Virtuoso At Work

Johnny Griffin was a tenor saxophone virtuoso. He possessed a magnificent, even tone throughout the range of the tenor saxophone and the ability to navigate the fastest tunes and the most sophisticated chord changes with seemingly effortless precision. Toss in his soulfulness and inventiveness and you have a recipe for genius.

This DVD features two 1971 French concerts with Griff's quartet (pianist Vince Benedetti, bassist Alby Cullaz and drummer Art Taylor) and guest artist Dizzy Gillespie on Hot House and A Night In Tunisia. The band is on fire through bebop classics from Dameron, Dizzy, Monk and Charlie Parker as well as four of Griff's best known originals including Soft And Furry and The JAMFs Are Coming. Art Taylor's unrelenting swing drives this band to incredible heights.

Running Low Sets



Jimmie Lunceford (7 CDs)

"While every Mosaic set I own is outstanding, Mosaic sometimes produces a set so superlative as to be an heirloom quality product. The Complete Jimmie Lunceford Decca Sessions is one of those sets." - Customer review

----------------------------------------------- <

Earl Hines (7 CDs)

“"There are very few long-playing sides which equal the first two in this set for spirit, drive, swing, bristling ensembles and infectious solos. At the time they were recorded, in 1939-40, Count Basie’s band was all the rage, but man for man, and arrangement for arrangement, the Hines band could battle it on its own terms and come away with colors flying.” - Stanley Dance

Rosemary Clooney (5 CDs)

“Rosemary was an unparalleled storyteller. Her precise intonation and spot-on sense of rhythm took full advantage of any song that gave her the leeway to swing the beat and pop the lyric.
