DISCOGRAPHY
THE COMPLETE JIMMIE LUNCEFORD DECCA SESSIONS

For the purposes of this discography, only the initial release of each matrix is listed with the exception of the 16” World Transcription sessions (which Universal Music claims ownership of) that were recorded for radio air play use only. For these WT tracks both the initial transcription catalog number is shown in addition to any commercially released 78, LP or CD. All titles in this discography were released initially on 78 unless where noted and all are credited on the label as Jimmie Lunceford and his Orchestra. Non-U.S. releases are abbreviated (C) for Canada; (E) for England; (F) for France and (Sw) for Switzerland.

All New York sessions were recorded at the Decca Studios, 799 Seventh Avenue until sometime in 1936 when Decca moved to 50 West 57th Street. Sessions made in Los Angeles were recorded at 5505 Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. The World Transcription sessions were recorded at the World Broadcasting System, 711 Fifth Avenue in New York.

To the best of our knowledge, the discography is in the order in which the tunes were
recorded. However, the CDs contained in this boxed set are presented with the master take
first and then any alternates at the end of the disc. Any alternate takes that have been noted
in discographies but are no longer in the vaults or possibly in private collections that are
unknown to the producer, have been listed as unissued, master no longer exists.

Record label abbreviations are as follows: Br for Brunswick; Cir for Circle; Cl for Classics,
Con for Conifer; Cor for Coral; Dec for Decca; FTR for First Time Records; MOJ for Masters
of Jazz and WT for World Transcriptions.

Note: Some discographies list matrix L-3064 as being a rejected take of Easy Street while other discographies list this matrix as This Is My Confession and being released on the Jazz After Hours CD 200025, which used the master take found in session (JJ).

Many discographies list Benny Waters as playing only alto with the Lunceford band. However, according to Lunceford historian Arthur Farrar, Waters “…kept looking over at Joe Thomas' parts (they sat adjacent) and doubling them and - according to both Willie Smith and Trummy Young (in my personal interviews) - Lunceford allowed the changeover because the extremely demanding unison sax passages on many of the arrangements could only be seamlessly accomplished by Benny on his tenor, without otherwise having to slow down the tempos or allow for a several weeks' ramping-up period. I have seen several photographs of this '42 edition of the band and in every one of them Benny is on tenor”. To complicate matters, Waters himself claimed he initially played alto, clarinet and tenor and used as a “utility man” when he replaced Ted Buckner.

Producer’s Note:
This set brings together all the Decca studio sessions by Jimmie Lunceford and his Orchestra as well as most of the radio transcriptions made for the World Broadcasting System (A Lover’s Lullaby, from Session II has eluded us and therefore is not included here). The discs used for this release came from commercially released 78s and vinyl test pressings as a majority of the original Decca metal parts no longer exist in the Universal Music vaults. The 78s that were transferred were not only from American Decca pressings but also British and German Brunswick as well as Australian and British Decca pressings that were made available to us from the collections of the Institute of Jazz Studies and Leon Dierckx. As for the vinyl test pressings, we had the good fortune of having access (through engineer Ted Kendall) to the collection of the late John R.T. Davies. We are also indebted to Steven Lasker who provided us with the unissued -C of Pigeon Walk.

Because of the various sources used to transfer, the audio quality will vary from track to track (an identification of these sources can be found at the end of this discography). For example, many of the sides that came from test pressings, tend to be more bass heavy. Another situation arose on many sources (especially the pre-1941 ones) where there is distortion with loud passages. These have been reduced or removed without interfering with the music as best as possible but many of these “hot” passages refused to be softened. Individual situations that should be noted here are portions of Babs, matrix 39996 found in session (H), which sounds off-center and could not be corrected since the problem occurred with the master cutter. In Session (R) matrix 61552-B (Honest And Truly) can only be found on the Decca LP 79239 in simulated stereo.

The discography is a product of several reference materials: Rhythm Is Our Business by
Eddie Determeyer (University of Michigan Press, 2006), The Jimmie Lunceford Legacy
On Records by Bertil Lyttkens (self published, 1996), Jazz Records 1897-1942 Fifth Edition
by Brian Rust (Storyville), The Decca Labels by Michel Ruppli (Greenwood Press, 1996)
and The Jazz Discography by Tom Lord (Cadence Jazz Books). Musician’s names were
confirmed by the Local 802 (NY) musician’s union book directories and further research was
made available from the original Lunceford Orchestra charts housed at the Smithsonian Institution and interviews conducted for the Jazz Oral History Project. Research was also compiled by Steven Lasker who had access to the Decca session ledger books.
