The following list is taken from Jerry Valburn's manuscript of
his updated "Duke Ellington on Compact Disc" in preparation. The
numbers at the end of each line represent the CD number and the track
number of the same recording on the Disky 3 CD set (see DEMS
03/1-19/1). Only the recordings from which an alternate take does
exist (all titles followed by -1, -2, -3 or -A) have been checked.
In case you detect an error in this list, please let us know.
Some errors have been found in the list of the 3 CD set:
The dates for East St. Louis Toodle-O; Black and Tan Fantasy and Jubilee Stomp on the 3 CD set, CD 1, tracks 4; 5 and 11 should read respectively: 19Dec27; 26oct27 and 19Jan28.

Association of Recorded Music BCCD 469 – Made in Canada for BCI Music – Hall of Fame – Duke Ellington – Swingin'
03/3 DEMS 22/1

RCA Bluebird 82876-55614-2 – Duke Ellington's Far East Suite
03/3 DEMS 22/2
According to the track listing at CD Universe for the new
Bluebird reissue of "The Far East Suite", five alternative takes are
included that were not previously included in the 24 disk RCA
Centennial edition. That massive album, subtitled "The Complete RCA
Victor Recordings, (1927-1973)," appears, in turn, to have two
alternative takes that are not included in the new Bluebird set:
Tourist Point of View, take -5 and Amad, take -5.
The new Bluebird has, in addition to the original album's nine tracks the following seven takes:
Tourist Point of View, take -4
(the Centennial edition's alternate is take -5)
Amad, take -7
(the Centennial edition's alternate is take -5)
Isfahan, take -2 (not take -22 as wrongly in the liner notes)
(is also in the Centennial edition)
Depk, take -15
(no alternate in the Centennial edition)
Mount Harissa, take -4
(no alternate in the Centennial edition)
Bluebird of Delhi, take -8
(is also in the Centennial edition)
Bluebird of Delhi, take -9
(the Centennial edition's alternate is take -8)
The original 9 tracks of the first LP (RCA LPM-3782) and the first
CD (Bluebird ND 87640) are identical.
The "original" 9 tracks on the (13 track) Centennial edition are the same as on the (13 track) "Special Mix" CD (Bluebird 07863-66551-2). However, they are different from the original 9 tracks on the first LP and CD releases.
The most important difference was reported by Damon Short in DEMS Bulletin 99/3-17/2: the connection between take -2 and (the insert) take -4 at the end of "Ad Lib on Nippon" was different. I was rather surprised to find out that the latest (16 track) Bluebird CD has the same 9 original tracks as on the first LP and CD and not (as could be expected) the same 9 original tracks as on the (13 track) "Special Mix" CD.
In addition, other minor differences indicate that we have no "special mix" this time: on the 16 track CD, track 1 is a bit longer; track 2 ends with two beats on the bass instead of one and the final note of track 4 lasts longer.
The record of re-releases with each time a bit more music is still in the hands of Blue Note for the series of 4 "Money Jungle" releases (2 LPs and 2 CDs). We hope that BMG will try to challenge that record. There may still be more material to make us happy with, in spite of our frustration for having to spend a lot of money to keep our collections complete.
SH was (as always) very satisfied with the smooth service of WorldsRecords, who has this CD in its catalogue under number 55614.

Track 11, I Got It Bad, is the repaired version. See DEMS 99/4-17.
The CD has 61:30 of familiar music.

Sackville SKCD2-2056 – Ben Webster & Teddy Wilson
03/3 DEMS 23/1
I found this CD, which is not mentioned in the Langhorn &
Sjøgren discography, in John Norris's Sackville Catalogue.
The first set of six selections was played by Teddy Wilson with Isla Ecklinger (b) and Peter Giger (d) at the "National" in Bern, Switzerland on 1May70: Stompin' at the Savoy (incorrectly titled Don't Be That Way); I've Got a Feeling I'm Falling & Ain't Misbehavin'; Honeysuckle Rose; Shiny Stockings; Take the "A" Train; Flying Home.
Teddy, Isla and Peter were joined by Ben in the following five selections: In a Mellow Tone; Stardust; Ben's Blues; I Can’t Give You Anything But Love; Sunday.
For Teddy Wilson and/or Ben Webster fans a must! For other lovers of good music: highly recommended!

Green Hill GHCD 5051 – A Tribute to Duke Ellington
03/3 DEMS 23/2
The long vanished LP on "Crown" and "Bright Orange," by a swinging big band of Los Angeles musicians, recorded on 13/14Jan60, entitled "Compositions of Duke Ellington," is now, nicely re-mastered, available on the Web Site <www.greenhillmusic.com> or by telephone: 1-800-972-5900 or 1-800-200-4656.
The band, directed by Maxwell Davis, included Conte Candoli, Ray Linn, Al Porcino, Jake Porter (t); Juan Tizol, Lloyd Elliott, Jimmy Henderson, Dick Noel, Tommy Pederson (tb); Mahlon Clark, Jewell Grant, Bumps Meyers, Ben Webster (reeds); Bill Hood, Jimmy Rowles (p); Al Hendrickson (g); Red Callender/Curtis Counce (b); Mel Lewis/Jackie Mills (d); B.B.King (vc).
These are the selections: Take the "A" Train; Cotton Tail; Solitude; Jeep's Blues; Jack the Bear; Mood Indigo; Main Stem; Sophisticated Lady; Don't Get Around Much Anymore; East Side, West Side (= The Sidewalks of New York).
Ben Webster does a creditable reworking of his solo on
Cotton Tail, and can be heard briefly on Jack The
It is likely Jewel Grant who takes the Johnny Hodges solo on Jeep's Blues. I hear his work also on Don't Get Around Much Anymore.
The clarity and fidelity of the Green Hill CD would indicate that the original stereo master tapes were acquired from their owners. The Bihari brothers did some important recording during their years with "Modern," "Crown," "Bright Orange," etc., and it is odd that so very little has been written about them.

Just a brief note regarding a really splendid concert
performance on the Long Player "Schweizerischer P 19841." by just
Anderson and Terry, accompanied by a rhythm section. The opener
West End Blues is wonderful!
Question: Is this performance currently available on Compact Disc? (It should be!).

Track 2 is the long version as on Me 1967 (5104b).
There are some different opinions about who the piano-player was in the 18May51 session. The liner-notes and Timner claim that tracks 6 and 9 are played by Strayhorn. The New DESOR claims that it was in both cases Ellington. I am not sure about track 6, but I am convinced that Ellington played in track 9.
I found this very welcome addition to my Ellingtonia collection in the Aug03 catalogue of WorldsRecords, item code: 49742 for $15.- (See for address DEMS 02/3-15/3).
This is a so called MultiMedia CD-ROM. It can be played on a regular CD player and it can also be put in a PC to read the liner-notes and to listen to music. SH
Chiaroscuro CR(D)352 – The floating Jazz Festival Trio – with Joe Temperley
03/3 DEMS 24/1
This CD has Joe Temperley, Junior Mance, Keter Betts and Jackie Williams.
In a Sentimental Mood; Single Petal of a Rose / Sunset and the Mocking Bird; In a Mellotone; Creole Love Call; Do Nothin' Till You Hear from Me; Jeep's Blues.
It is superb. Not only is it a marvellous CD, but I had the
great good fortune to be on the S/S Norway in October 1996 in the
Caribbean Sea when the recordings were made over the course of a week
- you can probably hear me clapping! The whhole thing is splendid, and
it is invidious to pick out particular tracks, but the 20 minute
Single Petal of a Rose / Sunset and the Mocking Bird is to die
for. Buy it. You won't be disappointed.
I have located the CD in the catalogue of WorldsRecords # 21713
for $ 15.- (02/3-15/3). I ordered one and I have played it several
times since I received my copy. I am indeed not disappointed,

Total time 73:52 of previously unreleased material. Liner-notes are by Scott Yanow.
This recently released CD must be a welcome addition to every Ben
Webster collection. It contains (in complete form) what must have
been the first of a number of broadcasts featuring Ben Webster at
this famous "Jazzhus". It shows how fortunate our friends in
Copenhagen were, when they could so easily attend Ben's performances
during his golden years in Europe.
CDM Records CDM 1001 – The Dom Minasi trio – "Takin' the Duke Out"
03/3 DEMS 24/5
Dom Minasi (guitar) Ken Filiano (bass) and Jackson Krall (drums) recorded live at the Knitting Factory NYC, 23Apr01: Satin Doll; Don't Get Around Any More [sic]; I Got It Bad; Take the "A" Train; Solitude; It Don't Mean a Thing.
Dom Minasi played in Joe Coleman's rhythm section. Joe called
the tunes, and they were always Duke Ellington tunes. Joe Coleman
played in the Ellington band as a replacement two or three times.
This seems to be the strongest link to Ellington, because it is
rather hard to recognise the tunes. The three musicians are great
instrumentalists, but I cannot give you the guarantee that you will
like this record. If you are a completist among the Ellingtonia
collectors, contact Jim Eigo, Jazz Promo Services, 269 s. Route 94,
