Anyone have the Classic Capitol Jazz Sessions (#170) discography? The link on page 1 is a goner...

DISCOGRAPHY

For the purposes of this discography, only the first issue number of each matrix is listed unless contemporaneous issues exist.

The personnel and instrumentation have been provided by a research group of musicians and scholars, each of whom is an expert on the artists presented here. As was the case for our Beiderbecke, Trumbauer and Teagarden box set (MD7-211), a symposium was held at The Institute of Jazz Studies to correct any previous errors or omissions with the sides heard on this set. Additional information was gathered from the original job sheets and file cards that exist at the Sony archives in New York.

The germ of this discography stems from the following reference materials: Jazz Records 1897-1942 by Brian Rust (Arlington House), The Jazz Discography by Tom Lord (Cadence Jazz Books), Jimmy Dorsey: A Study In Contrasts by Robert L. Stockdale (Scarecrow Press), Clarence Williams by Tom Lord (Storyville), Pops by Thomas A. DeLong (New Century Pub) and King Oliver by Laurie Wright (Storyville). Information was also provided by Ray Mitchell whose Eddie Lang discography, Feeling My Way - Eddie Lang Discography 1902-1933, is scheduled for publication in the fall of 2002 (offered privately through www.langstune@hotmail.com or Raymond F Mitchell, 71 Combe Road, Farncombe, Godalming, Surrey GU7 3SL England.

78 label abbreviations: Ban for Banner, Br for Brunswick, Bwy for Broadway, Cl for Clarion, Col for Columbia, Cq for Conqueror, Dom for Domino, Har for Harmony, Mt for Melotone, Od for Odeon, OK for OKeh, Or for Oriole, Pm for Paramount, Par for Parlophone, PA for Pathe Actuelle, Per for Perfect, Pur for Puritan, Re for Regal, RZ for Regal Zonophone, Ro for Romeo, Sil for Silvertone, VT for Velvet Tone and Voc for Vocalion.

All first issues are American releases unless noted by a (E) for England or (Swe) for Sweden. ________________________________________________________________________

81083-B I�m Coming, Virginia (IR-arr) OK 40843

Note: The harpophone, a metallophone of the glockenspiel family, is a small, two-and-a-half-octave, unamplified vibraphone that was played in the lap. It was an accessory in drum kits during this period. Pitched an octave lower than the glockenspiel, it was struck with a hard mallet producing a sound similar to a celeste.

Note: The goofus is a keyboard harmonica which may be played either by blowing directly into the mouthpiece or through a length of flexible tubing that allows the instrument to be laid flat on a surface in the manner of a conventional keyboard instrument.

The hot fountain pen is a miniature single-octave clarinet less than a foot long with keyless tone-holes; its peculiar tone is due in part to the use of a saxophone mouthpiece. ________________________________________________________________________

78 label abbreviations: ARC for American Record Corporation (from mid 1935 to early 1938, ARC masters were issued with the same catalog number on Banner, Melotone, Oriole, Perfect and Romeo and will be designated by ARC in each case), Ban for Banner, Br for Brunswick, Cl for Clarion, Col for Columbia, Cq for Conqueror, Dec for Decca, Dom for Domino, Har for Harmony, Od for Odeon, OK for OKeh, Mt for Melotone, Or for Oriole, Par for Parlophone, Per for Perfect, Ro for Romeo, SE for Special Editions, VT for Velvet Tone and Voc for Vocalion. Brunswick, Odeon, Parlophone, Rex and Vocalion issues with an (E) were originally pressed in England. Odeon and Parlophone issues with an ONY or PNY prefix are New York pressings.Brunswick, Melotone and Vocalion masters that were recorded prior to December 1, 1931 are not included since they are currently under license with Universal Music.

In addition to the regular 78s released to the public, ARC also recorded background music for use in theaters only which were almost always instrumentals ranging from organ solos to dance band material. Pressed with the same matrix on both sides of a 10" 78 rpm recording ("F" series) as well as a 33 1/3 rpm recording ("E" series), these rare "Theater-Use" sides were cut as part of a regular ARC session.

As with some previous Mosaic sets, we have enlisted a number of musicians and jazz scholars to participate in a round table discussion to ascertain, to the best of our knowledge, the personnel for these sessions. Unraveling who is present on these sessions is a daunting task, especially when it concerns the ARC Studio (or House) Band, and therefore we invited both Bozy White and Jeff Healey into the fray. Mr. Healey, who also assisted us with our Beiderbecke/Trumbauer/Teagarden and Venuti/Lang box sets, is a highly regarded musician and collector whose fine ear was of enormous help in determining the personnel and unearthing rare Berigana. Mr. White is the premier Berigan discographer for over 50 years and without his input this discography would have been riddled with errors and omissions. His long awaited Bunny Berigan discography (which will also devote an entire chapter to recordings previously thought to contain Berigan - some 600 titles!), is scheduled for publication in the year 2003, and will be offered privately through Bozy White, Box 10208, Oakland, Ca. 94610-0208.

This germ of this discography stems from the following reference materials: Jazz Records 1897-1942 Fifth Edition by Brian Rust (Storyville), The Jazz Discography by Tom Lord (Cadence Jazz Books), Jimmy Dorsey: A Study In Contrasts by Robert L. Stockdale (Scarecrow Press), Bunny Berigan: The ARC Years 1931-1936 (IAJRC 1013 CD) discography by Bozy White, Artie Shaw: A Musical Biography and Discography by Vladimir Simosko (Scarecrow Press).

The following is a collective personnel of those who were employed by the American Record Corporation during the 1930s and who could very well be the "unknowns" that are listed in this discography: Benny Baker, Jules Berkin, Stirling Bose, Mickey Bloom, Bob Effros, Hymie Farberman, Fred Farrar, Louis Garcia, Harry Gluck, Tommy Gott, Frank Guarente, Mannie Klein, Charlie Margulis, Bill Moore, Phil Napoleon, Tommy Thunen, Ruby Weinstein, Mannie Weinstock, Lloyd Williams (tp) (Sylvester Ahola is another trumpeter employed by ARC, but he wrote to Bozy White stating he never did get to record with Berigan), Larry Altpeter, Will Bradley, Charlie Butterfield, Chuck Campbell, Tommy Dorsey, Sammy Lewis, Carl Loeffler, Glenn Miller, Jack Teagarden, Lloyd Turner, Joe Yukl (tb), Larry Binyon, Lyle Bowen, Arnold Brilhart, Bob Chester, Wally Curtis, Jimmy Dorsey, Alfie Evans, Max Farley, Elmer Feldkamp, Fran Frey, Benny Goodman, Mutt Hayes, Chet Hazlett, Bennie Krueger, Tony Parenti, Pete Pumiglio, Arthur Rollini, Hank Ross, Babe Russin, Sid Stoneburn, Henry Wade, Larry Tice (reeds), Harry Bluestone, John Bowman, Nat Brusiloff, Al Duffy, Walter Edelstein, Bernard Hirsch, Harry Hoffman, Murray Kellner, Lou Kosloff, Lou Raderman, Joe Raymond, Joe Venuti (vln), Frank Banta, Rube Bloom, Irving Brodsky, Lew Cobey, Fulton McGrath, Joe Meresco, Milt Rattenberg, Justin Ring, Arthur Schutt, Frank Signorelli, Joe Sullivan, Bobby Van Eps, Phil Wall (p), Perry Botkin, Clay Bryson, John Cali, Tony Colucci, Tommy Fellini, Larry Hall, Carl Kress, Eddie Lang, Dick McDonough, Benny Mortell, Tony Sacco, Frank Sylvano, Roy Smeck, Frank Worrell (g, bjo), Artie Bernstein, Dick Cherwin, Ward Lay, Lou Shoobe, Sam Shoobe, Hank Stern, Joe Tarto (b, tu), Larry Gomar, George Hamilton Green, Joe Green, Stan King, Chauncey Morehouse, Johnny Morris, Sam Weiss, Johnny Williams (d). Although Victor Young was the house director from early 1931 to mid 1934, there were others who filled in as the occasion arose. They were Dick Cherwin, Lou Gold, Ed Kirkeby and Bennie Krueger.

When Young left ARC in August of 1934 to join the newly formed (American) Decca company, trombonist, pianist and leader Russ Morgan and veteran bandleader Jack Shilkret were appointed house directors until the demise of ARC in 1938. Morgan brought to the studios, in addition to some of the above list of musicians, the following collective personnel: Russ Case, Pee Wee Erwin, Harry Shilkret, Dave Wade (tp), Mark Bennett, Jerry Colonna, Jack Jenney, Red Jessup, Jack Lacey, Russ Morgan, George Mazza, Al Philburn (tb), Rudy Adler, Dick Clark, Dave Harris, Johnny Ingram, Slats Long, Joe Marsala, Lou Martin, Reggie Merrill, Johnny Mince, Toots Mondello, George Napoleon, Gene Prendergast, Paul Ricci, Gil Rodin, Adrian Rollini, Sam Ruby, Andy Sannella, Artie Shaw, Sid Trucker, Milt Yaner (reeds), Mac Ceppos (vln), Frank Froeba, Harry Merker, Russ Morgan, Terry Shand, Jack Shilkret, Claude Thornhill (p), Dave Barbour, Carmen Mastren (g), Cozy Cole, Billy Gussak, Neil Marshall, Milt Schlesinger (d).

Producer's Note:
The selections presented here are all of Bunny Berigan's Brunswick, Parlophone and Vocalion sessions as a leader as well as the Mildred Bailey and Bud Freeman-led Parolophone dates in which he played a significant role. We have also included selected ARC sides where Berigan as a sideman, offers a significant solo passage or obbligato. We have not included a number of recordings where a short Berigan solo is strictly a paraphrase on the melody, regardless of whether it be from a commercial dance band arrangement or within a jazz context. Therefore you will not find in this collection such Berigan items as Let's Try Again by Smith Ballew or Was That the Human Thing To Do?by the Boswell Sisters. Although Love Letters in the Sand(session E) falls into this category, we have decided to include it for its rarity.

Although the sound quality of these sessions will differ from track to track, we have made every effort to obtain the best possible source material, be it the original metal parts, test pressings or commercially released 78s. However, we would like to point out the following problems: Session (Y) Underneath the Harlem Moon was in very bad condition and search for a better copy proved fruitless; Session (DDD) had excessive echo in the metal parts possibly due to problems with the wax master. We commend all those listed above who worked so creatively and so

I've posted some links to "hidden" Mosaic discographies (only the recent OOP sets) on the AAJ board:

The Morgan discography can be found here:

I know this is a pretty old post and it may have been mentioned recently, but the old links don't work anymore, presumably since Mosaic recenty changed their web site.

Anyone have the Prima/Manone Discography? I started tagging my lossless files when it was still available - now, getting back to it, it is nowhere to be found. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Cheers

13208-A Is That Religion? (GM-arr) Br 6558
13209-A Harlem Lullaby (HS-arr) Br 6558

Note: Matrix 13207 does not include Bailey.
Although discographies have listed Larry Binyon (ts) and Dick
McDonough (g) for this session, both were playing a job in
New England. Carl Kress is our choice as guitarist since he
is the voice on the underground recording of “Manure Is On
The Air” which the Columbia files show as being recorded as a
tag to this Dorsey Brothers session.

and 14158 do not include Bailey. The Columbia files show that
14 men were used on matrix 14157. Aural evidence, however,
suggests the above personnel with a possible inclusion of
another reed (either Lyle Bowen or Jim Crossan). The
personnel for 14159 and 14160 are as above.

19750-1 A Porter’s Love Song To A Chambermaid Br 7744
19752-1 Picture Me Without You Br 7732

Note: Matrix 19751 does not include Bailey.
The Columbia files show that Simeone handled the 1st alto
book while Long played 3rd alto and solo clarinet.
With this session or any other subsequent Norvo / Bailey
session we have not assigned an arranger credit after each
title since it is a safe to assume that Eddie Sauter is the
arranger (unless noted otherwise).

present on matrix 20218 probably because of the sax break
after Bailey’s first chorus.

Producer’s Note: Both the Norvo and Bailey discographies have
been riddled with errors and omissions throughout the years.
However, with this set the personnel and instrumentation was
obtained by the original job sheets and AFM cards at Sony as
well as from ex-Norvo sidemen Eddie Bert, Buddy Christian,
Leonard Goldstein and Jerry Jerome. Arranger credits were
taken from Down Beat and Metronome magazines as well as the
Benny Goodman, Red Norvo and Eddie Sauter archives which
reside at the Yale Music Library.
Although intense effort was made to obtain the best source
possible, the sound quality will differ from track to track.
Years ago, the norm in re-issuing 78s was to take out as much
of the surface noise as possible which, although at times
made for a very clean sound, lost most of the music. Our
engineer Doug Pomeroy, who is generally thought of as one of
the premier 78 transfer wizards (hats off of course to John
R.T.Davies and Jack Towers) has brought to the forefront
practically ALL of the music and eliminated to the best one
can do much of the surface noise. In most cases we used the
original metal parts or a clean 78 copy for transfer unless a
tape, CD, or LP reissue source had better sound. However, the
only source we had on “My Little Cousin” (session DDD) was
taken from a simulated stereo tape.
In the September 15, 1940 issue of Down Beat, a news item
appears about an upcoming release of “Frankie & Johnny” with
Mildred backed by Teddy Wilson and Roy Eldridge. There is no
mention of this session in any file at Sony and there is no
further evidence that this session ever took place.

A few questions for you ever-informative sources of knowledge:

My father gave me this Monk 10cd box set a few months ago. It's a good deal with a lot of music, but not the best sound, but hey I can't complain about a gift.

Posted Image

Does anyone know the lineups, what these recordings were for, or any of that information? I think at least a lot of it in the beginning is from his blue note recordings because I have that box, and there is definitely some overlapping. Here is the tracklisting:

CD 1

Recollections (W. Thomas) 2:41
Flyin’ Hawk (W. Thomas) 2:49
Drifting On A Reed (W. Thomas) 3:04
On The Bean (W. Thomas) 2:53

Evonce (Quebec) 3:05
Monk’s Mood (Monk) 3:08

A few questions for you ever-informative sources of knowledge:


Does anyone have the discography for the Monk Black Lion/Vogue Mosaic? Or any of the rest of the information provided with the set? I have the LP set but lack the booklet.

Thanks,

Jay

I just noticed this thread:

http://www.organissi...showtopic=21646

I understand now--duh, The Complete Quartets with Sonny Clark obviously does not include the quintets or sextets of March 1, 1962, June 18, 1962, or September 7, 1962. Edit: Although, it does seem to include the quintet date of December 23, 1961 but not the quartet date of October 27, 1961 with different bass and drums. Hmmn. Clearly, the Mosaic is more comprehensive, as is usually the case.

Producer's note:

The wealth of material that Jimmy Smith recorded for Blue Note from 1956 to 1962 could generate a dozen boxed sets. We've selected this three-day run in the studio not only because of the exceptional quality of the music, but also because it is a wonderful microcosm of his output. There are sextet jams, Jimmy's own trio with and without a soloist added and an all-star trio with Art Blakey and Kenny Burrell, as well as some experimental solos and duets. These three days set the pattern for the various contexts in which Smith would record throughout his Blue Note career.

Because of the extremes in tune length, we have had to stray farther than usual from chronological order in order to fit this material into the LP and CD formats. Since we have had to break the mold in this regard, we've tried to make the LP sequencing as musically sensible as possible. The first selection on Discs Two and Three are out of chronological sequence.

Unfortuately, no Francis Wolff photos exist from these three sessions. For the booklet, we have selected other session shots by the participants from the period of 1956-58.
