“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

Timeless Jazz Photographs
But Each One Available For A Limited Time
With Blue Note, Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff brought the world phenomenal jazz, thanks to their incredible ears. Fortunately, Wolff was blessed with an amazing eye as well.
From the company's inception, he never missed a recording session, and he always brought his Rolleiflex. Crouched behind mic stands, poised at the end of the piano bench, a fly on the wall while the playback rolled, he had exclusive photographic access to many of the most important moments in all of jazz history. They are great historic documents. And represent exceptional photographic talent.
Selected images became the album cover shots for Blue Note's brilliant designer Reid Miles, and are instantly recognized by millions. Now, museum-quality prints in limited editions can be owned forever... But only by a few handfuls of people.
Each image will be made available for one month only. At the end of that month, only the images ordered will be printed and that will be the end of the Limited Edition.
We will be selecting other iconic Francis Wolff images in the coming months.
Each fine art print will be 13" x 19" with an image size of 11"x11", printed using archival pigment inks on 100% acid-free rag paper. Like many photography galleries, we will ship the prints, ready for matting and framing, in a sturdy tube.
We are making these limited prints available for the low price of $250.00.
Please join us in celebrating the unique genius of Francis Wolff, and take advantage of this opportunity to own these very special portraits.
