The New DESOR corrections
We remind you that these corrections are merely
suggestions. They are not (yet) accepted by the authors of the New
DESOR. Unsigned suggestions were brought in by Hoefsmit.
Page 1. Session 2402, Nov24. On Deacon Jazz and on Oh, How I Love My Darling, Otto Hardwick does not play alto saxophone but C-melody saxophone. These are the only two recordings on which he played that instrument.
This would also ask for corrections on pages VIII, 825, 1055 and 1467.
Page 1. Session 2402, Nov24. 2402d, Oh, How I Love My Darling. Delete the 'd.,' in 'SG(d.,vc.). It should read 'SG(vc.)'. Sonny Greer did not play the drums in this recording.
Pages 65 and 975. The spelling is wrong. It should read: Just as Though You Were Here and not as Just as Thought You Were Here. The final "t" of Thought should be deleted.
Page 221. The subtitle for Bassment, the opening selection of the Stratford concert of 18Jul56 (5618a), was Hark, the Duke's Trumpets. This should be added between parentheses. The title should be corrected from Hark For Duke's Trumpets into Hark, the Duke's Trumpets on pages XXXV and 744.**
Page 412. Session 6566, 31Dec65. See Klaus Stratemann p526, where it is said that Louie Bellson was not the drummer on that date. There was a drummer present, but his name is still unknown.
Page 413. Session 6603, 23Jan66. According to Ken Vail p279, the drummer was Skeets Marsh. This makes sense. Klaus Stratemann stated on p528 that Louie Bellson was called back for the soundtrack recordings for the picture "Assault on a Queen". Ken Vail wrote: "Immediately after the show [23Jan66], Ellington and the band fly to Lisbon ." We know that Louie did not go with the band to Europe and was replaced by Skeets Marsh.
Page 455. Session 6703, 14Jan67. Swamp Goo, 6703cv plus Johnny Come Lately, 6703cw sound like Action in Alexandria.
Page 459. Sessions 6712 and 6713, 25Jan67. The correct spelling is Njårdhallen.
Page 460. Session 6714. Duke is thanking the speaker, Dr Fred Lange Nilsen.
Page 571. Session 7034, 27Apr70. Delete after DE7034x and before DE7034y: WBD(o.) out. Wild Bill Davis is very well present on the recording of Rext as can be heard in the Danish Broadcast #9, even in such an extend that he should have been credited in the description of the recording on page 1087.
Page 1406. Item 0642. Add to note: Track A04: chorus 1°; pass (6 bars); chorus 2° and pass (2 bars) after chorus 2° omitted.
Track B04: last bar of pass after chorus 5°; last two bars of pass after chorus 8°; chorus 9°; chorus 10° and coda omitted. (05/1-10)
Correction-sheet 1067. The two additional titles have numbers 7132ax and bx. It should have been 7132xa and xb. The same correction should be made on Correction-sheet 5009 p611.

See for older Correctionsheets: DEMS 04/133, DEMS 04/2-52 and DEMS 04/3-52
A confusing error was made in the third sentence of DEMS 04/3-30 concerning the Columbia/Legacy CD COL 512915 2.
Take -1 of Blues in Orbit of 4Feb58 is not on track 7 but on track 10 of the CD in question.
The last correction on the list of 04/3-51 should read:
Correction-sheet 3018 item 0871. See the small corrections at the end of the list in 04/2-51. On the case of the Quantum Leap DVD is written: QLDVD, but the correct number on the disk is indeed QLDUK 0253. The correction in 04/2-51 can be deleted.
I noticed an error at 04/3-41 and already made the correction online. The College of William and Mary is in Virginia, not in the state of Maryland.
