In those days Norman Granz had appreciated the talent as Ralph Barn’s arranger.

So he produced ”Ralph Burns Among the JATP’s” .

The soloists include Jazz at the Philharmonic regulars Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Roy Eldridge Flip Phillips and Bill Harris and others.

According to Norman Granz “Ralph tried to capture the personality of the JATPs with his pen and baton.

Lord Nelson and His Boppers

June 5.2018

Fantasy Recordsの傘下であるGalaxy Recordsで気になるアルバムが一枚あります。

Milt JacksonとSonny Stittが共演した「In The Beginning 」

同社は創業時にはJohn Lee Hooker(G-201),B.B. King(G-202),Little Johnny Taylor(G-203)などR&Bの作品を発売していました。

そして4枚目にSonny Stitt and Milt Jackson(G-204)が発売されています。

詳細については  ⇨  こちらをクリック

今回は二人が共演した「 In The Beginning」について調べました。

Galaxy Recordsに録音したデータを記載します。(Jazz Discography Projectを引用)
Milt Jackson, Sonny Stitt – In The Beginning  (Galaxy LP 204)

Milt Jackson(vib), John Lewis(p), Alvin Jackson(b), Kenny Clarke(d), Chano Pozo(congas)
Detroit, MI, April, 1948

K5519 | 4004 Baggy Eyes
K5520 | 4003 Slits
K5521 | 4002 Autumn Breeze (as In A Beautiful Mood)

下記は2ヶ月後の録音です。Sonny Stitt が偽名「 Lord Nelson」で記載されています。
個人的にはRussell Jacquetと共演した下記4曲に興味を持っています。

Willie Wells(tp), Sonny Stitt as Lord Nelson(as), Milt Jackson(via), Will Davis(p), Jimmy Glover(b), Dave Heard(d) Detroit, June, 1948

K5461 | 4017 Stardust

** also issued on Galaxy LP 8204; Original Jazz Classics OJC-1771, OJCCD-1771-2; America (F) 30 AM 6072.

TOM LORD Discographyによると上記8曲(1948年6月録音)は「 Lord Nelson and His Boppers」となっています。

Lord Nelsonという偽名は麻薬が関係していると推察されます。(1948年から1949年まで一定期間レキシントン監獄に収容されていました)

それ故、Sonny Stittは翌年10月まで録音現場に現れていません(ディスコグラフィーが正確であると仮定してですが)

復帰後の録音は「Jay Johnson ‘s Boppers New York」


Here is Lord Nerson and His Boppers play “Be Bop Blues”.

Slim Gaillard and His Baker’s Dozen(1952)

May 6.2018

本日はBen Webster and Ralph Burns Orchestraを聴きながらベン・ウェブスター(Ben Webster)のディスコグラフィー(The Ben Webster solography by Jan Evensmo)を読んでいました。


Ben Websterは上記録音の2年前に面白いセッションに参加しています。

1952年12月にジャイヴ界の大物であるスリム・ゲイラード(Slim Gaillard)と2曲録音しています。

以下「The Ben Webster solography by Jan Evensmo 」から該当部分を転記します。


Ben Webster (ts), Slim Gaillard (g, vo), possibly Cyril Haynes (p), Ray Brown (b), possibly Milt Jackson (dm).
Two titles were recorded for Mercury:
1126  Gomen Nashai Solo 16 bars. (M)
1127  Potatoe Chips Brief intro. Faint obbligato. Solo 32 bars. Coda 8 bars. (M)

Under such bizarre circumstances, one wonders how it is possible to play at all without bursting into laughter! But BW makes some interesting contributions, not as memorable as ten years before if you remember that incredible Gaillard session, but particularly “… Chips” has some good tenorsax playing.

Bobby Jaspar(5)

August 13. 2017

Blossom Dearie and husband Bobby Jaspar by courtesy of Blossom Dearie HP Photo Gallery

Bobby Jaspar had many recordings in US and Eurrope.

From 1961 to 1962 he came back for one year to Europe giving many concerts in several countries, and making some of his last recordings.

Unfortunately he passed away by complications following an open-heart surgery operation.

He died in New York on Feb. 28, 1963, he was 37 years old.

Finally, I will  briefly introduce a few representative recordings of Bobby Jaspar.

Bobby Jasparはアメリカだけでなくヨーロッパでも多くのレコーディングを行なっています。



最後に、簡単にBobby Jasparの代表的なアルバムを紹介して今回の投稿を終わりたいと思います。

Here is Bobby Jaspar plays “There will never be another you”.

The legendary bassist Jimmy Blanton(5)

December 17. 2016


While on tour with the Duke Ellington Orchestra in late 1941, Blanton became seriously ill.

Unfortunately he was diagnosed with tuberculosis.

In 1943 he moved to receive medical treatment Duarte Sanitarium, near Los Angeles.

He had no family there.

Jimmy Blanton passed away in Monrovia, California on July 30, 1942.

If he had not passed away in 1942, most musicians suppose that Blanton would have been at the forefront of the bebop movement.

I found an  invaluable photograph from a collected papers of Journal of Jazz Studies.


Journal of Jazz Studies (Winter 2014-2015) Of Icons and Iconography: Seeing Jimmie Blanton Matthias Heyman Blanton and Johnny Hodges, (photograph by Otto Hess, original appeared in Metronome, January 1941.Every effort has been made to identify and acknowledge the rightful owner of this photograph).

Here is Duke Ellington and His Famous Orchestra play “Jack The Bear”.

Ray Brown played the duo recordings such as reminiscent of Duke’s work with Jimmy Blanton three decades before.

Here is Duke Ellington and Ray Brown play “TRIBUTE TO JIMMY BLANTON ´72”.
