The New DESOR corrections
(Suggested corrections April 2001)
Page 63. Session 4219 — Jul/Aug42.
Our tape from this occasion does not fit with the DESOR description.
4219a&b are OK, but (to our ears): 4219c Chelsea Bridge clearly has Jimmie Blanton on bass and turns out to be the very classic Standard Transcription 4120b from 17Sep41, which we know from various releases.
4219d Concerto For Cootie has not RN but CW on trumpet. Thus this version must be from 1940, but it is different from all four recordings in 1940: 4006, 4010, 4014 and 4019. This means that we have here a fifth version, possibly also from a Hotel Sherman broadcast.
Can you please check and investigate this matter? Either our tape is a fake and a genuine recording 4219 exists..... or ALL 4219 tapes contain the same montage and the session's identification is not correct.

See your discussion in 00/4-23. You were waiting for our opinion about the vocalist who sang She during this session. We are convinced that it was Jimmy Grissom and not Ozzie Bailey.

Page 220. Session 5616 — 10Jul56, New Haven.
I wonder whether I've missed something in DEMS-Bulletins related to this date, because my tape not only contains a complete Medley, 5616g with a complete
Just Squeeze Me, followed by It Don't Mean A Thing, Solitude, C-Jam Blues, I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart & Don't Get Around Much Anymore; it also has three titles after the Medley: V.I.P.Boogie (2:56), Jam With Sam (3:37) and National Anthem (1:26).
Nielsen's disco shows these additional titles. Timner does not in any of his editions, neither does DESOR. Where is the problem/the misunderstanding?
This matter has never been discussed in DEMS yet. I agree, also my tape is complete.
Pages 234 (and 1269). Session 5709 — 7Mar57.
We only know take -7 of West Indian Dance. Other takes however exist and (although they all remain unissued) should be mentioned in the New DESOR:
- West Indian Dance CO57520- (1:53) kind of rundown
- West Indian Dance ; CO57520-1 (2:13) complete
- West Indian Dance ; CO57520- (0:59) not complete
- West Indian Dance ; CO57520-2 (2:27) complete
- West Indian Dance ; CO57520-4 (2:30) complete
- West Indian Dance ; CO57520-6 (2:24) complete
Page 551. Session 6962 — 15Nov69, Genève.
See the previous discussion in 00/4-23. The question is where to put the selection Fleurette Africaine. We do not know the date or the location. Can anyone help us?
Page 615. Session 7140 — 27Jul71.
Monologue, 7140ai: Delete DE (p), add Wild Bill Davis (o) + DE (tk).
Pages 775 (and 151). Brown Penny, 4724e as issued on CBS LP 32564 and CBS CD 462985 is edited. It plays for 3:05 with 1° KD, on both releases. The Social Security Administration Series "The Genius of Duke" has the same Brown Penny in its program #34 hosted by Buck Clayton. Here we seem to have the complete (or at least a longer)
take -2 playing for 4:10 with: intBS;1°KD;2°(nc)16KD.
"The Genius of Duke" LPs are mentioned in DEMS 97/4-8; 98/1-19/3; 00/1-14/6; 00/2-12/1 and 00/3-10/1.
A complete listing can be found in DESUK 4/4-20,21&22. In this list (and maybe also on the LP) the title is misspelled as Brown Berries.
Pages 1113 (and 29). Scattin' At The Kit Kat, 3612a has a short intro by CW, not mentioned in DESOR and only present on the FMRS-LP.
See also DEMS 82/3-5.
Page 1166. Art Baron, in his 21Feb01 presentation for TDES, Inc. NYC: "Sultry Sunset was in point of fact written by Tyree Glenn, then 'borrowed' by Duke Ellington and retitled; Mr. Glenn repossessed it and renamed it How Could You Do A Thing Like That To Me?"
Page 1379. Marlor Productions — ELL-90, Track A01 should read: until 4th chorus from 4902e with the first 8 bars of the intro omitted, the following choruses from 4908c; track B06: not only ends at the 4th bar of the 5th chorus, but is also missing the first three bars of Duke's intro, which were also covered with comments by the announcer in the original Just Jazz broadcast.
Page 1389. Ozone 12 — 1001, track B04, add: also last 10 bars omitted.
