OK, y'all:

The LPs page is now updated with most of these images...

Have we ever determined if the Nobility/Shalom/Dulai issues have the same codes? If so, I'd like to just add that to the pop-up note - like 'also released as Nobility 711' etc.

Other than that, I'd say we're close enough...

THANKS!

OK, Thanks Serge - 704 was the last Nobility LP without a usable scan, now we're all set!!

It's been interesting this influx of Traditional Jazz recordings, all of which list Cosimo as the engineer. Although I'm sure some of them were indeed 'field' recordings, this note on the back of the 'Frog and Friends' LP is rather interesting:

Quote:
"...As with the three prior mintings, this disc was recorded deep in the French Quarter itself at Cosimo Matassa's Recording Studio."


Which kind of puts the whole 'At Dixieland Hall' thing in question... were any of them actually recorded on site?

As the note states, Dixieland Hall was located at 522 Bourbon Street:

Now home to some place called Rick's Sporting Saloon... it was only a few blocks from Cosimo Recording on Governor Nicholls. The proprietor, A. Grayson Clark, was also the owner of the Nobility Label, and apparently 'the Man' when it came to 'Dixieland' Jazz in the 1960s in New Orleans. 'Dixieland' was apparently changed to 'Heritage' circa 1966 in direct competition with the better known 'Preservation' Hall for the tourist dollar.

The important thing for us to realize, I think, is that these traditional musicians were cutting at Cosimo's in the 1960s right alongside guys like Smokey Johnson, Hungry Williams, Red Tyler, George Davis, Allen Toussaint, Earl King, Wardell Quezergue etc. etc. - and had to be a major (indeed primary) influence on the evolution of New Orleans R&B, an influence that is quite unique, and couldn't have happened anywhere else...

I wouldn't mind adding a few audio links of some of this Nobility/Shalom/Dulai material on the page, but have yet to locate any on YouTube (actually i haven't had time to even look yet) - but I think that would be a nice touch...

Thanks again one and all!

Hi, this venue (522 Bourbon) opened in February 1962. Photo © by James Stuber (1968). Click to enlarge the photo. PS. I went there many times in the fall of 1966.

Nobility LPs 708 & 709: Paul Barbarin And The Onward Brass Band, were also reissued as "NEW ORLEANS FUNERAL PALADE [sic]: THE ONWARD BRASS BAND", "DAN" VC-2009, Japan (1982).
P.O.
