    Although this is an excellent release in terms of sound quality, one does have to question the legitimacy of the claim that the stereo masters were chopped up to edit an audience into the mix. The ONLY stereo copy of an Ellington studio session!? There was also a mono release, so wouldn't they have chopped that mono sucker up too? More likely, the original tapes are gone...

      From Mosaic website:
      "When Duke Ellington set out to make a live album at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, he set his sights high, targeting new material that had been played by the band only infrequently in the months leading up to the concert. After the performance, Ellington and producer Irving Townsend decided to re-cut eight pieces under more ideal studio conditions and dub in applause to recreate the Newport event. The subsequent Newport 1958 album contained the eight studio tracks with doctored audience and only two real Newport performances ("Just Scratchin' The Surface" and "Prima Bara Dubla" with guest soloist Gerry Mulligan).
      A 2-CD Live At Newport 1958 of all the real Ellington performances from the festival only served to prove that the original assessment by Ellington to re-cut a lot of the material was correct. That reissue also sentenced the musically-superior studio material to obscurity. So for the Mosaic edition of Newport 1958, we have restored the masters of the studio material without the annoying dubbed-in audience, and added six more tracks from the concert, including a version "Feet Bone" which was not remade in the studio."
