The New DESOR corrections


DEMS 11/1-27

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

 

Pages 33, 36 and 1369. Session 3803, 2Feb38: add after Lost in Meditation: JP LP-14.
Session 3814, 5May38 should be deleted.
LP 0449, Jazz Panorama LP-14: track B01 is 3803c and not 3814a. It should no longer be underlined. See 11/1-12

Page 60. Session 4201, 21Jan42. My copy of Victor 27856 has take 2A in the wax on side A Moon Mist. This is also reported in the booklet of the 24 CD box Duke Ellington, The Complete RCA Victor Recordings (1927-1973), RCA 09026-63386-2. The alternative take -1 was originally issued on the French LP RCA FXM1 7301.
Bo Scherman

Moon Mist, take -2, has pauses in the intro, which take -1 doesn't have.
Sjef Hoefsmit

Pages 376 and 1359. The New DESOR states that DE6439nj, the second version of Mood Indigo from the 6439n medley, is unissued.
However, it is included on the Foxy 9001 LP. Both versions of Mood Indigo are present, and the medley appears to be complete on the LP.
Brian Koller


You are right. This must have been a slip of the pen, because the Medley is listed as completely issued in the old Desor as 934l on page 688 of Volume 13. Maybe the confusion is due to the fact that this last part of the Medley was not mentioned on the jacket of the Foxy LP, although other errors on that jacket have not been copied. The structure is documented in The New DESOR on page 1029, but I prefer the structure as mentioned in the old Desor, with a coda of 2 bars.
Sjef Hoefsmit

Page 433. Session 6650, 26Jun66. The Medley 6650a is released on the DVD "The Best of the Dean Martin Variety Show Volume 20" Guthy-Renker DV0046 copyrighted 2004
This Medley was followed by an awful "sing along with Dean" Medley (see 04/1-31), which is not on this DVD.
Brian Koller

Page 984. DE3605b, Kissin' My Baby Goodnight, should be 2°IA&DE instead of 2°IA.
Brian Koller

Page 993. DE3610, Lazy Man's Shuffle. The New DESOR describes this as
1°4BAND,8JH;2°4BAND&CBk,8CBk;3°(nc)8LB;4°BAND&JH;5°(nc)8HC;6°4BAND,8RS;cod8CBk
but RS, the composer, is often in the foreground, and it appears the description should be
1°4RS,8JH;2°4RS&CBk,8CBk;3°(nc)8LB;4°RS&JH;5°(nc)8HC;6°4BAND&RS,8RS;cod8CBk&SG
Brian Koller

Page 1036. Moonlight Fiesta. The description for 3502c should be "Same as 3502b" since it also has "cod2BAND,2DE".
Brian Koller

Page 1113. DE3612a, Scattin' at the Kit Kat. The New DESOR describes this recording, 21Dec36, without a Cootie Williams trumpet introduction. And, indeed, there is no CW trumpet intro on The New DESOR Disc 0269 [page 1324] Track D01 (CBS 2LP The Complete DE Vol. 7).
However, believe it or not, there is a Cootie Williams trumpet introduction on the version of 3612a on The New DESOR Disc 0919, track B19, correction sheet 3030 (Best of DE Sony&BMG 4CD). This CW trumpet intro differs from that on 3702c and 3702d, 5Mar37, since Sonny Greer's drumming is readily audible on the trumpet intro on those two later recordings but is not audible on the Sony 4CD 3612a.
Brian Koller

See also DEMS Bulletin 82/3-5 last item on the page. Mosaic MD11-248, Disc VI, track 11 is (obviously) also complete.
DEMS

Page 1323. LP 266, CBS 88035, "The Complete Duke Ellington - Vol.4":
A02 is 3205b not 3205a, A03 is 3205a not 3205b.
Brian Koller

Page 1323. LP 267, CBS 88082, "The Complete Duke Ellington - Vol.5":
Both takes of Merry Go Round (B03 and B04) are DE3302a.
Brian Koller

Page 1324. LP 268, CBS 88137, "The Complete Duke Ellington - Vol.6":
Track B02 Moonlight Fiesta is 3502c instead of 3502b. Track B04 is 3502b instead of 3502c.
Brian Koller

Page 1327
. LP 278, CBS 88653, "Duke 56/62-Vol. 1": Track D01 Track 360 is 5804xp instead of 5804a.
Also correction-sheet 1007, session 5804, 4Feb58 should be corrected.
Brian Koller

Page 1333. LP 236, Columbia CL-2365, "The Ellington Era Volume Two - Part III", track A04 Pyramid is listed as 3819e but it is 3819d.
Brian Koller

Thanks to the new Mosaic release, your statement could be checked and confirmed.
DEMS

Page 1422. LP 734, The Old Masters 44, "Duke Ellington Opens the Cave - Volume One"
Track B04, the first listing of Don't Get Around Much Anymore from the first column should be Don't You Know I Care? instead of "same" in the second column.
Brian Koller

Correction-sheet 1053, session 3403, 26Feb34. All four takes of Ebony Rhapsody are designated as unissued, but 3403a and 3403b have since been issued on New DESOR Disc 0919 (4CDset "The Best of Duke Ellington", Sony&BMG 88697302362, correction-sheet 3030), and 3403d is issued on New DESOR DVD 0924 "Pre-code Hollywood Collection" Universal 61106092, correction-sheet 3031).
Brian Koller

Correction-sheet 3029, 0915 DVD Eagle Vision "Duke Ellington at the Côte d' Azur".
The first 12 seconds of Such Sweet Thunder (Track 103) are from DE6664m. The rest is from DE6665j, as stated.
Brian Koller

I agree. I would say the first chorus is from 28Jul66, DE6664. The rest (chorus 2 - 7) is from 29Jul66, DE6665.
