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 labeled as "Ad Lib" and two untitled piano solos performed by Gryce. None of these have been auditioned by the authors.

Solos:
a/b - Jordan, Wilber, trumpet (?), Gryce, Pettiford (cello), Jordan, Roland
c - Roland
d - Pettiford (cello - audio problems), Jordan (?), bass (probably Pettiford - drop out during solo), Gryce (track ends during his solo)

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."

Clifford Brown discographer Bob Weir incorrectly lists the studio as Van Gelder. Doug Hawkins is listed as the engineer and he is known to have worked at WOR.


On June 22, 1953, trombonist J.J. Johnson recorded two takes of Gryce's composition "Capri" for Blue Note Records (Jay Jay Johnson, BLP 5028; The Eminent Jay Jay Johnson, Vols. 1 & 2, BLP 1505, 1506). The ensemble was a sextet with Clifford Brown (t), Jimmy Heath (ts, bar), John Lewis (p), Percy Heath (b) and Kenny Clarke (d). It is possible Gryce was present in the studio to direct the recording of his tune but there is no suggestion of this in the original LP liner notes or other sources.

"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.

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).

Liner notes indicate that Thompson is the tenor saxophone soloist on track a but it sounds much more like Jerome Richardson to this discographer.


On June 25, 1956, trombonist Jimmy Cleveland recorded Gryce's composition "Wolf Talk" with a quintet made up of Hank Jones (p), Barry Galbraith (g), Milt Hinton (b) and Osie Johnson (d) (Various Artists, Rhythm Plus One, Epic LN 3297). It is possible Gryce was present in the studio to direct the recording of his tune but the there is no documentation of this.

In late 1956 and early 1957, Art Blakey recorded several of Gryce's compositions with a quintet made up of Bill Hardman (t), Jackie McLean (as), Sam Dockery (p) and Spanky DeBrest (b) as follows:
December 13, 1956, "Nica's Tempo," Drum Suite, CL 1002
February 11, 1957, "Exhibit A," Art Blakey with the Jazz Messengers & Elmo Hope Quintet, Pacific Jazz PJ33
February 11, 1957, "Wake Up," Ritual, Pacific Jazz PJ15
March 8-9, 1957, "Casino," A Midnight Session, Elektra EKL120
April 1957, "Transfiguration" & "Exhibit A," Tough!, Cadet LP4049

It is possible Gryce was present in the studio to direct the recordings of his tunes, but the there is no suggestion of this in the original LP liner notes or other sources.

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."


On March 12, 1957, tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins recorded Gryce's composition "Blue Lights" with a septet including Idrees Sulieman (t), J.J. Johnson (tb), Hank Jones (p), Barry Galbraith (g), Oscar Pettiford (b) and Jo Jones (d) (Coleman Hawkins, The Hawk Flies High, Riverside RLP 12-233). It is possible Gryce was present in the studio to direct the recording of his tune but the there is no documentation of this.

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.

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.

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.

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.

a, b performed as medley.

Jackie Paris (bj) on a-b.

Solos:
a - Wynton Kelly (p) 8-bar intro in 3/4; Jackie Paris (v) 128 bars (2 choruses in 3/4) wordless vocal
b - Arthur Taylor (d) 8 bars keeping time with brushes; Jackie Paris (v) 8 bar intro wordless vocal; Jackie Paris (v) 24 bars (2 choruses) wordless vocal
c - Gigi Gryce (as) 6 bars of first chorus head; Donald Byrd (t) 6 bars of second chorus head; Gigi Gryce (as) 60 bars (5 choruses); Wynton Kelly (p) 48 bars (4 choruses); Jackie Paris (v) 48 bars (4 choruses) scat vocal; Donald Byrd (t) 48 bars (4 choruses); Wendell Marshall (b) 12 bars (1 chorus); Donald Byrd (t) 6 bars of head; Gigi Gryce (as) 6 bars of last head
d - Wynton Kelly (p) 8-bar intro; Gigi Gryce (as) 8 bars bridge; Donald Byrd (t) 64 bars (2 choruses); Gigi Gryce (as) 64 bars (2 choruses); Jackie Paris (v) 64 bars (2 choruses) scat vocal; Wynton Kelly (p) 64 bars (2 choruses); Gigi Gryce (as) 32 bars (1 chorus) 4-bar exchanges with Taylor alternating with Byrd; Donald Byrd (t) 8 bars final bridge

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.

b - Donald Byrd (t) 64 bars (2 choruses); Gigi Gryce (as) 64 bars (2 choruses); Wynton Kelly (p) 64 bars (2 choruses)

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).

On some LP issues, track g is listed as "Smoke Signals." A woodblock is heard on track e, simulating the ticking of a clock.

We had always assumed that Gryce was the arranger of track b, but recently (March 2016) discovered that Golson is, in fact, the arranger of that title. Many thanks are due Rob DuBoff of eJazzLines who provided a scan of the cover page of the arrangement clearly indicating that Golson is the arranger.
