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.

Oscar Peterson (7 CDs)

This Mosaic Records jazz collection is the first comprehensive study of Oscar Peterson's earliest trio jazz recordings, the setting for which he was best known, throughout his reign.

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

Joe Pass (5 CDs)

“Some of these quartets – particularly with gospel-charged pianist Les McCann-are as ingratiating and ear-friendly as any first-rate straight-ahead jazz you’re likely to hear.” - Jeff Simon, Buffalo News


Oliver Nelson (6 CDs)

“Oliver Nelson was perhaps the greatest jazz orchestrator and composer of the postwar era. This set which contains 15 albums and 100 tracks is a testament to Nelson’s frenetic activity and to the quality of his music” – Will Friedwald, The New York Sun


Duke Ellington (7 CDs)

"If you think you've heard this music before, you're wrong! The remastering is award-worthy! The sonic quality is far better than any other release of this essential muisc. Thanks, Mosaic, for your dedication to the restoration and release of musical masterpieces." - Customer Review
