  1. I just watched it too. I don't think I'd ever seen all of it before. It is indeed wonderful.
  2. "Josephine" by Jimmy Babyface Lewis

    Thanks so much.
  3. Does anyone here have information about who plays on "Josephine" by Jimmy Babyface Lewis?
  4. Wow Thanks. This isn't even in The New DESOR. IS it ok to share this with the Duke Ellington List-Serve?
  5. Now reading...

    Do you think Alan Furst's books capture it well?
  6. Gil Evans's "Svengali".
  7. Arthur N. Rupe Foudation

    WOW. It's in Santa Barbara, where I live, and I've never heard of it.
  8. Could you explain the difference please. I guess you mean "transcriptions" were made at the club itself and "airshots" were taken at a remotes place having been sent over telephone wires-- which apparently Savory did for a living.)
  9. In '42 they were broadcast by NBC.
  10. There are several air checks of Ellington from the Hotel ShermanChicago.
  11. "Gone" from Miles Davis and Gil Evans Porgy and Bess

    IIRC (and I often don't) shortly after the film opened there was an article in Time or Newsweek citing all the P&B records that had been released and saying that the Miles/Gil was the best or perhaps that it was even the best selling.
  12. "Gone" from Miles Davis and Gil Evans Porgy and Bess

    I forgot. I have it too. It's interesting (I mean that in a good way.) Summertime by the Ellington band is out of place but otherwise it is a pretty good attempt at presenting the entire show with an a narrator and a variety of singers playing roles: there's Mel Torme and Francis Faye in the titles roles but also Johnny Hartman, Betty Roche and even (briefly) Bob Dorough.
  13. "Gone" from Miles Davis and Gil Evans Porgy and Bess

    I have Miles, Ella and Louis, Bill Potts, The Clark Terry doing Gil's arrangements, the Pete Jolly, and Ray & Cleo. Once owned Belafonte & Lena Horne-- didn't care for it.
  14. "Gone" from Miles Davis and Gil Evans Porgy and Bess

    Was there once a thread about all the jazz versions Porgy and Bess? I just found another: In the Charlie Parker Records box set that came out a few years ago there's a record called Pete Jolly Gasses Everybody where all of the songs are from P&B. I think that makes about the 6th version I have. I don't know if it counts as jazz but one of my favorites is the Norman Granz produced one with Ray Charles and Cleo Lane.
  15. Bob Dylan corner

    Hmmm. I wonder if they'll use any of Renaldo and Clare? And IIRC Joni Mitchell played more than one show. (I saw the Revue in Toronto and even saw Renaldo and Clare, though I don't remember much about it.) And BTW there's already a bootleg series box-- vol 5-- from 1975 and the Rolling Thunder Review.
