The liner notes to Night Train 7021 place track a in another session in 1949, on which Art Farmer was not present. The Lord discography indicates it is part of this session. Swing Time 148 definitely contains a version of “Black Train Blues” but I can’t confirm it’s the same one as on the Night Train CD.

The ensemble is basically Jay McShann’s band at the time with Pete Johnson on piano. Why the matrix numbers have gaps is unknown. The Lord discography indicates that track a (but not track i) was recorded at a separate session. The recording date shown is found in the Lord discography and the liner notes to Classics CD 1094 but Arhoolie CD 333 indicates only 1948/1949. The master take of “B & O Blues” is apparently the shorter (faster tempo) version although Down Beat/Swing Time 152 has not been auditioned to confirm this. The liner notes to Arhoolie F 1012, which includes the shorter version, state: “An alternate master of B & O Blues can be heard on the album R 2004: Jumpin’ the Blues by Joe Turner and Pete Johnson.” The version on Arhoolie R 2004 and CD 333 is the longer one.


The recordings of the legendary Roy Porter big band following are problematic because of a lack of definitive documentation regarding dates, personnel and soloists. They have received attention because they contain early examples of Eric Dolphy solos on alto sax. What is shown are best guesses based on several sources:
Roy Porter with David Keller, “There and Back,” Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge, 1991, pp. 73-87 and discography
Vladimir Simosko and Barry Tepperman, “Eric Dolphy: A Musical Biography and Discography,” DaCapo Press, 1996 (revised ed.)
Robert Gordon, “Jazz West Coast: The Los Angeles Jazz Scene of the 1950s,” Quartet Books, 1987
Ted Gioia, “West Coast Jazz: Modern Jazz in California 1945-1960,” Oxford University Press, New York, 1992, pp. 140-141
Michel Ruppli and Bob Porter, “The Savoy Label: A Discography,” Greenwood Press, 1980
Online Bob Gordon Discography
Alan Saul’s website

Roy Porter’s states in “There and Back” that Art Farmer played first trumpet in the band. Arrangements were by Robert Ross, Joe Howard and Jimmy Knepper but specific assignments are not revealed.

Solos:
a - Roy Porter (d); Art Farmer (t); Hadley Caliman (ts)

The personnel and date are uncertain. Track b is called “Everything’s Cool.” Track c has not been auditioned.


James Accardi’s Wardell Gray Discography and Lord list 2 tracks thought to be from a “Just Jazz” concert in April 1949, in Hollywood, one entitled “Bop” and never issued and “Scratch” (really “Donna Lee”), issued on Modern LMP-1208 and Crown CLP-5008, both titled Jazz Surprise: The Modern Jazz Stars with uninformative liner notes. The trumpet player on this concert has been suggested to be either Art Farmer or Howard McGhee, but no trumpet solo is heard on the incomplete (3:17) version of “Donna Lee,” the track ending after alto and tenor saxophone solos (presumably Art Pepper and Teddy Edwards, respectively). “Bop” has not been auditioned so Farmer’s presence remains highly speculative.

a. Wahoo - 13:10(Bennie Harris)
b. inc The Great Lie - 6:50(Cab Calloway, Andy Gibson)
Both titles on: Spotlite (Eng.) LP 12"SPJ 145 — Jazz Off the Air, Vol. 2   (1979)
Solos:
a - Hampton Hawes (p) intro; Teddy Edwards (ts) 1st chorus bridge; Teddy Edwards (ts); Art Farmer (t); Art Pepper (as); Bob Cooper (ts); Hampton Hawes (p); Art Farmer (t) 4-bar exchanges among the four horns; Chuck Thompson (d) last chorus bridge
b - Art Pepper (as); Bob Cooper (ts); Art Farmer (t); Teddy Edwards (ts) solo deleted because announcer talks over it; Hampton Hawes (p) to fadeout

The ensemble is called “The Kenton All Stars” even though the only Kenton sidemen are Cooper and Pepper. Track a is listed as “Perdido” (Juan Tizol) but what the ensemble actually plays is the contrafact on that standard called “Wahoo.” This was an Armed Forces Radio Service broadcast. Teddy Edwards’ solo on track b was deleted because it was inaudible.

Solos:

According to the Bob Gordon Discography, Gordon is the baritone saxophonist and not Ortega. That source also indicates this session took place in Spring of 1949. The information shown comes from Roy Porter’s autobiography, “There and Back.” It is uncertain whether tracks a and b were ever issued. All of the Knockout masters were destroyed in a fire, according to Porter. This session took place after a serious automobile accident that took place when the band was traveling through New Mexico injuring Porter, Farmer and Clyde Dunn, all of whom required hospitalization and extended recovery.


James Accardi’s Wardell Gray Discography suggests that Art Farmer is present on 4 Count Basie tracks issued on Saga Jazz CD 53, Count Basie Septet & Octet: On Film and Live (2003), possibly recorded November-December 1950 in New York City (radio broadcast). The titles are listed as “3:15 AM Blues,” “Donna Lee,” “C Jam Blues” and “Robbins’ Nest.” The other personnel listed are Marshall Royal (cl), Wardell Gray (ts), Count Basie (p), Freddie Green (g), possibly Jimmy Lewis (b), possibly Gus Johnson (d). Accardi credits Malcolm Walker for suggesting Farmer and also notes that Coover Gazdar, owner of the tapes that were issued on the CD, has suggested Thad Jones substituting for Clark Terry on the night these performances were broadcast. After auditioning these tracks, I doubt the trumpet player is Farmer but can’t definitively rule out that possibility. But there are no confirmed connections between Basie and Farmer at this time (or later) and Farmer would not record with Gray until 1952.

Information comes from the CD liner notes. The Lord discography indicates the recording date was July 1953. The 78 is mentioned in the August 1, 1953 issue of Billboard Magazine. The Ruppli Mercury discography gives no personnel other than Ray Johnson and no specific recording date.


The liner notes to Mercury 314 528 292-2 (Mercury Blues ’N’ Rhythm Story 1945-1955) and the Lord discography indicate that Art Farmer is present on two tracks recorded ca. 1953 by vocalist Pat Valdelar. The accompanying ensemble is listed as the same as for the sessions of Ray Johnson and Woo Woo Moore. The titles are “Keep Your Hand on Your Heart” (mtx. 7477) and “Rock Me Baby” (mtx. 7478), both issued on Mercury 70201; however, no trumpet is audible on either of these tracks, the accompanying ensemble comprising tenor sax, guitar, piano, bass and drums. The Ruppli Mercury discography provides no personnel for this session.

Vogue CD 88116-2 has 2 takes of “Strike up the Band” but it is unknown whether the alternate included is take 2 or take 3. Actually, the CD indicates the alternate take is performed by a quartet with the only horn being Farmer, but this is clearly wrong. It’s an alternate, shorter septet version. This CD also indicates that the bassist is Alphonse Masselier and not Pierre Michelot.

The date is definitely earlier than November 24, 25 or 26, 1953 which is as listed in Weir's Clifford Brown discography. The Hampton band departed from Paris on November 24, 1953 for New York (via London and Glasgow). Unknown French musicians from Algiers also participated in this session. This tape is lost and the report is based on an anecdotal report from an eyewitness.

The first 4 tracks on CD1 of the Solar Records compilation are titled incorrectly. The actual order is: 1. “Autumn Nocturne” (from the session of November 9, 1954 below); 2. “Confab in Tempo”; 3. “I’ll Take Romance”; 4. “Wisteria”. Therefore, as noted in Lord’s The Jazz Discography, “Soft Shoe” is not present in the Solar compilation.

Track c is based on the chord changes of “Get Happy.”

Track a is an “I Got Rhythm” contrafact. Track b is a blues in F. Track b was presumably edited to fit on both sides of a single 45. Although Gene Ammons has been credited as composer of “Woofin’ and Tweetin’, the legal composer of this tune is Art Farmer according to U.S. Copyright Office and BMI records.

This performance was a Voice of America radio broadcast which has, apparently, never been issued. It was part of a panel discussion Jazz from the Inside Out on Sunday afternoon of the 1955 Newport Jazz Festival. Tapes of this event are stored at the Library of Congress. The Library of Congress documentation indicates a title "Sounds of April" which is most likely a misidentification of Teo Macero's composition "Sounds of May." An online Charles Mingus discography lists "Non-sectarian" as one of the tracks performed but this title is not among those given in the Library of Congress documentation. Track d is a Mingus/LaPorta duet. I have not auditioned these performances.

“T.C.’s Groove” is dedicated to vibraphonist Teddy Charles. On "Sounds Of May,” Ernest Anderson overdubbed 8 vocal parts and Macero overdubbed one alto saxophone part. Tape speed manipulation was also utilized.

This is very unusual and experimental music with a lot of what sounds like simultaneous, free improvisation. It is also very difficult to discern what is written and what is improvised. Thus solo information is only provided for tracks d and e where the soloists are more easily identified.

RLR CD 88623 (Thelonious Monk in Philadelphia 1960 with Steve Lacy) includes two tracks from the Steve Allen TV show, Oct. 6, 1955, with a band claimed to be made up of Art Farmer (t), unknown (tb), Hank Mobley (ts), Thelonious Monk (p), Charles Mingus (b) and Art Blakey (d). “Off Minor” is preceded by Allen attempting to interview Monk, The other title is Monk’s “Well, You Needn’t.” The personnel are not announced and no information regarding the background or provenance of these recordings is provided. The sound quality is abysmal and after auditioning these tracks, I am unable to convince myself that Farmer is present. If corroboration of his participation comes to light, this session will be added to the discography.

Dawn/Fresh Sound (Sp.) CDDCD 111 — The Gentle Art of Love   (1998)

These septet tracks are the only ones of the original album on which Art Farmer appears. The other 9 tracks are performed by a sextet and octet and neither ensemble includes a trumpet. The information shown is speculative and unconfirmed and is taken mainly from the Lord discography which gives no source. No personnel are listed on the LPs. The entire album has little jazz content, basically no improvised solos and seems designed as “easy listening” or “mood music” of the time.

The Lord discography gives November 1956 as the recording date.. The Ruppli/Daniels King Labels discography indicates only 1958-59 which is impossible since the LP Bethlehem BCP 79 was issued in 1957.

Regarding the date of recording, Anthony Barnett provides the following (email October 24, 2017): “According to the four phone interviews I did 1997–1998 with Dick Wetmore published in Fable Bulletin: Violin Improvisation Studies, vol 3, issue no. 10, 1998, Bob Zieff believed that the session Wetmore did with Ortega incl. Farmer would have been early 1957. Bob remembered it as early [in the year]. We do know for certain that Dick was in his home town, Boston on 7 November 1956 (when he recorded there with Dave Coleman). 1957 is really the year of Dick’s New York recording activities.”

The LP lists the bass clarinetist as “John Hafer.” This is undoubtedly Dick Hafer who played tenor saxophone extensively with the Woody Herman band and was born John Richard Hafer. Around the time of this recording, Ortega and Dick Hafer had recorded together for Herbie Mann, Larry Sonn and Nat Pierce.

The track timings shown on the jacket of Fresh Sound FSR 2006 are incorrect.

These 3 tracks were never issued on the original LP, Prestige 7063 and apparently destined for an LP that was never completed. The personnel have generated much controversy. Here is an historical summary:
1. Donald Byrd (t), Phil Woods (as), Gil Melle (bar), Joe Cinderella (g), Vinnie Burke (b), Ed Thigpen (d)
This lineup appears first in:
(a) Jepsen's Jazz Records 1942-1962 (1963) and repeated in:
(b) Ruppli's Prestige Records Discography, 1972 and 1980 editions;
(c) Bruyninckx Discography, 1977 and 1987 editions;
(d) Liner notes to Prestige OJCCD-1753-2 (1990).
2. The Lord Discography (1996 print edition) shows: Art Farmer (t), Hal McKusick (as), poss. Seldon Powell (ts), Gil Melle (bar), Teddy Charles (vib), poss. George Duvivier (b), poss. Shadow Wilson (d).
3. Personnel provided by Gil Melle in a 1999 interview with Rudy Van Gelder historian Dan Skea: Art Farmer (t), Hal McKusick (as), Zoot Sims (ts), Gil Melle (bar), Teddy Charles (vib), Joe Cinderella (g), Vinnie Burke (b), Ed Thigpen (d). Melle was particularly emphatic about the presence of Sims and Charles and frustrated by their omission from the Original Jazz Classics CD liner notes.
4. Personnel in the Bruyninckx Discography, 2004 pdf edition - same as 2.
5. Personnel shown on Fresh Sound FSR-CD 479_2 (2008) and in the Lord Discography, current online version (2009): Art Farmer (t), Hal McKusick (as), Seldon Powell (ts), Gil Melle (bar), Teddy Charles (vib), George Duvivier (b), Shadow Wilson (d).

After being troubled by this session for years, I recently (August 2009) have revisited it in an attempt to definitively identify the participants. Unfortunately, that goal remains elusive. Nonetheless, here are some of my conclusions:
1. The early information, repeated on the 1990 CD reissue, is wrong. A vibraphone and tenor sax are clearly audible and the trumpeter and alto saxophonist are definitely NOT Byrd and Woods, respectively.
2. No guitar is audible on any of the tracks.
3. The musicians present beyond any doubt (aural evidence) are Farmer, McKusick, Melle and Charles.
4. Despite what Melle indicated in the 1999 interview, the tenor saxophonist is NOT Zoot Sims based on aural evidence (confirmed in a phone conversation and email exchange with Hal McKusick). It could very well be Seldon Powell but to me, that remains insufficiently substantiated and so I am listing the tenor sax player as unknown until I find compelling evidence for Powell or anyone else.
5. The bassist and drummer sound to me much more like Burke and Thigpen than Duvivier and Wilson, respectively. Hal McKusick's recollections of the session lean in the same direction.

a. Sound Fragments
unissued

This session has recently (June 1, 2009) surfaced on the Internet. It involves the French composer Edgard Varèse directing a group of New York City "workshop musicians" in performing a variety of "sounds." Teo Macero was one of the organizers. Apparently, parts of this session were used in Varèse's Poème Électronique. But these fragments seem to have little to do with jazz and although some have suggested this is one of the first "free jazz" sessions, that doesn't seem accurate since Varèse was instructing the musicians as to what to play on their given instruments. (Teddy Charles remembered nothing being written out.) The original tape of this workshop is stored at The Paul Sacher Foundation. Nineteen low quality mp3 files of this workshop are available at WFMU's Beware of the Blog.

Some CD issues give the date as November 10, 1957. The Cuscuna/Ruppli Blue Note Discography (2nd edition) gives the date shown.

U.S. CD note: “The mono take of ‘Bootin' It’ is edited with an insert from the exchanges with the drums through the ending melody. No matching insert could be found on the stereo reels. So we have included the original mono take as issued and the stereo take 5 as it happened.”

The LP label incorrectly credits “Long Ago And Far Away” to Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger.

"Jimmie's Tune" was composed for Cleveland's son and Doug Leibinger reports that this is not the same composition as "Jimmy's Tune" recorded on June 25, 1956.

More information needed.


Both the Bruyninckx and Lord discographies suggest that Art Farmer is part of the orchestra heard on Michel Legrand”s Columbia LP CL 1139 (Legrand in Rio), apparently recorded in late 1957 or early 1958. The LP provides no personnel or date information. The ensemble heard is a large orchestra with brass, woodwinds, strings, guitar, vibraphone, keyboards, bass, drums, percussion and choir. Along with Farmer, Miles Davis, Ernie Royal, Joe Wilder, Donald Byrd, Phil Woods, Eddie Costa and John Coltrane have been suggested as participants. This is not a jazz album, being commercially oriented with the material a mixture of Latin standards. There are some improvised solos heard including several on trumpet, but nothing that convinces me Farmer is present.

Excellent research on this album has been reported by Fernando Ortiz de Urbina in his blog. From the evidence and reasoning presented there, it seems highly unlikely that any American musicians participated in the recording sessions that comprise Legrand in Rio. (Based on information from the French Philips label, these took place January 31-March 7, 1958 in Paris.)
