The New DESOR corrections
We remind you that these corrections are merely suggestions. They are not (yet) accepted by the authors of the New DESOR. Unsigned suggestions were brought in by Hoefsmit.
Pages 4 and 1282. 8Nov27, 2711a. On the Vocalion recording-sheet and on the filing card the title is You Will Always Live On in Our Memory.
Page 42. 8Jun39, session 3913. The first release of Barney Goin' Easy was on Vo 5378 and not on Vo 5376.
Page 45. 22Nov39, session 3923. The first release of Minuet in Blues was on Vo 5378 and not on Vo 5376.
Page 46. 15Feb40, session 4004. The recording ledger lists three reed-men on the 15Feb40 Cootie Williams session: "Bigard, Hodges and Carney," but not their instruments. Discographies show Bigard playing clarinet only, but I don't hear a clarinet on the date, so he must have played tenor-sax throughout. One wonders why not Ben Webster played the tenor in this session.
Pages 141, XXXIV and 880. Add Chaugogagog Maushaugagog .Good Fishing.
Page 269. 7Jan59, session 5902. Scrupulously watching the video recording of this "Timex All-Star Show No. 4" does not confirm the presence of Francis Williams in the Ellington band.
Page 1385. Music Masters 65110-2. Add to the note: Track 1-15 is not complete, 24 bars are missing. See 06/2-32.
Page 1446. What is the correct date when Wellman Braud died? DESOR says 29oct66. The editor of the Newsletter of the Toronto Chapter 40 of the Duke Ellington Society (April 2006) said: 24oct66. The New Grove (1994 edition) said 27oct66. The record should be set straight.
Page 1450. Thelma Carpenter' s birth date was 15Jan. She died indeed in 1997. She had always told me that the year was 1922, which would have made her 75 when she died, but her family used the 1920 date they said was on her driver's license, which made her 77. Either one could be true, but I know she was still in her late teens when she joined Teddy Wilson's band in 1939.
Page 1469. Hodges' birthday. The year 1907 seems doubtful. Michael Palmer's web-site (see 06/2-31) says 1906. I've researched about 20 sources. About half of these say 06 the other half say 07.
Page 1477. I read in an article by Andrew Gilbert about Randy Weston in Globe Correspondent of May06, made available through Duke-LYM by Bill Saxonis, that Melba Liston died in 1999 in NYC. No specific date was mentioned, but who knows, maybe someone will step forward to supply that date.
