The Complete Louis Armstrong
Decca Sessions 1935-46

The Columbia and OKeh Benny Goodman
Orchestra Sessions

“His quicksilver tone, his insistent drive to swing the music, his ability to execute cleanly the most dramatic filigrees of passages – all these qualities made him one of the most imitated instrumentalists in the world.” – Robert J. O’Meally, Dir. of Jazz Studies, Columbia Univ.

The Bing Crosby CBS Radio Recordings (1954-56)
The 160 songs in this Mosaic collection were recorded with the Buddy Cole Quartet between 1954 and 1956 for Bing’s CBS show are absolutely revelatory. Crosby’s early jazz roots informed his influential career as a pop singer. To our knowledge, these are the only recorded performances of Crosby singing the Great American Songbook in an informal atmosphere with a consummate small jazz ensemble.

Complete Atlantic Studio
Modern Jazz Quartet 1956-64

“Well, the big winner in this set is John Lewis whose piano is now crisp, bright and the interaction between Lewis and Milt is even more of a wonder…This is one of the most impressive remastering jobs of any jazz recording I’ve ever heard.” – Customer Review

Blue Note Stanley Turrentine
Quintet & Sextet Sessions
“Stanley Turrentine had a sound. Until his death in 2000, he was the master of a tenor saxophone tone that demanded attention from the first note. A throwback to the brawny tenor stylists of the swing era – Ben Webster, Illinois Jacquet, Don Byas – as well as the funky R & B players of the late ’40s and ’50s. Turrentine took no prisoners, no matter the tempo.” – Steve Futterman, Washington Post

Charles Mingus:The Jazz Workshop Concerts 1964-65
This set chronicles the essential live performances of this genius of modern music as his compositions achieved a depth and complexity we would come to know as Mingus’s most signature work. It includes the brilliant Eric Dolphy, along with Jaki Byard, Dannie Richmond, Johnny Coles, and Clifford Jordan — certainly one of the best assemblages of musicians ever.

The Complete Ahmad Jamal Trio Argo Sessions
As a musician myself, I believe this set to be an important piece of Jazz history. Not only because of Ahmad’s beautiful approach to the music but, the wonderful support form his sidemen. – Customer Review
