For the first time anywhere, the Complete Commodore & Decca Eddie Condon & Bud Freeman Sessions. A substantial set - eight CDs containing 199 tracks in all. The set spans the years 1938, when Chicago-style jazz first took root in New York, through 1950.

These sessions were recorded in New York City at the Brunswick Studios on 1776 Broadway; the Decca Studios on 50 West 57th Street; Liederkranz Hall at 111 E. 58th Street; Reeves Sound Studios on 304 E. 44th Street; WOR Studios on 1440 Broadway; and at the World Broadcasting System, 711 5th Avenue.

It's the most extensive collection you will find showcasing this style, from two of its leading proponents -- music that became known as Nicksieland Jazz after Nick's Tavern in Greenwich Village, the popular haunt that was home to this music from the time these tracks were recorded.

In the interests of being as complete as humanly possible, Mosaics searched out every available LP and 78 from collector sources to augment what exists in the record label vaults, then painstakingly and lovingly transferred them using state-of-the-art 24-bit digital technology. We can confidently assure you, you've never heard them sound this good.
