Clifford Jordan, Charles Mingus, Eric Dolphy, Jaki Byard and Dannie Richmond at the Palozzo della Sport, Bolonga, Italy, April 24, 1965.

Scanned from booklet accompanying the Charles Mingus The Jazz Workshop Concerts 1964-1965 box set from Mosaic Records. Without exaggeration, this the most significant new release since Miles Davis’ Plugged Nickel recordings.

“The roots of modern jazz never sounded this great before – and this is the first time ever that all the early bop recordings by Savoy have been properly brought together in one place! Savoy was one of the most important labels to record the early bop pioneers – and had a dedication to the music that begin in 1945, and moved well into the 50s – as the label captured some of the brightest young stars who’d go onto shape a generation…” - Dusty Groove

Jazzheads have been sleeping on Chicago’s Bee Hive Records for years - decades really. A strictly Hard Bop label from the late 70s and early 80s. With this new Mosaic box set - likely the secret is out. The Complete Albums from Bee Hive ( I’ve been collecting ‘em on wax for years) is now available in a 12 CD set from the Mosaic Group. Limited to 5,000 numbered copies. Sure to move quick and go for high dollar prices on ebay afterward. Go get it! Featuring work by: Clifford Jordan, Curtis Fuller, Roland Hanna, Dizzy Reece, Frank Foster, Ronnie Mathews, Arnett Cobb and more. Mosaic does it again.
