. Just fantastic! Her version of "I Feel Pretty" was worth the price for me. Transcendent.” - Customer Review
“ I've been purchasing Mosaic sets since the 90s and this is among my top five. Tyner's vision comes into focus on these sessions--powerful piano, extended modal songs, Eastern influences, and beautiful melodies. Remastering is top-notch as are the sidemen throughout.” - Customer Review
“This is such a great session. It is still so surprising that this lineup of the Messengers is overlooked and underrated. This lineup deserves to be heralded as one of Blakey's best alongside the Golson/Morgan/Timmons/Merritt '58 and the Shorter/Hubbard/Fuller/Walton/Merritt or Workman '61-'64 lineups. And, of course, this set has all of Mosaic's usual exemplary production hallmarks.” - Customer Review
“ The mastering on this disc is fantastic. Excellent sonic clarity all around. That, combined with Lloyd's great sense of melody and forward-thinking songwriting make for a satifsying listening experience. Lloyd's cool and progressive style is a joy, and the interplay between all the band members is superb. Tony Williams was one of the funkiest jazz drummers around, too! Buy this and you will find yourself seeking out more Charles Lloyd. Not to be missed! ” - Customer Review
Last Chance on Limited Edtion SetsThe "Running Low" category represents our estimate that the sets will be sold out in the next one to four months. "Last Chance" reflects our best estimate that the set will be sold out anywhere from today to two months. Please understand these are merely our best estimates and that circumstances can sometimes change quickly.
Why Limited Editions?
We appreciate the trust that our customers place in us. With so many of our sets sold out, we thought we'd better explain why our editions are limited and spell out what that means.
As we've stated from the beginning, Mosaic box sets are limited to a specific number of copies. Rest assured, in no case do we ever manufacture more than the stated figure.
Mosaic does not own the Blue Note, Pacific Jazz, Atlantic, Columbia, RCA, or any other catalogue. With the exception of our Charlie Parker - Dean Benedetti set (which is not a limited edition), Mosaic leases all of it. These leases eventually expire. So, even if we haven't reached our stated goal, when the lease expires the set must be discontinued.
To prevent any disappointing surprises, we will continue to keep our customers informed about which sets are in danger of being discontinued or sold out. Signing up for our e-mail newsletters assures that you'll get the most up-to-date information.
We consider our customers a part of our family and our main imperative is that every Mosaic limited edition set be available to everyone who cares as these sets will pay dividends for a lifetime.
