I remember an excellent session c.1967 with Kalaparusha and fellow tenorman Fred Schwartz at the house that drummer Doug Mitchell I shared in Hyde Park; bass player might have been Clyde Flowers. Also recall, from about the same time, an Ajaramu/Claudine Myers gig at a club on Stony Island where Kalaparusha and Roscoe sat in, and when "Happy Birthday" was requested for the standard reason, they proceeded to play on it quite seriously for a good length of time.

Wooden Joe Nicholas - Rare & Unissued Masters 1945-1949 (American Music). The 1945 sides are really excellent - most were not released at the time because Bill Russell was concerned about the excessive echo of the dance hall where they were recorded. Nicholas has lost a step or two by the 1949 sessions, but there is still much to enjoy, such as the previously unissued spiritual by Ann Cook, who made one record for Victor in the 1920s.
