Shorty Rogers Rendezvous Ballroom 9/27/52

5 posts in this topic

Sounds of Yesteryear is releasing a Shorty Rogers at The Rendezvous Ballroom performance dated 9/28/52. Is this truly new music or just a re-issue of the 9/27/52 session previously released by the Los Angeles Jazz Institute CDs LAJI 6 and 7?

The Sounds of Yesteryear is listed on Amazon with a September 15 release date.

This looks like new material. On the LA Jazz  Institute CDS 6 and 7, only one track 'Didi' is listed as coming from the Sept. 28 date.

Ken Poston who wrote the liner notes for both CDs may know better. He posts here.

I did the research to locate the ad used in the liner notes for the initial release of this concert, Lighthouse LAJI006. There was only one concert on September 27, 1952, a Saturday.

Shorty had performed at the Rendezvous Ballroom earlier that year on June 17, 1952, for a night to dawn dance for Orange County high school seniors. Shorty's group kicked off the all nighter from 11:00 - 2:00 AM, with the Pied Pipers 1:00 - 1:30 AM, Dan Terry Orchestra 2:00 - 5:00 AM, Jeri Southern 2:30 - 3:00 AM, and Jerry Colomnna 3:00 - 3:30 AM. Alex Cooper, a southland DJ, MC'ed the event. I do not believe this event was recorded. 

The second CD release of the 09/27/52 concert noted that Bob Enevoldsen also recorded the concert on his wire recorder. LAJI possesses this recording as part of the Bob Enevoldsen archive that was donated to LAJI. I do not believe that Kern Poston has attempted playback of the wire recording.

Shorty performed at the Rendezvous Ballroom on Saturday, July 11, 1953, with a 17 piece big band. That concert was recorded by Bob Andrews and the music has made the rounds among collectors over the years.

I would be very surprised if the Sounds of Yesterday CD offered any material that has not been previously released.

Concert date was July 11, 1953, not June.
