RCB,
Not even of the cover of the box. Yes, there is pictures of the albums, but too small to see and some of the art cover in many albums do not clearly exhibit album titles..

Fortunately, the music on my just arrived Kessel set (7 Classic Albums - Barney Kessel) matches the albums on the cover and as listed on the box.

However, the CD info that comes up is badly mismatched on some of the CDs. I will have to make manual corrections in the i-tunes.

The names of the albums should be on the front cover of the box. At least on Amazon you can clearly see all the pictures of the albums just as they appeared on the cover of the LP. It never bothered me that the linear notes or a fancy booklet was not included with a budget set. More importantly though; how do the recordings sound?

And my 12 Classic albums set by Horace Silver does not contain liner notes, not even the albums' names! Just track names on the cover of the box... No album names?!!

So the first part of my order came in, including the bargain box -- Complete Blue Note Collection: 1954-1957

One huge disappointment contained therein. The box neatly fits 8 complete Blakey recordings onto 4 discs. These include At the Cafe Bohemia vols 1 - 2 (I already had vol 1, expecting that to be my only duplication in the set), Night at Birdland vols 1 - 3, Orgy in Rhythm vols 1 - 2 and . . . .

. . . according to the box cover, starting with Horace Silver Trio

However, upon receiving the set and looking into it, while the box cover does picture the aforementioned Horace Silver Trio album, what is actually contained on the disc is Horace Silver & the Jazz Messengers. Don't get me wrong that's a fine disc and certainly a worthy inclusion in the set, but that is another that I already had, and I was looking forward to getting something different, especially the rarer Trio disc as was indicated.

I'm always a little leery of these bargain box sets. I expect little or nothing in the way of liner notes and am even willing to brook a slight drop in sound quality. However, A blatant misrepresentation of the actual contents, whether intentional or not, represents an unacceptable drop in product quality.

I have two more such sets yet to be delivered from the same order (Wynton Kelly and Barney Kessel sets). I hope they don't have such basic factual errors or misrepresentations.

Susan,

Thanks, it looks like I'll have to settle for the later recordings. I may take a closer look at some of the other Ellington sideman as well.

Best-

David,

I believe that the earlier Hodges set was issued only on vinyl.

David Mugmon says:
Sadly, I believe you are correct. I searched when I ordered the later set, to no avail. I'll keep my eye open. Is there a good place to go online for used out-of-print CDs?

Posted on Jan 24, 2016 12:15:07 PM PST
David,

I think you'll really enjoy the Hodges. Do you have earlier set, also on Mosaic, covering 1951-55? I think that's equally as good. I couldn't find it quickly on Amazon so it may be out of print.

1. I heard a selection from The Complete Verve Johnny Hodges Small Group Sessions 1956-61 on the local jazz station and placed an order.

2. I listened to a nice interview with Wally Schnalle and Hristo Vitchev this morning, so I ordered Idiot Fish. I haven't bought a fusion recording for a while. These guys sounded phenomenal.

I have also gone on a bit of an ordering binge.

I usually don't go for the bargain basement "XX albums collections" for three reasons:
1. No liner notes
2. To pack all those albums on as few CDs as possible,the discs don't line up with the albums.
(Exception--my collection of the 10 classic CDs from Donald Byrd perfectly fit two albums per CD for a nice 5 cd set).
3. I usually already have a few albums which reside in the bargain collection, and I don't like duplication.

However, I just found three very attractively priced sets by artists I like and only one of the 24 albums contained on them is in my current collection.

Wynton Kelly -- Nine Complete Albums: 1951-1961
Art Blakey -- Complete Blue Note Collection: 1954-1957
Barney Kessel -- 7 Classic Albums - Barney Kessel

Also ordered some serious hole fillers:
Kenny Drew -- Undercurrent
Bobby Hutcherson -- Stick-Up!
Kenny Burrell/Donald Byrd/et al -- All Day Long (I am a devoted fan of All Night Long)

Joe Henderson In Japan

Thank you, new unoriginal pseudonym, for your recommendation (couple of years ago!) of Joe Henderson's album Live in Japan. I am listening to it right now on Youtube and placed an order right away!

Matteson Phillips Tubajazz Consort Superhorns

This one appears to be available on CD, as is quite good.

If you're looking for tuba jazz albums, anything by this group is great. Also, check out Bob Stewart.

Watching/listening to 3 wonderful Youtubes suggested by stevign back in June 18, 2010. I was searching for Jazz tuba albums then. It took me like 5 years to check stevign's youtubes ?!!!

Yer welcome Ahmad. I listened to the entire recording on Spotify Web Player ( for free ) prior to purchasing it. Its the " type " of Jazz I particularly enjoy. Not only was the recording crisp and clear for being recorded as long ago as it was, but for the price, the amount of tunes on the CD made it even more appealing. Hope you N-Joy it 2.

Zolar, That's great news! I am still waiting for the shipment. hopefully it will arrive before Christmas. I got the idea of buying the album from a thread about organ jazz, I think.

Zolar Waka says:
Ahmad: Talk is Cheap is a freaking classic. Of all my albums, which is up to about 8000 now, Talk is Cheap is the one that I've listened to the most! First on cassette and vinyl, then on CD; I still have a vinyl copy. Next to "Double Fantasy" (which was my very first album; on cassette, stolen from my sister); Talk is Cheap is the first album I had copies on all 3 formats!

On order: Some King Curtis!

On that Sonny Clark set I referenced, Cool Struttin' is included in it. Prior to purchasing it myself I listened to most of the other recordings on Spotify Web Player. I think they have 5 of the 7 recordings.
After listening to them a time or two, I picked up the set. Early Blue Note recordings are some of my favorites and as I mentioned...the sound quality is superb. N-Joy that Cool Struttin' disc !!
