LPs that have never made it into CD

Ornette Coleman Crisis

I'd go nuts if this and Ornette at 12 ever got out of the limbo they're presently in. Hopefully, Ornette's got some plans for this and other supposedly long-neglected material (I'm looking at you, possible future boxed set).

Shirley Scott - Scottie Plays The Duke

(AFAIK only one track from the album has appeared on CD - the comp, "Memorial Album")

No chance of a full reissue now I suppose :(

Shirley Scott's Impulse albums would make a decent Mosaic box. Hardly any of that material has been n CD.

MG - Several Impulse albums (Roll Em, On A Clear Day, Queen Of The Organ) were reissued on CD - US/Japanese editions, all of which are now OOP. You can probably get used copies from Amazon marketplace, or try downloading from the Verve website.

Not much out of ten LPs plus Stanley's "Let it go". There's also another LP's worth of live stuff from the "Queen of organ" session which came out on that CD. I expect there's good unissued stuff as well. But at least 12 LPs worth, of an important player like Shirley, and one who's well liked, looks like a good Mosaic project to me. Six/seven disc set.

There's a George Coleman quartet LP that I'd like to see issued on CD. Musically it's a companion album to "Playing Changes":

George Coleman - "Live"

Ronnie Scott’s Club, London, April 19-20, 1979

George Coleman-tsx; Hilton Ruiz-p; Ray Drummond-b; Billy Higgins-d

[a] Blues Inside Out George Coleman 11:30

Walking [sic] Carpenter 15:12

[c] Stella By Starlight Washington-Young 21:35

PYE LP N 121

One of the most underrated tenors out there. I love all of his later stuff.

Kyo, beautiful album that George Coleman album with Hilton Ruiz! Surprised it was not reissued on CD.

The Ronnie Scott JazzHouse label did release a G1995 live eorge Coleman date 'Blues Inside Out', a quintet gig with Peter King!

Not that I know of, but that looks like a cool record. Corbett discussed it recently in Downbeat.

As far as I know Ran Blake's Rapport and Film Noir (Arista) have never made it to CD.

Great to see mention of that one again, sure brings back memories. I was at the club that week for this particular George Coleman gig. Absolutely first rate - can't recall if they were recording the night I was there.

I do believe I've seen a French issue.

Has Max Roach's Solos (Baystate) ever made it to CD?

Not that I know of, but that looks like a cool record. Corbett discussed it recently in Downbeat.

It is a cool, and a unique record - there were some solo tracks on other Roach LPs, but not another whole solo drumming album, IIRC. I saw him do two of these live around that time - he really was into it.

Baystate also did a live album of Max' percussion ensemble M'Boom, recorded live at a Netherlands festival - a CD reissue would give opportunity to release the complete performance. The tro issued tracks are a beauty!

That Baystate label released some good stuff - I have an LP of a Charles Tolliver Quartet with Nathan Page that is nice. Marion Brown did LPs on that label, too .....

Someone mentioned an East World LP from Japan - that was another label that issued some gems.

Same goes for Denon - some was on CD, but the majority still awaits a reissue, if only outside of Japan. I have a Reggie Workman solo bass LP on Denon (he also worked as a A & R man for that label) that is stunning!

I'd like to hear that Workman.

Denon, Baystate and EW are all great labels. The Marion Browns on Baystate are fine, indeed.

Then of course there's Trio/Whynot/Nadja, which put out TONS of great shit.

Henry Allen 'Feeling Good'!

Would love to see this Columbia album get a Mosaic single treatment! With any available additional material.

The title tells it all!

i just found a mickey tucker denon album on CD. i bought it because it was cheap but it isn't really my thing. half of it is a trio with reggie workman on bass.

not label-wise, but just music wise i think the fourth way deserves at least something on CD. what label did they record for? harvest? that was some pretty good early early fusion.

Yes, that was on British EMI Harvest. There was a cheapo CD reissue in Italy. A nice album. Bennie Maupin's Almanac LP on Improvising Artists shares the rhythm section and is a nice companion.

I've always had a soft spot for the 1957 Impulse recording, "Zoot Sims Plays Four Altos". It's kind of a novelty record where Sims plays alto and then overdubs the results...kind of like an alto sax section. It features John Williams on piano, Knobby Totah (one of the all-time great names in jazz) on bass and Gus Johnson on drums. I have this on vinyl but I don't think it's ever been on CD.

Up over and out.

Dave: The original label was ABC-Paramount, not Impulse. At least parts of the similar album where he overdubs on alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones were issued on CD by GRP, but I think you're correct in the "Four Alto" record not having been reissued.

Dave and other Zoot on alto fans -- try to get a copy of John Benson Brooks' "Folk Jazz U.S.A." (VIK), from 1956:

http://classicjazzguitar.com/albums/artist....jsp?album=1064

If it's not on Fresh Sound or the like, it's a prime candidate for this thread. It also has Al Cohn on baritone, and Nick Travis on trumpet. Brooks was the composer of "You Came a Long Way from St. Louis" and other pop songs; later wrote "Alabama Concerto" (OJC) for Cannonball, Art Farmer, Barry Galbraith, and Milt Hinton; and was a close associate of George Russell.

Odyssey of the Oblong Square by Steve Reid

I'm frankly happy we have so much of Reid available, but I agree...

How about more material from frequent running parter Charles Tyler... and for that matter, the legendary, undersung Earl Cross? (ep1, who can't stop proselytizing...)

By far, Pete Fauntain's best record has never made it to CD, IMO.

"Pete Fountain Day" (1959).

Coral CRL 57313

Fountain, Pete, 1930- ; clarinet

Koch, Merle; piano

Hirsch, Godfrey, 1907-1992; vibes

Bagley, Don; bass

Sperling, Jack, 1922-2004; drums

I'd love to see Richie Cole's "Alto Annie's Theme" on CD. There's a killer version of Jeannine not to mention a lot of other great playing.
