  1. I have a complete run of Timeless Historical CBC, Jazz Oracle, Retrieval and Frog. There is not one I unrecommend. I love the 2 Benny Goodman issues. The single disc 1928-1931 With his Brunswick/Vocalion recordings and an assortment of dance band recordings and the 2 CD set 1931-1935 with the Columbia recordings. The 1931 Melotone recordings are on Jazz Oracle. Big Charlie Thomas 1925-1927. A forgotten cornetist. The California Ramblers Adrian Rollini withe the Golden Gate Orchestra (= California Ramblers)

  10. Looking on the website the forth extra title is: Scenes in the city Single edit 3:20. Not enough to tempt me. Lookin at the timing this LP reissue uses the mono edits for Scenes in the city, N.Y. Sketckbook and Nourog. The differ from the stereo edits. From the Onttonen Mingus website: Additional information by Uwe Weiler (September 4, 1997): Mingus re Bethlehem/Modern Jazz Symposium: I was working on the topic in July '97, at the time when I was happy to purchase the original mono release Bethlehem BCP-6026, maroon label, deep groove, BCP-12-6026-A-R1 (side 1) BCP-12-6026-B-R1 (side 2) on wax, which I was in search for more than 20 years. I compared the original release with the official US cd re-issue, edition 1997, Bethlehem 20-40092 stereo, which contents, by the way, also one alternate and two new tunes. Indeed, there are some different segments within the tracks SCENES IN THE CITY, NOUROOG and NEW YORK SKETCHBOOK if compared with the mono and stereo releases. Obviously, the mono release was the more satisfying edit for Mingus, but due to the relatively new and young stereo technique at the time in October 1957, the stereo tapes had some awful dropouts, either by the mike or/and by the tape itself. They had to make some re-recordings which had to fit to the timing of the mono edition. Anyhow, there's no complete new take of the three mentioned tracks but there are sometimes very long alternate take segments within the tracks which are different to the more known stereo releases. NEW YORK SKETCHBOOK mono-8:48 stereo-8:51 The mono take has a 4:52 "middle part" which is a different take insert compared with the stereo take's middle part 4:33 a. mono 0:00-1:17 same take insert b. stereo 0:00-1:17 same take insert a. mono 1:17-6:09 different take insert b. stereo 1:17-5:50 different take insert a. mono 6:09-8:48 same take insert, but ChinaTown interlude: 0:30 b. stereo 5:50-8:51 same take insert, but ChinaTown interlude: 0:52 ChinaTown interlude a. 0:22 cut from b. NOUROOG mono-5:02 stereo 4:49 The mono take uses a different take insert 1:27 during Hadi's ts solo compared with the stereo take's insert 1:14 a. mono 0:00-2:20 same take insert, Hadi solo starts at 1:51 b. stereo 0:00-2:20 same take insert, Hadi solo starts at 1:51 a. mono 2:20-3:47 different take insert, different Hadi solo b. stereo 2:20-3:34 different take insert, different Hadi solo a. mono 3:47-5:02 same take insert 1:15 b. stereo 3:34-4:49 same take insert 1:15 Hadi's solo at the very end of the tune is the same edit... SCENES IN THE CITY mono-11:23 stereo-11:49 The mono release uses both a different take insert in the beginning 2:49 and the end 2:14 compared with the stereo take's beginning 3:05 and end 2:24, whereas the "middle part" 6:20 has the same take insert in mono and stereo releases. a. mono 0:00-2:49 different take insert b. stereo 0:00-3:05 different take insert a. mono 2:49-9:09 same take insert, 1), Knepper solo starts at 8:38 b. stereo 3:05-9:25 same take insert, 1), Knepper solo starts at 8:53 a. mono 9:09-11:23 different take insert, Knepper solo different b. stereo 9:25-11:49 different take insert, Knepper solo different 1) "...Now, here I am standing at my window in my old building..." The original mono release has a far more superior sound compared with the stereo recordings. Yet some additional information by Uwe Weiler (December 28, 1997): Meanwhile, to come back to the subject MODERN JAZZ SYMPOSIUM, I've bought quite a lot of various LP and CD pressings in order to check as to which extent the individual pressings are using stereo or mono versions of SCENES OF THE CITY, NY SKETCHBOOK and NOUROOG. Available at my file are now: 1. Bethlehem(US) BCP6026 MONO Orig. LP 2. Bethlehem(US) SBCP6026 STEREO (Orig. LP only on cassette copy) 3. Polydor Special(GB) 545111 STEREO LP (p '60s): Duke's Choice 4. Polydor(D) 2335 079 MONO 2 LP (p '70s): Jazz History Vol.19 5. Affinity(GB) AFF 105 MONO LP (p 1983): Scenes In The City 6.

  11. I have a slightly diffrent look on a Pops Okeh/Columbia/Victor set From a previous post: Louis Armstrong Okeh, Columbia and Victor 1925-1933 sessions. Off course this material is not difficult to obtain. Most of it anyway. But at the moment these recordings are not available in away that is legal everywhere. Including only the leader sessions it would amount to 8 CD’s. But in this period Armstrong was also a side man in 9 vocalist sessions (21 tracks). This would mean an extra CD. But on the one hand I would not like the vocalist sessions intertwined with the leader sessions but on the other hand I would not like to miss Hociel Thomas’ ‘Sunshine Baby’ Just listen to Armstrong and Dodds play as if their lives depend on in. If Universal would cooperate and allow a CD with the Erskine Tate, Lil Armstrong, Johnny Dodds, Jimmy Bertrant and the Louis Armstrong 1934 Paris sessions to be included than together with the 1935-1946 Decca set we would have 21 consecutive years of Armstrong studio recordings complete.
  12. Mine arrived today after an other delay yesterday. I’ll be spinning disc 1 This evening.
