Roscoe Mitchell Discography (Preliminary)

Following is a discography for Roscoe Mitchell, listing only album titles, artist, label and date. Usually recording date, but perhaps not always - please don't consider this a definitive source for dates! Roscoe Mitchell is a giant figure in the history of this planet, so someone will certainly have to do this right, and very soon, and when they do I hope they'll let me know! Meanwhile, please send me email to alert me to any omissions or blunders.

Most of the information below comes from Roscoe Mitchell's press kit; I've added a couple entries from Sandeep Mehta's Art Ensemble of Chicago Discography, and from AACM website's Art Ensemble of Chicago discography.

Soon I hope to incorporate details from Jack Lefton's Art Ensemble of Chicago discography - as of 2003, Jack's is still being updated, and seems the best place to get track listings, dates, places, etc., for the Art Ensemble recordings I've only listed by title.

Thanks also to: George Scala, Marcel-Franck Simon, Steve Smith, Steve Berman, Gerald Cleaver, Joaquin Villaverde Martinez, Stu Kremsky, George Curran, Brian Olewnick Jack Lefton, Mark Bradford, Jose Ignacio Pena Chocarro, William T. Koltek, G. Zampriolo, Josef "Pepsch" Muska, Greg Campbell, the George Lewis discography (UC San Diego), Francesco Martinelli, and Al Margolis and Tom Buckner of Mutable Music for more titles and information.

Stu Kremsky references the AECO Discography, by Eddy Janssens and Hugo DeCraen published in an edition of 400 copies in July 1983 by New Think Publications, Brussels. I have not seen this document.

The entries in this discography are numbered automatically; thus when I add an earlier entry, it bumps up the numbers for the later ones - so please don't identify a recording by its number herein!

  1. Nick Gravenites: "Whole Lotta Soul"/"Drunken Boat", (Out of Sight Records, 1965, Chicago) Greg Campbell writes: "Nick Gravenites, vocal and guitar - Mike Bloomfield, guitar - Elvin Bishop, guitar - Paul Butterfield, harmonica - Erwin Helfer, harpsichord - Scotty Holt, bass - Steve McCall, drums - Lester Bowie, trumpet - Julian Priester, trombone - Roscoe Mitchell, alto sax. 1. "Whole Lotta Soul" 2. "Drunken Boat." Nick Gravenites: We got two bizarre-sounding songs, had a thousand copies made; five hundred got lost in a warehouse somewhere, we gave away four hundred and sold a hundred. I gave my only copy to John Goddard of Village Music in Mill Valley, California." Another rarity to look for! 1965 1,2 - 7 WHOLE LOTTA SOUL/DRUNKEN BOAT OUT OF SIGHT RECORDS (US)
  2. The Roscoe Mitchell Sextet: Sound, (Delmark DS 408, 1966)
    Recently reissued on CD.
  3. Roscoe Mitchell and The Art Ensemble: The Art Ensemble 1967/68 Nessa NCD 2500 A/B/C/D/E (CD)20, Recorded: 5/18/1967, 5/19/1967, 6/26/1967, 8/11/1967, 8/25/1967, 9/2/1967, 11/2/1967, 11/25/1967, 3/4/1968, 3/11/1968 at Pete Bishop's Basement, Sound Studios, Lester Bowie's Basement, Roscoe Mitchell's Apartment, and Chess Studios, all Chicago, IL; Released: 10/1993) Details of personnel, tracks, and recording.
  4. Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble: Congliptious, (Nessa, 1968, re-released in above Nessa box)
  5. The Art Ensemble of Chicago: A Jackson in Your House, (Actuel BYG 529 302 / BYG 28,
    1969) Recorded June, 23, 1969 in Paris. Steve Smith says: "Now here's a mystery I wonder if anyone can explain? I have two different versions of "A Jackson in Your House" and I wonder why that is? The LP version (Affinity AFF 9, 1970) includes as its third track "The Waltz," a brief waltz (naturally) that clocks in at 1:15. But the CD version (Affinity AFF 752, 1989) omits "The Waltz" and includes instead "Hey Friend," a completely different track which begins and ends in audience applause. "Jackson" was originally a studio recording. Can anybody shed any light on this curiosity? Also on CD the timing for "Get in Line" is a minute longer, but I don't notice anything omitted on the vinyl version, so, short of sitting here with a stopwatch, I'll just assume the timing on the LP is incorrect."
  6. The Art Ensemble of Chicago: The Spiritual, (Polydor Freedom FLP 40108, Freedom 278125, Arista Freedom 1903, Trio PA 7034, Black Lion BLCD760219, 1201 Music 90272 6/26/1969, Paris) Toro (RM) 8:25; Lori Song (JJ) 3:53; That The Evening Sky Fell Through The Glass Wall And We Stood Alone Somewhere (JJ&LB) 5:58; The Spiritual (RM) 20:07

  8. The Art Ensemble of Chicago: Eda Wobu, (JMY (re-released in 1991), 1969)
    Steve Smith says: "Eda-Wobu" presents a single piece performed in Paris on October 5, 1969 and I'd assumed that it was a quasi-legitimate release from a radio archive - isn't that what JMY released for the most part while they were around? Does anybody have the live Byg or Affinity albums to check the date?
