For completists only.... in Discography Posted 16 October On 10.10.2020 at 11:24 PM, sgcim said: It's hard to follow an artist all the way to the end. Towards the end, they usually go somewhere I don't like, lose what they used to have, or over- record and I know all their licks. If they die young, or quit after hitting some type of wall, it's easier to have most of what they did. One example of that is: Eddie Costa- dead at 31, but leaving behind an extensive discography as a studio musician. I think I have just about every jazz session he ever played on. He was just starting to add McCoy's bag to his playing when he died. Others that I have made a concerted effort to have a full discography of are: Tal Farlow- Every note he played up to 1960, and then he lost it. Joe Puma- I think I have most of it. Dick Garcia- All I lack are private tapes of him jamming with his family on Sundays that his nephew has, but aren't for sale... Ed Bickert- Just about all of his leader and sideman dates. Jimmy Raney- I even have stuff never released. Johnny Smith- all of it Lenny Breau- all of it. yeah. i think i have most of raney's recorded output including many bootlegs. same for doug. i also have almost everything roland prince ever recorded, again including many bootlegs. i got most of grant green's recordings including the unissued KD and quebec, complete session reels from his BN sessions, etc. i got most of wes montgomery (anyone got the unissued portions of ronnie scotts?) and probably one of the largest pat martino collections out there, including the unreleased vanguard album and tons of live recordings from the 60s until 2018.
