New York 1957/1965 [no label, 2CD]

Bandstand USA, live at the Cafe Bohemia, New York, August 3 and 10, 1957. Portraits In Jazz, The Half-Note, New York City; February 5, 1965 (pitch corrected). Good to fairly good radio broadcasts.

Thanks to michaelmee for sharing the tracks at Dime.

On 19 June 1955 Julian and Nat Adderley arrived in New York on a trip for the former to work on his Master’s Degree at New York University. That first night in the city the brothers went to the Café Bohemia to hear the Oscar Pettiford band, which was the club’s house band at the time. Jerome Richardson, who was the group’s regular saxophonist was unavailable that evening due to a recording session. Pettiford asked Charlie Rouse - who was in the audience - if he would sit in, however Rouse did not have his saxophone with him.

Pettiford then noticed another audience member, Adderley, who had a saxophone case with him and told Rouse to ask this unknown man if he could borrow his horn. Instead of lending the horn Adderley asked if he could sit in with the group. Reluctantly, the leader complied and allowed Adderley to play. Overnight Adderley rose to prominence on the New York jazz scene. On 21 June he officially played his first night at the Bohemia; on 28 June he made his first recording with Pettiford’s group; on 14 July he recorded his first album as a leader. By October 1957 he was a member of the Miles Davis Sextet. - wikipedia

  2. Very nice, thank you for posting this! I dig the period with the sextet and the addition of Charles Lloyd here (Yusef Lateef also played with them). Great great stuff. Thank the gods for people like Boris Rose et al who recorded these radio shows and somehow kept them alive all these years.

  5. I knew Boris Rose. Any idea how to get in touch?

  6. Boris Rose died in 2000. Not sure that any of this material would have originated from his acetates and tapes. He favored Birdland for recordings, and many other sources exist for both airchecks and location bop recordings. Musicians themselves would not infrequently make unofficial recordings of their gigs that later went public.

  7. On track 107, to have that interruption is so unfortunate. What a nice tune, Miss Jackie’s Delight, to have that happen.
