SEALED limited numbered edition 8 CD box set. Brand new, unopened Mosaic limited edition numbered box set # 1787 of 5000. Booklet & box are in excellent to near mint condition unless otherwise noted. Discs are in MINT still sealed condition.
For a complete study of the jazz musician, there is absolutely nothing in any record store that can compete with, or come close to, a Mosaic set. The Classic Columbia And Okeh Joe Venuti And Eddie Lang Sessions begins with their 1926 duet classics, Black And Blue Bottom and Stringing The Blues, and includes all of their delightful duo recordings. The set includes a vast collection of 194 tracks in various settings, featuring Venuti and Lang together and separately, with many rare recordings, six of which are previously unissued. In addition to the aforementioned duos and Langs dates with Bessie Smith and Lonnie Johnson, the set includes all of Langs solo performances; various big band dates under Langs and/or Venutis leadership; the Venuti Blue Four/Five/Six sessions; sidemen dates with small groups led by Louis Armstrong, Frank Trumbauer, Red Nichols and Tommy Dorsey; big band dates with Jack Pettis, Fred Rich and Paul Whiteman; and back-up sessions for popular singers like Red McKenzie, Cliff Edwards, Annette Hanshaw, Ruth Etting.A remarkable listening experience, this glorious eight-CD limited-edition set brings together virtually all of the jazz-oriented recordings made by violinist Joe Venuti and guitarist Eddie Lang for the Okeh and Columbia labels from 1926 through 1934. The non-jazz tracks are not included, and several alternate takes were not discovered in time to include in the set. The sound quality is astonishingly clear thanks to modern engineering techniques and, as with all Mosaic releases, the oversized booklet contains great photos, detailed discographies, insightful background essays, and track-by-track analyses. As for the music: It should raise some eyebrows. Both Venuti and Lang were innovators and, just as importantly, major soloists who consistently created new and exciting ways of communicating.
Whether playing alone, in duo, or with big bands, these two underrated players produced a body of work that stands as a critical bastion of early modern jazz. Among those who participate are trumpeters Louis Armstrong and Red Nichols, trombonist Jack Teagarden, and vocalists Bing Crosby and Bessie Smith. The last disc contains some wonderful novelty arrangements in which Venuti's goofy side comes to the fore. Lovingly and meticulously produced, the release of this wondrous boxed set is an important event. Due to their historical significance and -- even more so -- their pure musicality, these seminal recordings belong in every jazz collection as a prime example of 1920s and'30s jazz at its finest.Black And Blue Bottom (A) 2:39 J.
