The New DESOR corrections


DEMS 12/1-41

We remind you that these corrections are merely suggestions. They are not (yet) accepted by the authors of the New DESOR.

 


Page 24. item DE3407a. It shows the record was Cs 7504, which means Cosmopolitan, but both the 1954 Wax Works and the Cosmopolitan label itself show the number is 7501.
The label is reproduced at http://ellingtonweb.ca/Hostedpages/DoojiCollection/DE3407a-MyOldFlame-Cosmopolitan7501A-C1008(Weiner)dukecosmoa.jpg
Jepsen gets the label number right but shows a different date. Bakker doesn't mention it. Timner doesn't either.
David Palmquist

Pages 186; 873 and 1370. On track 12 of the CD "at Birdland 1952" (New DESOR Disc 0455, page 1370) there are several bars comprising most of the intro of Frankie and Johnny played by the Ellington orchestra prior to Things Ain't What They Used To Be. This admittedly brief performance is unlisted on page 1370, or page 873 under Frankie and Johnny, or page 186 for the DE5223 session.
Brian Koller

Page 1322. Disc 0263, "The Complete Duke Ellington Vol. 1", CBS 66607.
Track C04 is 2803d instead of 2803c,
Track C05 is 2803c instead of 2803d,
Track C06 is 2803f instead of 2803e,
Track Co7 is 2803e instead of 2803f,

At least relative to corrections for Disc 0509 on page 1381 in The New DESOR, mentioned in DEMS 11/2-18.
Disc 0263 track D08 The Mooche is 2811b instead of 2811a. It is the same take as on track 17 on Neatwork Vol. 1.
Brian Koller

Page 1394. Per DEMS 03/3-19/1, a note should be added to Disc 0580 that the trumpet intro to Light on Track C01 is from 4302g. I have Prestige 2PCD-34004-2 and Hall of Fame JG-626 and the opening trumpet solos of Light are different.
Brian Koller

Page 1429. On Disc 4, Track 3, of New DESOR Disc 1428, the Verve 8CD set of the Cote d'Azur concerts, DE6664h, El Viti, is incomplete. It cuts off during Cat Anderson's first long solo.
Since the source recording is truncated, the New DESOR description on page 860 is incorrect, unless a different and complete recording of DE6664h exists, in which case a note should added on page 1429 that the track is incomplete.
Brian Koller

In the same concert (of 28Jul66) Disc 5, track 1, The Old Circus Train, 6664s is missing something at the start. The same is true for this selection on the LP Verve 711054. There are also many small parts missing in the Ella Fitzgerald portion. My tapes however are complete.
