Why Music Remains Unreleased - Ask The Artist

2 posts in this topic

Not long after Scarecrow Press published the George Duvivier oral history/discography Bassically Speaking in 1993, I asked James Williams about his unissued duo session with the bassist, which was evidently one of Duvivier's final recordings. Williams told me that his own playing didn't measure up and that the music would not be released. I understand that William Paterson University inherited Williams' music archives after his death in 2004 and an inquiry to see if these recordings was included in the collection was never answered.

I also learned from a Concord Jazz publicist that Harold Mabern recorded a solo concert at Maybeck Recital Hall, but the music was rejected for release. I never brought it up with Mabern as I figured it might be a touchy subject, it is hard to imagine him having an off day.
