    Same here .... me not being a dedicated Brubeck follower, but the Piano Trio format (based on the forementioned circumstances) and this taking place in my home town would have been of interest .... btw I`m positive - if this derived from tapes owned by Austrian Radio (as it seems) - the complete concert was recorded ....

    The notes on the ORF site says only one concert was recorded. Did you notice Sam Woodyard's bass drum behind Eugene Wright? Perhaps they were sharing the bill with the Duke, and that's all there is.

    Those solo piano pieces first appeared in the Charles Mingus Complete Debut Recordings box set, as well as I believe two alternates to the Trio session. I believe this was an unreleased incomplete LP session. 

    The Mingus Debut box omitted the solo tracks (as Mingus is not heard on them), had just the four trio tracks, but included two alternates and one previously unissued track plus an alternate. This and the Thad Jones session made the same day with the Dennis/Mingus/Roach trio seem to be the pianist's only recordings.

    In fact, I've come to the realization that I already have far too much music to truly appreciate all of it. I notice this especially when I am perusing my music library and see a title I really liked and then think that it's been years, sometimes even a decade, since I last played it. I literally have too much music.

    So true, and probably applies to many of us, myself included.

  4. " All in all, maybe Armstrong did “sell out”. But in doing so he secured his place in history. Roy Eldridge, “Hot Lips” Page, Henry “Red” Allen, Rex Stewart: the 20th century had plenty of trumpet gods, but they’re sadly forgotten to most. "

    Armstrong may be the best known jazz jusician ever, even in the remotest countryside, here in Germany, due to his "selling out". They don't know Ellington, or Miles, or you name who, but they know Satchmo.
