1861 in an edition limited to 7,500 albums. A collection of mostly formerly rare sessions made for Capitol during its first 11 years, this limited-edition box set is utterly astonishing, even for the Mosaic label. Unlike most of their other efforts, this is not a'complete' set, although each of the 65 sessions covered is complete, and the quantity and high quality are both superb. Included are thrilling sessions by Paul Whiteman , Nappy Lamare , Eddie Miller , Marvin Ash , Ray Baudac , Wingy Manone , Johnny Mercer , Scatman Crothers , Jack Teagarden , Kay Starr , Red Norvo and many, many more.

Osaic here brings to light 65 sessions recorded for Capitol by various groups of jazzmen between 1942 and 1953, their major connecting factor being that, for the most part, they have not been available since their initial appearance on 78s, EPs, and 10-inch LPs. Additionally, among the 254 tracks included, there are 46 that have never been issued in any form, some being alternate takes and others being wholly new performances. Mosaic has already issued complete sets of Capitol recordings by The Gerry Mulligan Quartet , The Nat King Cole Trio , Duke Ellington , Stan Kenton , Jack Teagarden , The Benny Goodman Small Groups and The George Shearing Sextet , so selections from these are not duplicated here. Also omitted for reasons of space are the many sessions by Red Nichols , Billy Butterfield , Woody Herman , Charlie Barnet , Art Tatum , Julia Lee , Peggy Lee and Pete Dailey , as well as others of smaller output, such as those by Coleman Hawkins , L ennie Tristano , and Miles Davis.There is an LP-sized fully-illustrated informative 36-page booklet included, with a fully-detailed tracklist at the rear. The fantastic rarities on this collection are well worth seeking out, and this now discontinued set, a particularly hard to find gem, is a truly superlative offering and would make a stunning addition to any collection.
