“Live at the Plugged Nickel” — just *not* Miles Davis

70 posts in this topic

Question: Were there any other albums — jazz, or otherwise — recorded at The Plugged Nickel — other than Miles in Dec ‘65?

Likewise, to expand the topic — are there any other live albums recorded some at less-than-ubiquitous venues… …venues that are otherwise known primarily for just one or two particular live releases?? (Like the Plugged Nickel)

Forget the Village Vanguard, or any of the really better/best known venues…

I’m looking for some lesser-known venues that never the less, had more than one (but still only a handful, or maybe even just a couple), different live releases??

 

EDIT: Knowing this board, this topic will surely devolve into including discussion of venues where only one live album was ever recorded — so we might as well include that too, from the git go.

How many records/groups were recorded live at Minton's (Jerry Newman doesn't count)? Count Basie's? Small's Paradise? Harlem clubs (as opposed the the Apollo Theatre).

Not all that many, right?

Jimmy Smith - Live At The Club Baby Grand (and this fits the original parameters of this thread, because there were 2 albums recorded there - vol. 1 and vol. 2).

 

Johnny "Hammond" Smith - Black Coffee (recorded at the Monterey Club, New Haven, CT).

Charles Earland - Living Black! (@ The Key Club, Newark, NJ).

No, NOT Lonnie LISTON Smith, the other Lonnie Smith.

Grant Green recorded Alive! at the Cliché Lounge (literally, as well as figuratively).  Don't know if anyone else made a live album there.  If not, then I guess recording there would not be a cliché.  Just to be clear, I like clichés.  It's up to the user to do something imaginative with them.

As far as Minton's goes, these Griff & Lock records come to mind:

Those are the only two that I know of.

 

And there's this Joe Newman record from Count Basie's:

Grant Green did Minton's alos. As with the Jaws/Griff thing, one night made into more than one record.

As far as Basie's, I also know of these:

I think there was more Lock & Griff from Minton's, about 4 LPs worth total IIRC, but it was packaged and repackaged in confusing ways and I can't quite get all the details straight without looking them up.  but fine performances by a great band and very much deserving of further recognition IMHO.

There's another 2 LPs worth or more listed in the discographies, but apparently it's gone missing and may well never come to light.  Crying shame that.  I love Alfred and Francis, but the choices they made then are not necessarily the ones that I'd make now.  How long was Minton's a going venue?

Which was reissued/re-titled as The Breakfast Show. So you can, recreate the entire evening, maybe.

According to Peter Losin, Miles played at the Plugged Nickel again in 1969 and somebody recorded it.  I vaguely remember that Bob Belden released some recordings ("Milestones"?) from that gig on the Net, for whatever reason.  And now, as usual, available on YouTube...

Aside from the obvious -- Ahmad Jamal -- I don't know of any.

"Joe Henderson in Japan" was recorded at the obscure "Junk Club" in Ginza, Tokyo.  I heard that It was run by a Chinese gentleman, closed in ca. 1985, but one of its former employee opened another club, "Swing".
