Great clip. Among those who sound familiar, meaning as we think of them, my vote actually goes to Diz on that day, or performance moment anyway--and that other kid is definitely miles off. But Tristano surprises me, playing even in his solo like a finely talented pianist integrating his style into the group sound, rather than dominating it with his own theories and often avant garde approach. Thanks for the genial reminder of the grand old days when Parker, De Franco, Rugulo, and Metronome could all be mentioned in the same hip sentence.

"Just two takes of Overtime were recorded and three takes of Victory Ball. Multiple takes were needed for shorter versions meant for 78-rpm release while the longer ones were for radio airplay."

Hmmmmmm....I seem to remember 12 RCA 78 rpm issues of the 2 titles and they had green labels. I could be wrong.

And I think the 10 inch versions were intended for juke boxes as well as the public, with the 12 inch versions for people who really cared.

I don't think RCA was too caring of what one-off Bop sessions were going to do via radio play.

Anyone?

Buddy's perception of Ernie Caceres as "not much of a jazzer" may be based on Ernie's roll in the big bands that the two of them played in. On four trio sides recorded in 1937 he plays some decent "hot" clarinet as well as baritone. The real star of those sessions, however, is his older brother Emilio, who was a very exciting and original swing violinist. These recordings have been periodically reissued on anthologies of early jazz violin. Emilio spent most of his career in latin dance bands. The brothers made one other jazz recording in 1969 but it quickly vanished.
