The New DESOR corrections


DEMS 12/2-20

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

 

Page 143. 5Dec46 shows Hiawatha as movement 2 of the suite and Minnehaha as movement 1.
This differs from the Musicraft 464 Star Series label which shows Hiawatha as Part I. See
http://ellingtonweb.ca/Hostedpages/DoojiCollection/78s-40s/DE4651a-TheBeautifulIIndians1Hiawatha-Musicraft464-mx5824-3.jpg

and the Parlophone R.3088 label which shows Minnehaha as Part 2. See
http://ellingtonweb.ca/Hostedpages/DoojiCollection/78s-40s/DE4651d-Minnehaha-Part2ofTheBeautifulIndians-ParolophoneR3088-Musicraftsession-%285824-1%29-f8e7_12.jpg

See also the Musicraft listing at http://settlet.fateback.com/Musicraft200.htm at Catalogue number 461.

I suspect Ellington intended Minnehaha to be Part 1, since New DESOR shows he played it before Hiawatha in a couple of concerts, but ...
Has this been commented on in the DEMS bulletins? I couldn't find anything, but my search engine doesn't search the PDF files very well.
David Palmquist

No this matter has not been discussed in one of the DEMS Bulletins. You are right. Minnehaha was always played before Hiawatha. I think however that The New DESOR respected the ASCAP copyright list in which also Minnehaha  came first.

Page 150. The 29Sep47 personnel list includes AH (Al Hibbler) but I think he was out of the band this month. The track listing shows WH (Woody Herman) as the vocalist. The record label for the Argentina Columbia pressing of Rumba Vaquera (Cowboy Rhumba) names Herman too. See

Page 246. A discussion on Duke-LYM with Augustin Perez Gasco made it clear that there were two concerts at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi on 22Jan58 and none on the 20th. Session 5801 should be documented as being the first concert on the 22th.
Ulf Lundin

Page 570. If you go to Wolfgang's Vault <http://www.wolfgangsvault.com/duke-ellington/> you will find a concert at the Municipal Auditorium New Orleans of 25Apr70. I have downloaded that concert and I have compared the corresponding titles with the so called second set at the Al Hirt Club on 23Apr70, in The New DESOR documented as session 7033. They are identical. The second set at the Al Hirt Club should be deleted and the old recording 7033 should be combined with the downloaded recording from Wolfgang's Vault into a new session at the Municipal Auditorium on 25Apr70.

Page 1385. 0532 Music Masters "The Great Chicago Concerts" 65110-2. A discussion on the Duke-LYM list made it clear that from track 1-15 Ride Red Ride, the second chorus is omitted.

Correction-sheet 1088, 2nd edition and Correction-sheet 3029. On "The Last Jam Session" DVD, New Desor Disk 0915, between DE9068y and DE9068z, DE plays the piano introduction to Hello, Dolly (similar to DE7226b from the "Cool Rock" CD).
Brian Koller

Correction-sheet 3033, the listing for DVD 0928, "Reminiscing in Tempo
omits Track 018, Stormy Monday Blues.
