jazzcorner, 

I don't think the Bee Hive LPs have ever been issued on CD.  Sound is not good.  Music is great.

 

Lonehill plus RLR cover it all, I guess. Haven't double checked

Just checked.

LoheHill Jazz has:

CD 1 & CD 2 Track 1 recorded live at Bee Hive, Chicago, November 7, 1955. Rollins only on the first 4 tracks.
CD 2 Tracks 2-6 recorded live at Basin Street Club, New York City, April 28, 1956. Rollins on board.
CD 2 Track 7 recorded live at Copenhagen, November 12, 1953.

 

RLR has:

Disc One and Disc Two 1-2: Recorded Live at the Bee Hive, Chicago, IL June 30, 1955

Plus a live date in New York, Feb. 1956. Rollins only on the latter, not on the former.

That Formation Rollins-Merritt-Roach from 1966 is so important. I strongly hope it will be released as a CD.

Milestones, I assume that you're aware of this one:

R-2791282-1301186976.jpeg.jpg

Clifford Brown & Max Roach - Live at the Bee Hive (Columbia, 1979)

Recorded in 1955.  Rollins isn't the only tenor on these sides.  There's also Nicky Hill.

That means the Columbia CD has nothing to do with the 2 RCA LP's?

Can you list the tracks on that CD?

Thanks

At The Cotton Club 1956  album cover

You might like to check out RLR 88624, CLIFFORD BROWN AT THE COTTON CLUB (Cleveland) 1956, which doesn't seem to get a mention here. It's a 3 CD set, reasonably well recorded (live, 1956) featuring the group with Sonny on tenor. It also has 3 bonus tracks from a radio broadcast from Town Casino Buffalo NY).

This is not a strict, chronological discographical listing because, for instance, the material listed from the Cotton Club did not come to me labeled as "sets".  This is just the way it was grouped and this was the simplest way to list it here.  Same thing with the "Early Chicago 1956" material.  The Continental Restaurant material, OTOH, is two legitimate sets.

 

The broader point is that all of this material, excepting the last two sets with Kenny Dorham, was issued on Philology in the "Brownie's Eyes" series and it has been subsequently re-booted on a variety of labels including RLR.

 

I compiled it for my own listening years ago and I got 5-6 cd's out of it.

 

Note that the "1956 unknown location" set is the Elektra/Pure Genius material.  I think the Philology boot was after the Elektra issue.  Also, the second of the Basin Street dates does not feature Max Roach.  Willie Jone was the substitute.  Both dates were issued on Ingo as lp's and then re-booted on cd...I believe on RLR again.

 

But to the question at the beginning of this post, there' actually quite a bit of Sonny and Max on record.

 

And don't forget Freedom Suite.
