    Nice compilation. I own all five volumes of Jazz et Cinema released as the serie Jazz in Paris. Lovely views of Paris in the age of the recordings, mainly the 50's and the early 60's.

    Is it arrogant to say that I knew you were a fan of this record? :D

    Though I have another edition, the Blakey section sounds fantastic. This should be superb, too.

    I never understood why Gitanes Productions altered the superb original artwork. Those are not bad photographied, but on the whole they make the CDs look and feel cheap.

    Well, jazz fans may hate the Gitanes’artwork, however casual (and wider) listeners may prefer it.

    As far as I'm concerned Mobley can do nothing wrong. Highly recommended! :)

    This album works in so many ways. It really does work as a Billie Holiday tribute album, and this from a guy who really doesn't get excited about tribute albums. And it really is a fine contemporary jazz album. And it sounds so beautiful on a great system. . . .

    You're welcome. Again, if you have the chance to get the Mosaic for a reasonable price, grab it, you won't regret it - unless you already have most of the stuff, of course :)

    I almost pulled the trigger on the Mosaic but chose to go for the individual albums. I also have Motor City Scene (United Artists), so I guess the Mosaic would be redundant.
