Re: [RedHotJazz] 1923 Morris Past Jazz Masters (was Re: Frogspawn vol. 1)
- You are asking for a proper CD reissue - Classic Records 823 (France) has a CD that has all Thomas Morris recordings in chronological order from 1923-1926, but no alternate recordings. However, there are no linear notes at all; no personnel listed; only the dates.
I note that RHJA has alternate takes available on the 1926 recordings, but almost all the 1923 recordings are missing.

I have been listening to the 1923 sides to quite some detail in the last week or two - excellent jazz, some of the best in NYC at that point in time (and really some of the best jazz ever). There is a need for a proper CD reissue of this material - the best so far is still the FOUNTAIN LP FJ-113. By the way the first session on the LP liner notes and personnel note the brass bass and drums.
