Gigi Gryce (con) on b; Milton Hayes (v) on d.

At the time of this session, Gigi Gryce was a student at Boston Conservatory. Boston-based vocalist Margie Anderson confirmed in an interview that Gryce was present in the studio to oversee the performance of his composition. The personnel are unconfirmed. Hayes sings on track d and is presumed to be the drummer. He and pianist Anderson were musicians in the Newark, NJ area during this period.

All titles unissued.

a, b performed as medley.

These are recordings of jam sessions, some tracks of which were to be issued on the Zim label. The tapes are in the possession of Art Zimmerman. The mc is Eddie Curran. The personnel are incomplete and collective, presumably over several dates. Another unidentified trumpet player and a tenor saxophonist (Wilber?) are heard on some tracks. Tracks a and b are not really a medley but rather a merging of the two melody lines. Many titles are incomplete and the sound quality varies. Timings shown include announcements and applause.

In addition to the tracks listed, Zimmerman's records indicate the presence of another version of "Perdido," two tracks whose titles are unknown, one track labelled as "Ad Lib" and two untitled piano solos performed by Gryce. None of these have been auditioned by the authors.

Some thoughts on the soloists:
Track a/b - Jordan, Wilber, trumpet (?), Gryce, Pettiford (cello), Jordan, Roland
Track c - Roland
Track d - Pettiford (cello - audio problems), Jordan (?), bass (probably Pettiford - drop out during solo), Gryce (track ends during his solo)
Track e - Pettiford (cello), McGhee, Jordan, Pettiford (cello)
Track f - McGhee (track starts during his solo), Pierce (?), Gryce, trumpet (?)
Track g - Gryce, McGhee, Pierce (?), bass (probably Pettiford), Gryce/McGhee four-bar exchanges
Track h - trumpet (?), Pierce (?), McGhee
Track i - McGhee
Track j - Pettiford (bass)
Track k - McGhee, tenor saxophone (track ends during solo)
Track l - Pettiford (bass)
Track m - McGhee, Gryce, track ends chaotically
Track n - Pettiford (bass), McGhee, Pierce (?)
Track o - Pettiford (bass)
Track p - Pierce (?)
Track r - McGhee, Gryce, Wilber, trumpet (?)
Track s - Pettiford (bass)

All titles on:      RLR (Sp.) CD: 88651 — Clifford Brown: The Lost Rehearsals 1953-1956   (2009)

According to the liner notes of the CD, these recordings were made by Clifford Brown and are described as rehearsals of what appears to be part of the Tadd Dameron band of the time. The notes do not reveal the source of either the recordings or the information about them. The tracks are mostly fragments and sound more like a jam session than a formal rehearsal. The personnel, location and date are assumptions based on the recordings the Dameron band made for the Prestige label on June 11, 1953. Aural evidence confirms the presence of Brown, Gryce and Golson. The sound quality is very poor and tracks d and e have a different ambiance than the others suggesting that all the titles were not recorded at the same time. Track e is listed as "Bula-Beige Blues."

Gigi Gryce solos on "Paris the Beautiful" and "La Rose Noire" whereas the alto saxophone soloist on "Purple Shades" is Anthony Ortega. "La Rose Noire" features solos by Cleveland and Gryce. Although listed as rehearsals, the incomplete takes of "La Rose Noire" were obviously spliced together to produce the issued take. Vogue (Jpn.)

Vogue (Jpn.) DY5903-3 is a bonus LP never sold individually but given to purchasers of volumes 1-4. The incomplete version of "I Can't Get Started" issued on this LP is the ending of a take, but clearly different from the ending of the complete version available on the digital download. Not having found a copy of the CD Vogue (Fr.) 74321 88116 2, I am not absolutely sure that it contains the complete version.

Jimmy Gourley (g) on a-b.

"No Start No End" is a rehearsal for "(Venez Donc) Chez Moi." Many issues of this selection use only an excerpt rather than the complete nearly 8 minute take. Pierre Michelot is sometimes listed as bassist on this session but it is believed that this is erroneous. Two takes of "Serenade To Sonny" composed by Anthony Ortega were recorded at this session but Gryce is not present on those.

Soloists:
Track a - Gryce (fades in during solo), Brown, Cleveland, Solomon (fades out during solo)
Track b - Gryce, Brown, Solomon, Gryce, Gourley, Renaud
Track c - Gryce

The pianist is listed as "Harry Jones" but is most likely Hank Jones. This session was produced by Hugo Winterhalter and contracted by Millard Thomas. RCA SPD-24 is a box of 10 EPs. The recording date, location and personnel listed on the Blue Moon CD are incorrect. Part 1 features a baritone saxophone solo (probably NOT Gryce); part 2, a trombone solo (probably Cleveland).

Although Jepsen's discography indicates January 13, 1957 for CO56457 and CO56458, other discographies (Bruyninckx, Lord, Raben) indicate that these tracks were recorded on March 13, 1957. The Columbia matrix numbers actually suggest a date in early July 1956 which seems unlikely since Donald Byrd and Gigi Gryce had not teamed up at that point to form the Jazz Lab ensemble. Thanks to George Avakian, we have now confirmed that these two nonet titles were, in fact, recorded on March 13, 1957 along with the quintet version of "Blue Concept." The matrix numbers CO56457 and CO56458 were originally intended for a Horace Silver recording of July 2, 1956 but were never used for that session and finally assigned out of sequence, at the March 13 Jazz Lab recording.

The Lord and Bruyninckx discographies indicate that the trombonist is Benny Powell but the liner notes to Columbia CL 998 indicate Jimmy Cleveland.

Whitey Mitchell (b) on d; Oscar Pettiford (b) on a-c, e-h.

The saxophone section personnel are unconfirmed as to the presence of Golson or Monterose (but probably not both). The track called "Seventh Heaven" has no relation to "Minor Seventh Heaven" (see session of August 12, 1955 above). Coover Gazdar's Oscar Pettiford discography divides this material between two dates but this is unconfirmed. On "Perdido," the bassist behind Pettiford's cello solo is probably Whitey Mitchell.

While unconfirmed, it is likely that Gryce was present in the studio to direct his arrangements. Some sources indicate that "But Beautiful" was recorded on May 21, 1957 but this seems unlikely.

Thelonious Monk (ldr) on a-c; (p) on a-c.

Producer Orrin Keepnews says: "Note that, since virtually all Riverside sessions were held to produce long-play albums, no master numbers were ever assigned to individual selections." This was a troubled session and Monk was unable to continue after the three attempts at "Crepuscule With Nellie." He does not perform on "Blues For Tomorrow." The session continued the next day with much greater productivity.

The solo order on track d is: Ware, Gryce, Copeland, Coltrane, Hawkins, Ware, Blakey, Copeland/Hawkins/Gryce/Coltrane (4-bar exchanges). Monk is the only soloist on "Crepuscule With Nellie."

Producer Orrin Keepnews says: "Note that, since virtually all Riverside sessions were held to produce long-play albums, no master numbers were ever assigned to individual selections." The alternate take of "Epistrophy" on Riverside 15RCD-022-2 fades out during the beginning of Copeland's solo and is shortened to 1:47. The complete take is found on Riverside RCD2-30027-2. "Abide With Me" is performed only by the horns. Gigi Gryce solos on tracks h and j.

Soloists:
Tracka a-b - Hawkins, Copeland, Monk, Ware, Blakey
Tracks e-f - Monk
Track g - Blakey, Coltrane, Copeland, Gryce, Ware, Monk, Blakey, Hawkins, Monk
Track h - Coltrane, Copeland (fades out during solo)

a, b performed as medley.

Jackie Paris (bj) on a-b.

The liner notes to the original issue, Columbia CL 1058 and reissues thereof incorrectly fail to indicate that Paris is present on "Early Bird." Furthermore, the notes indicate that Jackie Paris appears on "Stablemates" recorded at the September 5th session below. He does not. Paris's contributions are wordless scat vocals. Tracks a and b are performed as a medley and the second part, "Now Don't You Know" is not listed on the album. Nat Hentoff does mention this tune in his liner notes and gives "Lee Sears" as its composer. "Lee Sears" is actually Gryce's wife's maiden name and an alias that he often used when copyrighting his music.

Soloists:

Note that Gryce and Golson arranged each other's compositions. The liner notes to the original issue, Columbia CL 1058 and reissues thereof incorrectly indicate that Jackie Paris appears on "Stablemates." He does not. Also, the liner notes do not indicate the presence of a tuba. A tuba is definitely audible. "Steppin' Out" is very close to "Quick Step," recorded in Paris (see session of October 9, 1953 above).

Photos confirm that Gryce was present in the studio for these sessions. The Rich and Roach quintets were recorded on separate channels. The first track of the session was "Liza (All the Clouds'll Roll Away)" but it was never issued and no tape survives. The original LP issue edits out the bass introduction to "Big Foot." Mercury CD 826 987-2 mislabels master and alternative takes for "Limehouse Blues" and "The Casbah." These are labeled correctly in the Mosaic boxed set. A drum duet, "Figure Eights," was released on the original LP and subsequent reissues. Its matrix no. (JB503-1) indicates it was recorded shortly after this session, probably on 4/10/59 at the end of a Buddy Rich big band session. Therefore, it is not included here. The drummers take turns comping behind soloists, generally backing members of their own band.

This is a Gryce demo LP held at the Rutgers Institute of Jazz Studies. The source of the disc is the estate of Willard Alexander. The recording date is unknown but probably in 1960, prior to both the New Jazz and Mercury sessions.

Both titles on:      Uptown CD: UPCD 27.64 — Doin' the Gigi   (2011)

The exact recording date is unknown. The identities of the bassist and drummer shown are likely but unconfirmed. These tracks were recorded for issue on Gryce's label, Gigi Records, but it appears that never happened; however, the existence of two one-sided demo 45-RPM lacquer discs with these titles is confirmed and these discs are the source for the Uptown CD issue. Track b is not the "Strange Feelin'" recorded on June 7, 1960 for the New Jazz label.
