Sometimes I get a bit sentimental hearing this,
most of the times it happens listening to the versions
without the words...but that mr. Kirk version does it
even with all the words to the tune...
I included this old-time-favourite-de-moi
in some older posts as well, you can look 'em up below...

Great! thanks a lot, looking forward hearing those...

Dri said...

Mingus recorded at least 2 versions, on the albums "Ah Hum" & "Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus", where GPPH is credited as "Theme for Lester Young".

A fine solo version is the one recorded in 1969 by John Mc Laughlin on his album "My goal's beyond"

E-mile said...

Dri, thanks for the feedback, I got all 3 CD's you mentioned [:-)
For me the "classic" GPPH version is the one from Ah Um...
@ Moi Meme: some REALLY nice versions, totally awesome, thanks a lot for sharing!
peace, E-mile

Dri said...

Here are 12 more versions by Gil Evans, my heroe : mp3 only, as my hard drive is smaller than my usb key, and lowbitrate for the edited ones, as I don't like much to bootleg edited recordings. I also added the one with J. McLauglin (Ravenna 1986) you already had and a few rare & nice pics of GE.

http://rapidshare.com/files/450464361/Goodbye_Pork_Pie_Hat_Gil_Evans.zip

In all the versions you collected, my favorite ones are Roland Kirk's on "The Return of the 5000 db man" (like you, E-mile), the big band one of Mingus, chorused by Booker Ervin, the solo version of Mc Laughlin on "My goal's beyond" and the Gil Evans-Steve Lacy duet on "Paris Blues".

Dri said...

BTW, here are 10 versions of Gil Evans' orchestration of Summertime. I didn't checked all the versions you collected, but I guess you already have some of them.

All the best. Philippe (from France)

Wow, what a superb post and a great thread. This sort of thing is simply thrilling. I thought that you were mostly an R&B and rock head, but your jazz shoes sure are shiny!

CF, this blog is mainly an outlet for me NOT to listen to "jazz" all day [:-)

E-mile said...

Daniel, just found your second batch in the mail! thanks a lot! Outstanding work m8 [:-)
peace, E-mile

Dri said...

I've found 5 more versions of Summertime I collected for friends playing the tune. I checked (a bit quickly) your incredible collection, according to the durations you mention, they could be new for you :

John Lewis/Afternoon in Paris 1990
Art Pepper/Modern Art 1956
Chet Baker/My favourite songs 1988
Charlie Parker/Bird with strings 1949
Helen Merrill/Dream of you 1957

http://www.mediafire.com/?k2bjidq198ba7fr

I must have at least another live version by Gato Barbieri on my hard drive and I'll upload it when at home.

E-mile said...

thanks Philippe, will check 'm for doubles...

2 live versions of Summertime by Gato Barbieri : 20010818 Rudersdorf & (w Enrico Rava) 20021027 Frankfurt

That's all, folks ! (for me, as I'm sure E-mile won't stop searching)

Crawfish said...

You guys are too much. In the old days we'd say: Smokin'!

amnesia said...

I'd be very grateful if the twelve Gil Evans versions originally posted on 1 March 2011 could be made available again.
Thanks
Robert

E-mile said...

amnesia, all 3 links from moi meme )incl. the march 1st) are still alive....I tried them myself just now [:-)

amnesia said...

E-mile, thanks for that. I was after Dri's Gil Evans post of 1 March (which isn't working)but find I do have them. I'm downloading Moi Meme's first post -I had missed that - but it seems that his second and third are the same, from mediafire reference, which is how I got confused!. Thanks again.
