  1. Booker Little

    I think the son Chuck met passed away a few years ago. The relationship to Malcolm is fascinating. I know someone who might have more info. I will check in and report back.
  2. Amazon - on demand CDRs

    Amazon used to say when a CD was an on-demand printing. It was hard to find on the page, but now I don't see it anymore. Can anyone find an example of where it says it? Did they decide not to mention it anymore? I was looking at Jack Wilson's Something Personal. In contrast, Deep Discount shows it clearly. Example: Got a Good Thing Goin (Manufactured on Demand)
  3. Duke Pearson - when did he leave Blue Note?

    Yes. I am talking about sessions that were released. Instead of having Frank or Duke as sole producers, they are given joint credit. Never noticed that before. Thinking of Home does not know which to credit. Another thing I noticed: Duke produced his first big band record, 12/15/67. Alfred retired in July/August 1967. I assume he was the only producer up until then, unless someone has a counterexample. So that first big band record may be the first session Duke ever produced, unless someone has a counterexample. I am wondering where info about producer credit is actually stored. The session logs? I am working on a website that will house all my ongoing research on Duke. One section will give a chronological listing of all sessions he produced. Hopefully, we will eventuelly establish which was first and last. 12/15/67 is one of the first. The 1975 Turrentine compilation may be one of the last, but he did not produce the original sessions. The 1974 Moceir Santos is one of the last he produced. Bertrand.

    Interesting new find: several Hutcherson sessions and one Lee Morgan list Wolff and Pearson as co-producers.

    There is a stash at the Library of Congress.
  6. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    Someone could put them out as a 'true' bootleg.

    My blog piece:
  8. Why are there still missing tracks? Was Sony not able to get the rights to the 6 tracks that were on the original Capitol LP? I thought these were going to come out one set at a time, so I bought Machine Gun, set 1, when it came out. I guess they changed their mind...

    What else would be on that album, other than the three tracks? Is there really enough for an album? I played portions of a 1970 interview with Duke, a track from the Newport Jazztet date, and a rejected track from Solid which popped up on YouTube.

    I will explain about the blurb at the concert.
  11. Lee Morgan Film

    Billy Preston was the 5th Beatle. Or 6th, if you also count George Martin. And of course, there was Stu Sutcliffe.
  12. David Murray

    This Saturday in Baltimore, caught David with special guests Archie Shepp, Grachan Moncur III and Dave Burrell. They were in town for the Paris/Algiers conference at Johns Hopkins. I was in the front row.
