Discographical Forum

Article excerpt

This column is designed to encourage the interest of members in the entire range of discographical jazz research. Dick will emphasize the earliest period of collecting, beginning in the 1920s, and Malcolm from the late 1930s and up. However, both of us will happily overlap. Apart from independent research and articles from members, the column also will include small discographies and label listings, reviews of discographically related books and papers, and a continual update on work in progress among members. Each entry will have an 'MW' (Malcolm Walker) or a 'DR' (Dick Raichelson) preceding it, along with a number, allowing for easy reference and correspondence. The name of the individual who submitted the information will appear below the entry heading. Any corrections or additions to an entry should be forwarded to either Malcolm or Dick. These updates will appear in a future edition of the Forum. But mainly it will be an open forum for your questions and research. Please submit information to either:

Malcolm Walker, 23 Charles Street, Brighton BN2 1TG, UK

Warne Marsh - In Memoriam

This is the entry from Jack Goodwin's on-line discography: It's the best place for all Marsh inquiries. He lists three other broadcasts from this tour but this is the only single track ever issued. Bill.

MW/74 Wardell Gray

-submitted by Geoffrey Wheeler

I came across two variants of the Way Out Wardell LP jacket (Crown 5004). Both covers are divided in half vertically by a color field with the title of the album. One has a red field next to a head-on vertical photograph on the right of Wardell playing in a studio. The second cover has a blue field with a vertical photo of Wardell taken from the side. On eBay the two albums are separated by only two other albums so prospective buyers can directly compare the two offerings. I went through a total of 111 listings and found seven more copies - six with red and one with blue.

MW/75 Thelonious Monk

-submitted by Malcolm Walker

In November 1967 Thelonious Monk took a nine-piece band to Europe. Personnel was Ray Copeland, Clark Terry (trumpets), Jimmy Cleveland (trombone), Charlie Rouse, Johnny Griffin (tenor saxes), Monk (piano), Larry Gales (bass), Ben Riley (drums).

I am researching recordings by underrated trumpeter Ray Copeland for a future discography. Copeland toured Europe with the Monk band and I am trying to locate an itinerary of the band's engagements. So far I have only the following details: Thelonious Monk - The Nonet - Live :

Ruby My Dear (Rouse with rhythm only)

Wee See




Blue Monk


Issued on Le Jazz(UK) CD7

Theolonious Monk - On Tour in Europe :

Unknown titles

Issued on Affinity(UK) AFFD152(LP); CD192

That's all I have - can any member add to this?
