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, 16 Wyndham Street, Brighton BN2 1AF, UK

Dick Raichelson - PO Box 240544, Memphis, Tennessee 38124, USA

MW/93 Buddy Collette/ Chris Columbo, submitted by Jean Louis Ginibre

Recently I enjoyed discussions on the Crown and affiliates labels. What a mess these guys did! I am wondering someone could supply the personnel, date, and location of the following albums: Buddy Collette on Broadway (Surrey SS1009) and Chris Columbo Quintette (Strand SL1044). Have these mysteries been resolved, ever?

MW/94 Unknown vs. Unidentified

Submitted by Jean Louis Ginibre

I think that discographers should cease to use the word 'unknown' when they mention (or don't mention for that matter) musicians that remain 'unidentified'. These people are not 'unknowns' (someone knew them at the time of the recording, for example) but history has failed to retain their identity. In fact they remain 'unidentified' for the time being and probably forever. …
