I don't see the CD you're looking for when I go to the East Wind site.

I'm sure they'll eventually have it.

........ Or am I going to have to cross the Himalayas on foot, rent a camel, brave the Spartan Winter, risk my life against the Tribal Warriors of Afghanistan, scale a 1000 foot wall, grab a copy and run and then return the same way, bribing border guards to look the other way?

 

Yes.

That was my assumption and why I posted the link.

I emailed Eastwind yesterday & received a quick response - they will be getting in copies of this & the new Eric Dolphy CD (Muses) ASAP - were released on Nov 25 in Japan

 

Maximum Rare Records has copies listed (Japanese online dealer - been dealing with them for the past 2 years & service is good plus shipping rates are low)

 

http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f2cabf26f

 

also the Dolphy

 

http://www.ebay.com/...=item565e7dd1fe

 

these ain't cheap (all prices are 2600-2800 yen or $30 to $33 US on all dealers I've come across) - still think they're worth it, esp the Dolphy with the unreleased track (Muses) & alternates

How much music is there on the Powell disc? Can anybody provide timings?

 

These ARE pricy ... and I think I won't get the Dolphy. I'd be all for a 2CD set of the entire sessions though, but this one seems to be a bit expensive for a few alternates and not that much music (I know there's one new tune there, too, but 40$ for one tune, by all my love for Dolphy ...)

Got mine too! Pricey but I couldn't do without it. IMHO he may be the most profound jazz communicator of them all.

Who do you think should be paid?  OTOH, I hate to see "someone" make all the bucks.

From the Eastwind web site:

 

"A discovery of the century!
Never-before-released live recording by Bud Powell from Birdland in 1957!
Very good sound quality engineered by the Bell Sound Systems!
Individually numbered limited edition - only 999 copies pressed!


This live recording by Bud Powell with his quintet featuring Donald Byrd, Phil Woods, Paul Chambers and Art Taylor was not only never released before, but never even mentioned in any discography or documents, thus completely unknown to us.

Powell was in a so-called "stable" period in October 1957, and with the stellar, younger musicians, performed superbly. Everyone gets to stretch as each of the four tunes here lasts at least nine minutes and as long as 15 minutes. In addition to the great performance and the rare combination of musicians, the quality of the recorded sound, although monaural, is pretty good. According to Symphony Sid, who emceed the concert, this session was recorded by the Bell Sound Systems and intended to be released by the Roulette label. Nobody knows why it did not happen and this tape was left undiscovered for 56 years. In addition, as far as we know, this release contains the only "Lover Man" ever recorded by Powell.

This is undoubtedly the most highly anticipated historical release of the year! A must-have item for all jazz enthusiasts!

Recorded live at Birdland, New York City, in October 1957. Mono."

Well, I´m lookin forward purchasing that.

 

About "Lover Man": It´s not the only '"Lover Man" But recorded.

He did a short but very nice version with Pierre Michelot and Kenny Clarke on the "Life at Blue Note Cafe" which was reissued on ESP Disk.

There is some confusion if it was done in 1961 or 1962, but it´s a very good record, much better than "Portrait of Thelonious" and as I said, the only "Lover Man"  until then. He plays it with the original arrangement, with the intro and the coda, like Diz and Bird did it with Sarah Vaughan......

I wondered why Bud didn´t play it more often. He played "I remember Clifford" almost on every record from 1961 on, but seemed to have "forgotten" about Lover Man......

I´m really lookin forward hearing this CD, for more than one reason:

1) I got recordings of Bud from November 1957 at Club Saint Germain (Cookin´at Saint Germain)  and he really plays very fine, so he must have been in better form than the years before.

2) because it´s with two great horn players. There are too many trio albums of Bud. Even if Bud plays fine on let´s say "Bud plays Bird" also from 1957 for Roulette, it´s not very interesting because of the quite unispired  Duvivier and Art Taylor. Nothin´happenin from the rhythm section, bop is much more than just keepin time. Same on the Victors, not very much happenin.

 

3) Dance of the Infidels: I remember during the same year 1957, Donald Byrd recorded it on an Hank Mobley album for Blue Note, so it might be very interesting what he did with it when playing it with the composer himself.

4) Groovin High: Bud didn´t play it very often. One time with Zoot Sims, and another time in Sweden at Golden Circle, and Lover Man, because I got only one recorded version of Bud playing it (very fine) in Paris.....
