Volume 15 (2023)

The fifteenth volume of Current Research in Jazz features articles involving detailed historical research in the areas of discography, musical analysis, and chronology.

Of the one-time studio meetings organized by Metronome magazine, that of the 1948 poll-winners is of particular note. This article examines the convoluted history of its releases and considers the solo identifications that have puzzled listeners for decades.

With the fourth installment in a series of chronologies documenting the day-to-day performance activities of trumpeter-bandleader Maynard Ferguson and his orchestra, the years 1965 through 1967 are addressed. This was a period of major events: the dissolution of his full-time big band and the formation of a sextet, a move from the east to the west coast, featured participation in the Expo 67 world’s fair, and finally a transatlantic trip from America to England that began with a tour and ended up lasting years.
