Oscar Pettiford - Discoveries SJL 1172

9 posts in this topic

Hello

Could anybody confirm whether the LP Oscar Pettiford - Discoveries (SJL 1172) has ever been reissued on CD? I read a review in the Penguin Guide To Jazz (4th ed., I think, the one with Getz and Ray Brown on the cover), but as far as I can remember the CD catalogue number was wrong. I have also seen an overpriced copy listed for sale in gemm.com, but the seller (Argentinian) didn't have in stock anyway. The Allmusic reviewer says he wishes it will be reissued on CD someday.

Thanks in advance.

I've been collection Pettiford for years and I've never seen a copy of this title offered on cd. To my knowledge it was only issued on vinyl. There is no listing for a cd version in this excellent online Oscar Pettiford Discography

Thanks, Pete. I also think that my two sightings are just mistakes.

Thanks EKE and Brownie. I actually tried (like a couple of years ago) to get it from soundcity2000 and there was no response at all.

PS The October 1957 track mentioned by Lords is "Taking A Chance On Love", by Pettiford, Eddie Costa and Ed Thigpen, very possibly a left-over from the Bethlehem Winner's Circle session, subsequently included in the Discoveries LP.

The liner notes to my vinyl copy by Phil Schaap - who KNOWS everything :g - state that the track indeed comes from the 'Winner's Circle' session!

I don't know whether the LP was issued on American Savoy-CD but I have a copy of the French Vogue-Savoy Jazz VG 655 650142; issued in 1986.
