  1. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    very interesting. there are three guitar amps ready for the guitar workshop. but it's not the same venue as the GG b/w video (and two different amps)
  2. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    here's what i got from the ruby braff discography: newport all-stars: oct 24 1969 ronnie scotts oct 27 royal albert hall oct 29 basel (burrell is mentioned) nov 1 paris (ellington also played that night, could the guitar workshop really have played a 90 min set as well?) nov 2 copenhagen nov 3 or 4 (?) stockholm (burrell is mentioned) nov 5 rotterdam nov 8 berlin so grant possibly appeared with the "guitar workshop"? what was the format of newport in europe? apparently there was a festival in london (jazz expo). did the guitar workshop travel along to the other venues? there is no mention of grant in the braff book. edit: the nov 1 in paris must have been something else. wasn't mobley also there with byas and shepp?
  3. Wes Montgomery and Clark Terry

    joe louis has got additional "navy swings" sessions with wes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDXIOMK7tJU&list=PLINvK2ShyqTrS9H9E8mu6dfFxazra2rRA&index=8 there was even a tv broadcast with wes, terry and the pim jacobs quartet (including guitarist wim overgaauw trading fours with wes). sadly that tape is said to not have survived.
  4. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    the newport in europe dates can be found here: https://books.google.de/books?id=Xv4wRvu2qT0C&pg=PA238&lpg=PA238&dq=jazz+expo+london+1969&source=bl&ots=C_6YN_8YBq&sig=Fr76MwU7-gtLyCNzy64GLAkzC2U&hl=de&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwih392xkt7SAhXDvRQKHaLwB4wQ6AEINTAD#v=onepage&q=jazz%20expo%20london%201969&f=false i assume that the tv stations actually do own the copyrights. personally i don't think the paris session is good enough for official release. don lamond is a total mismatch. and i wish you love is a trainwreck, ruined by kessel and ridley up to the very last note where they leave grant hanging in mid air, until kessel finally finds the most inappropriate ending chord (A over grant's Eb), much to the dismay of grant.
  5. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    dunno, i don't have it. i contacted the trader a few years back and he was incredibly rude to say the least.
  6. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    yes, these recordings do exist.
  7. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    iit seems that the 1969 gigs were part of the "newport in europe" package. the newport all-stars played ronnie scott's on oct 24 1969 and paris nov 1st 1969. although there is no mention of grant or burrell, those dates seem likely. i wonder how grant ended up with that tour and what his status was. https://books.google.de/books?id=Xv4wRvu2qT0C&pg=PA238&lpg=PA238&dq=jazz+expo+london+1969&source=bl&ots=C_6YN_8YBq&sig=Fr76MwU7-gtLyCNzy64GLAkzC2U&hl=de&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwih392xkt7SAhXDvRQKHaLwB4wQ6AEINTAD#v=onepage&q=jazz%20expo%20london%201969&f=false the ronnie scotts video is mentioned here. the program aired dec. 26 1969: http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/bf9ee317058243769867e2417565d199 this is a preview for the 1970 "jazz scene" and a further search reveals this interesting item: Presenting each week some of the international jazz stars recorded at Europe's Number One Jazz Club. Tonight Ronnie Scott introduces: The Charlie Shavers Quartet The Grant Green Trio Champion Jack Dupree Buddy Rich and his Orchestra http://genome.ch.bbc.co.uk/search/0/20?adv=0&q=jazz+scene&media=all&yf=1923&yt=2009&mf=1&mt=12&tf=00%3A00&tt=00%3A00#search so maybe there is another 45 min set by grant?
  8. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    you can buy them
  9. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    thanks. i'll try and track it down.
  10. Unreleased Art Blakey BN session 8 March 1959

    interesting to re-read cuscuna's comments on this session. while the session surely has it's faults (blakey sounds cranky, mobley strung-out, merritt struggles a lot), it's not as bad as it's made out to be. especially since cuscuna had no problems releasing two sub-par GG sessions (standards, first session).
  11. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    i'd be surprised if the paris video sold more than a few hundred copies (probably less). a youtube channel with unreleased GG has been mentioned upstream. mindblowing stuff for GG fans, the average view count is well below one-hundred for the gooden's corner session reel tunes. so i don't think GG jr is robbing anyone. still an official release would be nice, especially since the part with burrell and kessel does still exist afaik. any idea how to get hold of the "lester leaps in" eastbound track?
  12. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    i don't think the movie will contain any new footage. it will probably be not more than a documentary about writing the book (which wasn't very good tbh). iirc GG jr had some sort of kickstarter campaign for the color funk video.
  13. Unissued/Unreleased Grant Green

    any news on the 1974 (?) GG colour vid that GG jr was planning to release after the paris video? also, has anyone ever attempted to create a list which unissued items from grant have actually surfaced over the years? has anyone here ever heard the charlie rouse or gene harris session?
  14. Bob Belden - RIP

    sad news. RIP.
  15. "Undecided" On Wes Montgomery: In the Beginning

    yes, that is really undecided. i'm very impressed with wes' playing on that recording. for me the highlights are caravan, all the things and after you've gone. the bright tempos and wes' nice bright pre-riverside sound (despite the mediocre sound quality) make this a very enjoyable record. four gets a very interesting bluesy treatment. we also get wes on four-string fender bass.
  16. new wes montgomery?

    yes it is! all the things is totally mind-blowing with the crowd going nuts. no wonder wes considered the 50s his best period.
  17. Stagg guitars

    i've seen an electric bass by stagg that wasn't very good. maybe worth the risk if you can get the guitar for less than 100$? did you have a chance to play it? maybe you can find a nice lefty squire or epiphone?
  18. new wes montgomery?

    thank you guys! so probably april for the resonance release. did anyone get the vinyls last year?
  19. Grant Green french TV '69, 43 min of grant

    a snippet from that video was first posted on youtube by an italian "collector" earlier this year. i unsucessfully tried to trade with the guy, who frankly acted like a huge jerk. i understand that GG Jr most likely got the video from that guy. i purchased it without any problems from the payloadz site. it's a good video, although a better drummer would have helped.
  20. in other news german jazzthing chose not to put a recent photo of sonny rollins on the cover for it's photo-homestory, but a 7-year old picture. while a recent photo would have been more "authentic", according to the editor, axel stinshof, in order to compete with other magazines on the newsstands one chose a more forceful looking image of rollins. http://www.jazzthing.de/heft/104/editorial-104/
  21. does anyone know where to find charts for the arrangements of the sam jones records down home, soul society and the chant i'd appreciate any hint. tia!
  22. from the (summer?) 1969 "great guitars" european tour.
  23. new grant green footage on youtube

    seems like the channel-owner has a full paris concert. for trade. i'll try and get hold of a copy. a full vid with grant green would be a dream come true.
  24. Great Solos In Blue Note Records History

    grant green's best solo is on "joshua fit"? imo not when you got stuff like "it aint necessarily so", "back talk", "street of dreams", "brazil" "caracas", "surrey with the fringe on top", "round midnight", basically every solo on grantstand and the george braith recordings, just to name a few. also eddie mcfadden deserves an entry. i'd pick any solo from JOS' "Cherokee"
  25. Holy Crap - More Unreleased Wes Montgomery

    this is all incredible and wonderful news. could you at least give a small hint, like just one sideman, or the year or a clue to the location, pretty please? i'm so hoping for more material from ronnie scotts. the 1955/56 sets should be most amazing, too. will the turf club recordings have buddy on vibes?
