Hi, Matassa waxed five New Orleans jazz sessions in July 1962 at his 521 Gov. Nichols Studio. Three LPs were released as JAZZ AT THE PRESERVATION HALL (sic), by "Atlantic" records. I'll be happy to supply scans of all of them. Please get in touch. Cheers ;)

Thank You Fessologist!!

I suppose the fact that these LPs were released on Atlantic means they have Atlantic matrix numbers, not Cosimo Codes...

Although I don't see the albums listed at the BSN Atlantic discography:

http://www.bsnpubs.com/atlantic/atlantic80008197.html

In any event, it would certainly be interesting to check them out!

Welcome Aboard!

Hi, sorry I forgot this JAZZ AT PRES. HALL LP. More later. I got lots of NOLA R&B 45s. Will check all of them. Cheers and Keep On: Per Oldaeus.

Cool, Fess -

I was able to find them in the BSN 1200 JAZZ SERIES DISCOGRAPHY:

http://www.bsnpubs.com/atlantic/atlantic12001463.html

Have you checked the dead wax for any codes?

Thanks Again!

...I never doubted you for a minute!!

Interesting that the personnel is virtually the same as on the 1963 Nobility 'Heritage Hall' series we recently added to the LPs page... after Nesuhi Ertegun pulled out, ol' W. Grayson Clark (and Cosimo) picked right up where they left off.

As I said in a post about the Nobility Lps:

http://cosimocode.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1100&start=40

Quote:
"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..."


Yeah, You Rite!

Thanks, fess-o!

Yes, the rhythmical roots of the NOLA R&B is the parade beat thing: the Brass Bands, plus Gospel and Mardi Gras music etc. Frog Joseph, the trombonist on the Barbarin JAZZ AT PRES. tracks also plays on the Fess/Earl King: Big Chief session, plus the Earl King "Trick Back" session etc. Paul Barbarin's younger brother Louis gave drum lessons to Earl Palmer. Check my book about Fess.
More later: cheers Per Oldaeus.
