Musicians who recorded several albums

15 posts in this topic

Another list. :rolleyes:

Here are the rules:

1) The artist or group must have recorded two or more albums, but only one for each label.

2) If the artist is a co-leader, his name must be mentioned first. (so Booker Little's recordings with Eric Dolphy, where Dolphy is mentioned first, don't count.)

3) For the 78 era, let's say only one session for each label.

4) If anyone gets confused, majors are allowed! ;)

Here are a few to start with:

Booker Little

one album each for United Artists, Time, Candid and Bethlehem

Chuck Wayne

Progressive, Savoy, VIK, Focus, Prestige, Choice and Statiras (if AMG is to be trusted)

Lou McGarity

Decca, Jubilee, Argo and Fat Cat's Jazz (I trust AMG again)

Lawrence Brown

Clef and Impulse

First, clarification - is New Jazz the same label as Prestige, Moodsville, Trusound etc?

First contender I've thought of

Grant Green Jr - Paddle Wheel, Venus, Jazzeteria

Gloria Coleman - Impulse, Mainstream

Jimmy Coe - United (1 LP's worth in several sessions), Time (Indianapolis), Weeden International (Coe's name mentioned before Paul Weedon's)

Bill Easley - Sunnyside, Milestone

Ray Crawford - Candid, Dobre, United National

Basil "Mannenberg" Coetzee - Kijima, Mountain

Barney Rachabane - Jive Afrika, Jive Jazz (do these count as one or two?)

Dave Hubbard - Sybarite Music, Mainstream (1 LP & 2 tracks on comps might have been same session)

Bobby Forrester - Dobre, Lollipop

Joe Carroll - Prestige, Vogue, Epic, Charlie Parker, Spotlite, Jazzmania (DAMN, there was a 45 as well as an LP for Charlie Paker!)

OK, one more to add.

Linda Ketana - Gallo Jazz, Gallo Urban

I was looking her up on Google to find out whether her other album was also on Gallo Jazz, when I found a South African on-line CD (and other stuff) retailer! So, playing these silly discographical games isn't entirely a waste of time!

Alan Shorter - Verve, America.

Charles Moffett - one for Savoy, one for his own CMR label.

Marzette Watts - ESP, Savoy.

Until you get to the Universal and Label Bleu years (1990s), I believe Michel Portal label-hopped with every release.

Kees Hazevoet - Peace, KGB, Snipe.

Marc Levin - Savoy (reissued as a BYG), Enja, and a self-released thing that I am entirely forgetting the name of.

Sirone - Of The Cosmos, Serious Music (now reissued on Atavistic).

Revolutionary Ensemble - ESP, India Navigation, RE: Recordings, Horizon, Enja/Inner City, Pi.

You can count them as different labels if it helps coming up with new names. If nothing else we can have a special category for different subsidiaries (if that is the correct term in this case).

Here are a few more names:

Jack Millman

Decca, Era & Liberty

Bill Potts

United Artists, Colpix & Jazz Crusade

Vi Redd

United Artists, Atco

Right, that means Linda Kekana is in.

Valerie Capers - Atlantic and I can't remember :(

Bill Easley has more albums than the two you list below. In addition to those on Sunnyside and Milestone, he has albums for Evidence, 18th and Vine (two on that label, so he doesn't satisfy the criteria for this thread), and a recent release on American Showplace Music.

Gloria Coleman - Impulse, Mainstream

Jimmy Coe - United (1 LP's worth in several sessions), Time (Indianapolis), Weeden International (Coe's name mentioned before Paul Weedon's)

Bill Easley - Sunnyside, Milestone

Ray Crawford - Candid, Dobre, United National

Basil "Mannenberg" Coetzee - Kijima, Mountain

Barney Rachabane - Jive Afrika, Jive Jazz (do these count as one or two?)

Dave Hubbard - Sybarite Music, Mainstream (1 LP & 2 tracks on comps might have been same session)

Bobby Forrester - Dobre, Lollipop

Joe Carroll - Prestige, Vogue, Epic, Charlie Parker, Spotlite, Jazzmania (DAMN, there was a 45 as well as an LP for Charlie Paker!)
