Looking for release of Transition LP TRLP-18 Jay Migliori "Jazz Down Beat". Definitely existed at one time. Complete listing is in Lord discography. One song "Something's Gotta Give" was released in the Transition Sampler LP TRLP-30. The booklet for TRLP-30 also has a description of the Migliori session.

yeah, me too. Been curious about it.

When I was at Delmark in the middle '60s and we were purchasing Transition masters (we got a Donald Byrd and 2 Sun Ra sessions, one unissued) the master list provided to us said the Migliori was unissued and in the in the hands of Jay.

What's the back story on why some, but not all, of the Transition catalog went to Blue Note, and some to Delmark later?  And some, apparently, nowhere.  May be common knowledge, but I don't know it.  Seems especially odd that BN would have taken two of the three Donald Byrd titles, but not the third one.

I wonder why the Walter Davis trio tracks were omitted from the One Night With Blue Note Preserved CDs?

Walter Davis: piano, Reggie Workman - bass, Art Blakey - drums

Criss Cross

Bud's Bubble

I've Got Rhythm

Six additonal songs from other sets were omitted as well...

did the masters go to the artists who then sold or licensed them to certain labels?

No, all the material was in the hands of one entity. They circulated a list of the masters. The masters sold were crossed out and the new owner penciled in - either BN or Migliori.

For some reason I remember "Phoenix" being part of the company name. I always thought it was creditors trying to get their money back.

According to Jordi Pujol (Fresh Sound Records) many tapes were bequeathed to him from Migliori for release. I contacted Jordi Pujol and he said he could not find the tape for TRLP-18.

The CD's were identical issues of the vinyl albums.  The four albums featured either musicians who were signed to BN at the time or musicials who were going to obviously sell units.  Davis would not have met either of those criteria.  A box set of the full performances would be nice.

The Davis Trio tracks are marked "rejected" in the Lord Disco, as is "Paper Moon" from the nexr part with Hubbard, Fuller, & Griffin. There are four marked "unissued" and one more "rejected".

I wonder what Lord’s source was for the rejected status. They are listed as unissued in the Blue Nite Discography.

Certainly seems like a compatible rhythm section.   I've noticed that many rejected BN sessions are because of the drummer, and they regather with a different drummer a few days/weeks later and successfully cut the same material.

That was earlier with Alfred in control. Producers have profiles not labels. With the change of control labels may imitate but not duplicate.

I just did a bit of digging and found that two tracks unissued on the four LPs/ four CDs were included on the One Night With Blue Note DVD:

Lou Donaldson, Jimmy Smith, Kenny Burrell, Grady Tate:

Blues Walk

Stanley Turrentine, Jimmy Smith, Kenny Burrell, Grady Tate:

Scratch My Back
