Since 1983, Mosaic Records has been at the forefront of the reissue market, dedicating themselves to definitive collections by both acknowledged jazz masters and neglected talents deserving of wider recognition. From the traditional sounds of Eddie Condon and George Lewis, to the hard bop of Lee Morgan and Hank Mobley, and even the blues of Amos Milburn and Otis Spann, Mosaic's limited edition sets have become favorites of collectors and aficionados around the world.
I love jazz because it's sophisticated, international, atmospheric yet free, cool and warm.
I was first exposed to jazz through the sultry voice and flawless swing of my mother.
I met Mark Murphy, David Linx, Kurt Elling, and Youn Sun Nah.
The best show I ever attended was Youn Sun Nah in Paris.
The first jazz record I bought was Native Dancer by Wayne Shorter and Milton Nascimento
My advice to new listeners: open your mind and your ears, forget about structure, feel the textures.
Go see live music and keep buying CDs!
