I’ve been listening to a lot of music in the last few weeks. I just got this Mosiac set last week, and I’m really enjoying it!
Classic 1936-1947 Count Basie & Lester Young Studio Sessions (#263), Mosaic Records Limited Edition Box Set: 5,000 copies – 8 CDs
“Here is the Basie band just a month after arriving in New York, and they are already bringing something radically new to the table: a flowing rhythm section and an emphasis on improvised solos, the likes of which had never been heard in New York before.” – Loren Schoenberg Session Notes for January 21, 1937
Sweet sounds from the early days of jazz (as opposed to Dixieland, Big Band or Swing) that’s well worth a listen! If you’re a jazz fan and like this kind of jazz, hurry, this set is almost sold out.
Do you listen to jazz? Have you been listening to music lately?
