Dumb question I asked about the Mosaic box, it's right there in your references!
Good job, very thorough. You got the Grand Award recordings, which were made at Fine Sound. The
Whiteman Orchestra reunion album is really neat. I can't understand why there was no interest in
reissuing it back when MCA was dipping into the Kapp, GA and Command catalogs occasionally, in the
early CD days. A reissue now would be a low-quality dub from an LP because the master tape likely
burned up on the Hollywood film lot a few years ago.
I like your introduction, too. Venuti is somewhat forgotten today, compared to Stephane Grappelli.
