Classic Earl Hines Sessions 1928-1943

(Out-of-print)

By Alan Goodman

“There are very few long-playing sides which equal the first two in this set for spirit, drive, swing, bristling ensembles and infectious solos. And right up until 1947, Hines inspired terrific esprit de corps in his bands. Willie Cook has told how he and Benny Green were so reluctant to leave that they turned down a better offer from another leader.” – Stanley Dance, review of 2 LP Bluebird release included in the Mosaic set

Earl Hines
The Most Influential Jazz Pianist. Ever
!

Schools need teachers. Traditions require rules. Movements need leaders — someone has to first say, “Follow me. Here’s how it’s done.” There are only a few names in jazz we can count among those teachers. The true originals. One the most important is Earl Hines.

For the first time ever his important work as a leader and soloist spanning 1928 to 1945 are brought together. This unprecedented collection draws from all the important labels that recorded him — OKeh, Victor, Brunswick, Vocalion, Bluebird and Signature. And to our delight, as we combed through the vault at Sony where all these masters now reside, we discovered 11 tracks that have never appeared anywhere.

Not only do the songs reveal how strikingly new his concept was when he first burst on the scene, but how it developed across his solo work, with duos and trios, small combos, and his big band.

Freedom From Rhythm

Hines taught piano players how to break free from that and play what we now call jazz. In the bass notes, the hand could walk and jump, chord, and hold notes longer than expected to play against expected time. With the right hand, he could belt out solos like a wind player (hence, the moniker “trumpet-style” to describe Hines’ sense of melody), often playing in octaves, or weave intricate lines across the keyboard.

On the surface, all that freedom might sound like it has to exist apart from other musicians, but the fact is Hines’ stylistic innovations allowed ensemble work to flourish. Pianists could accompany or lead; embellish a statement, or kick off a new thought. With freedom from strictly composed rhythmic and melodic patterns came the opportunity for dialogue and response in the moment – the essence of spontaneous composition.

Fame Takes Hold

Hines launched his own band in 1928 in Chicago, and stayed in the same club (The Grand Terrace) for 10 years. But he became nationally known, as did many of the stand-out solo musicians he helped introduce. Sarah Vaughan, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker and Hines’ featured vocalist Billy Eckstine all made names for themselves first with Hines. (Sadly, no recordings were made when Parker and Gillespie were beside him).

Our collection features a wealth of Hines solos on ensemble selections, as well as over a dozen piano solo recordings. Included are “Rosetta,” “A Monday Date,” “Melancholy Baby,” and more. From his Chicago orchestra we’re treated to “Cavernism,” “Take It Easy,” “Madhouse,” and “Rhythm Sundae.” There are the hits as well – “Boogie Woogie On St. Louis Blues,” “Jelly, Jelly,” “Stormy Monday Blues,” and the sensational “Skylark.”

A Wealth Of Material, All From Original Sources

The set includes 171 tracks on seven CDs, remastered from the original metal parts and test pressings housed in the Sony archive. Rare photos from the collection of Stanley Dance and an essay by Brian Priestley are featured in our patented Mosaic booklet, along with a discography that corrects time worn errors.

For the influence he had on successive generations of piano players, Hines’ contributions have long been felt. Now, in a way never before possible, they can be directly appreciated.

Earl Hines & His Orchestra
Grand Piano Blues

Shirley Clay, George Mitchell (tp), Billy Franklin (tb, vcl), Toby Turner (cl, as), Cecil Irwin (cl, ts), Lester Boone (cl, as, bari), Earl Hines (p, vcl), Claude Roberts (bjo), Hayes Alvis (tu, vcl, arr), Benny Washington (d, vib), Alex Hill (arr) – October 25, 1929

The February flurry of studio activity for Victor had only one follow-up, doubtless because it was a mere four days before the so-called “Black Tuesday” signalling the Wall Street Crash, an event that put “paid in full” to the recording careers of most black artists except for Armstrong, Bessie Smith and Victor stablemates Jelly Roll Morton and Bennie Moten.

Former Moten sideman Mitchell is heard at his best on Grand Piano Blues, while Clay may take over the lead in the closing chorus. Interestingly, as well as being honored in the title, Hines himself gets longer solos on the two issued tracks from this session. – Brian Priestley

CLASSIC EARL HINES SESSIONS 1928-1945
DISCOGRAPHY

For the purposes of this discography, only the first issue number of each matrix is listed.

To the best of our knowledge, this discography is presented in the order in which each take was recorded. However, the CDs contained in this set are sequenced with the master take first and then any alternates at the conclusion of the disc.

Any sides that have been shown in discographies but are missing from the vaults or possibly in private collections are listed as unissued, master no longer exists. If a second title is shown in brackets, this designates an alternate or more commonly known title yet is not printed on the original label.

The following reference materials used for this discography were The Jazz Discography by Tom Lord (Cadence Jazz Books), Jazz Records 1897-1942 (Fifth Edition) by Brian Rust (Storyville) and The World Of Earl Hines (Charles Scribner’s Sons) by Stanley Dance. Further research was then compiled by Scott Wenzel and Brian Priestley.

Label Abbreviations: BB for Bluebird, Br for Brunswick, Col for Columbia, HMV for His Master’s Voice, JA for Jazz Archives; OK for OKeh, RT for Raretone, RCA Vic for RCA Victor, Sig for Signature, Vic for Victor and Voc for Vocalion.

Country Codes: (E) for England, (F) for France, (G) for Germany and (It) for Italy.

Note: Discographies have shown that two other titles come from this session; I Ain’t Gonna Give Nobody None O’ This Jelly Roll With The Matrix w 402216 and Baby, Won’t You Please Come Home? Carrying The Matrix w 402217. However, the OKeh file cards for matrices w 402215, w 402216, w 402217 and w 402219 are missing and possibly were never allocated. What has been located are cards for matrix w 402221 (shown above) and matrix w 402222 I Ain’t Gonna Give Nobody None O’ This Jelly Roll (also with a Red McKenzie vocal) which comes from a Bud Freeman OKeh session of December 3, 1928.

Some discographies list 57 Varieties as being matrix W 402219.

The Epic LP Hines Rhythm (EE 22021) incorrectly states that the Rosetta used is the -B take (-A is the take used).

Note: The reverse side of Victor 27204 shown above is by Sidney Bechet and his New Orleans Feetwarmers and does not include Hines.

Although it is on the label as Blues For You, Johnny,  Jeffries sings “Blue For You, Johnny”.

The beginning of Stompy Jones is cut due to either a faulty trimming of the outer portion of the master disc or the delay in a mute button being disengaged by the engineer. All commercial releases have this very slight cut.

Note: Water Boy has been noted as an arrangement by Avery Robinson but his was a copyrighted arrangement done for Paul Robeson in 1925 and not for Hines.

Swingin’ On C has been listed in discographies as being an Eddie Durham arrangement. However, it differs from the chart he wrote on this tune for the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra.

Transfers, sound restoration and mastering by Andreas Meyer (www.meyer-media.com)

24 bit technology was utilized at all stages of the production of this Mosaic release.

Special thanks: Michael Brooks, Tad Hershorn, The Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers, Dan Morgenstern, Michael Panico, Vincent Pelote, Brian Priestley, Loren Schoenberg, Tom Tierney.

78s provided by: Michael Brooks, The Institute of Jazz Studies, Steven Lasker and Scott Wenzel.

Design Production: InkWell, Inc.

Vault research: Anthony Fountain and Scott Wenzel

Producer’s Note:

The vision of this set on Earl Hines centers around the sessions under his leadership for labels now owned by Sony Music during the years 1928-1945, the exception being the Sidney Bechet Victor session from September 6, 1940.

The sound quality will differ from track to track due to the use of metal parts, vinyl test pressings, shellac 78s and LPs. However, some specific problems beyond our control include the following: On BVE 50528-1 (Glad Rag Doll) and BS-038258-1 (Grand Terrace Shuffle) a “swish” on the test pressings provided could not be fully eliminated and there are some speed variations at the start of TO-1181 (I Love You Because I Love You).

As noted in other Mosaic boxed sets that contain sources from metal parts, the master take is seldom the first but instead usually the last take recorded. For the majority of these sessions the initial release would be the -A or -1 take, while a -B or -2 take would become the second or alternate choice for release on the originally issued 78. In some of the earlier Victor sessions the master take turned out to be the higher take, so this is not an exact science. Nonetheless we have made every effort to try and approximate the original recording sequence.
