Since the inception of this project, I have included ten Joe Morris Blues Cavalcade Atlantic Records sessions as part of the Elmo Hope discography. The Bruyninckx and Lord discographies indicate that Hope is present on these sessions and several sets of liner notes state that Hope worked with Morris's band from 1948 to 1951. On the other hand, the only personnel present on these dates who are identified in source materials from Atlantic are the vocalists (see Michel Ruppli's Atlantic Records Discography). In reevaluating this situation, I have decided that there is really little evidence Hope actually participated in these recording sessions which were more rhythm and blues than jazz. So as of August 30, 2007, I am deleting these sessions until some hard evidence is obtained that Hope was involved. The dates are as follows: June 7, 1950, November 14, 1950, November 20, 1950, January 15, 1951, February 10, 1951, April 26, 1951, October 24, 1951, November 20, 1951, October 1, 1952 and December 23, 1952.

Rolf Ericson (t) on c-l; Harold Land (ts) on c-l.

Track f is listed as "Race For Space" and track i as "Into the Orbit." The longer version of "The Countdown" is listed as "Head Gear" on the Fresh Sound and Bel Canto issues. Apparently, the original tapes also titled the longer version as "Head Gear." The shorter version is a different take and not an edited version of the longer one. I am not absolutely sure which version is included on Gambit 69262 (2007 release). Track k is incorrectly listed as "Foreplay" on the English CD reissue. The remainder of Bel Canto SR 1004 is a Buddy Collette session.

Track b is listed as "Ecstasy," track e as "Trippin'" and track g as "Kevin." Most sources indicate that Douglas performs on alto saxophone on some tracks but that instrument is not audible (thanks to saxophonist Alex Hofmann for confirming this). Tracks c and g are trio (rhythm section) performances. Despite the album title, this appears to be a studio session and not one performed before a live audience.
