Mosaic Records History & Legacy
Mosaic Records, launched in 1983 by producer/journalist Michael Cuscuna and musician/record executive Charles Lourie, was created to release boxed sets of major jazz artists in a definitive way. The sets come with complete recordings, newly transferred and in chronological order, and a booklet that contained rare photos with thoroughly researched discographies and authoritative essays. In 1992, they expanded their purview by acquiring the Francis Wolff archives which contained thousands of photographs from historic Blue Note recording sessions. Since then, six books have been published and Mosaic Images has participated in dozens of exhibitions throughout the world.
