Side 1
Time Content
Start People are chatting and clapping.
00:00:23 Sydney Bechet's "Swing Parade" begins to play. Song from Soprano Summit's first album.
00:03:41 Bob Wilber announces the musicians and which instruments they are playing. He announces that next they will play an original song from their upcoming Chiaroscuro album called, "Grenadilla Stomp." He explains that his clarinet is made from grenadilla wood, and jokes that Kenny Davern's clarinet is made of hard rubber. The audience laughs. He says, "Everyone to their own tastes." You can hear Davern in the background say, "I'll get you for that, Wilber."
00:05:14 "Grenadilla Stomp"
00:13:48 Bob Wilber (presumably) announces next song - "Black and Tan Fantasy" by Duke Ellington
00:14:21 "Black and Tan Fantasy"
00:22:19 "Ole Miss" by W. C. Fields
00:28:26 Bob Wilber [presumably] says, "The reason we stand up after each number is not to acknowledge your applause as so much as to air off certain areas of the body which happen to be sticking to the seat due to incredible humidity here in Chicago." Someone from the audience asks when Marty will sing. Wilber responds, "Marty sings soon. He has a couple of numbers where we turn him loose."
00:29:16 Bob Wilber [presumably] says that the next piece called "Song of Songs" is probably the most requested piece they have in their library.
00:30:12 "Song of Songs"
00:36:03 Song ends and Wilber says, "And now we'd like to present our lovely vocalist, Chicago's own, Marty Grosz ... otherwise known as 'send in the clowns.'"
00:36:38 Wilber announces that the next song is one from Thomas Fats Waller called "How Can You Face Me Now?" sung by Marty Grosz. Song begins to play.
00:41:00 Wilber announces that they will be playing "Milneburg Joys" next. He makes some jokes about the song and their concerts.
00:41:48 "Milneburg Joys"
00:49:05 Wilber announces the name of the drummer again - Freddie Stohl. He also goes through the names and musicians in the band again.
00:49:33 Wilber announces the next song is "Chalumeau Blue" (as well as the title of their next album). "Chalumeau Blue" begins to play.
00:58:08 "Oh! Sister, Ain't That Hot"
01:06:11 "Egyptian Fantasy"
01:11:24 "Oriental Strut"
01:16:11 Wilber says, "Now it's time once again ladies and gentlemen for our lovely vocalist, Miss Grosz ... wending her way to the bandstand into the hearts of hundreds."
01:18:11 "A Porter's Love Song to His Chambermaid"
01:25:40 "I Wish That I Were Twins" begins to play. (Before they start to play this song, Marty Grosz [I think] tells a joke story about how Paul Newman is his famous movie star twin.)
01:31:20 "Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland" [tapes were changed at about this point in the recording]
01:36:57 Announces that they are going to do a song that they don't have an arrangement of - they just sort of do it off the tops of their heads, but the recording cuts out.
01:37:05 End

Start "Deed I Do" begins. People talk and laugh throughout the track.

00:23:20 "Don't Blame Me'
00:28:19 "Somebody Stole My Gal"

Sub-subseries 4: Drum Talk Coast To Coast
Item-ID: AFC 2011/053: SR714 Drum Talk Coast To Coast, 1964
Rack number: RXH 5591
Extent: 1 sound tape reel (acetate; Side 1: 00:41:14, Side 2: 00:16:35) : analog, 3 3/4 ips, quarter track, mono ; 7 in.
Archivist's note: In 1964 Down Beat magazine held three discussions with drummers, at three locations. This recordings seems to be the third discussion, held in Down Beat 's Chicago office. Elvin Jones and Joe Morello are interviewed by Don (no last name given). The event was covered in the magazine's March 26, 1964 issue.
LC engineer's note: This file contains audio from the left track of the tape, which was in reverse (highly unusual). This was corrected in both preservation and access files. This suggests the tape was recorded in the half-track mono format and later altered on a quarter-track stereo machine. The audio is almost completely inaudible from 00:24:50 to the end of the file but there is audio. It sounds like poor erasure.

00:10:14 [office noise, including a typewriter, and contruction noise, including hammering, makes the interview even more difficult to understand.]
00:14:25 One of the drummers says that it would be good for the young drummer to study mathematics.
00:15:04 The interviewer asks: "What is the most important thing for a drummer to know or for a drummer to do? The drummers reply.
00:18:29 The interviewer asks: "How much do you practice and how?" The drummers reply.
00:24:50 Blank until the end of recording.
00:41:14 End

00:07:20 Discussion of other rhythms, such as African and Indian.
00:10:18 The interviewer asks. "How does big band experience help a drummer?" The drummers respond.
00:13:56 Wrapping up the interview with social talk.

Sub-subseries 5: International Blues-and-Boogie Woogie Festival
Item-ID: AFC 2011/053: SR131 First International Blues-and-Boogie Woogie Festival, #1, September 14-15, 1974
Rack number: RXH 3680
Extent: 1 sound tape reel (polyester) : analog, mono ; 7 in.
Archivist's note: The festival was organized by Hans W. Ewert for Radio WDR and held in Cologne, West Germany. While the date on the tape box is September 8, the festival was held on September 14-15. Three digital files were created from this recording: their durations are 00:43:59, 00:47:20, and 01:35:42. See the notes for SR133
Side 1 (half-track format; 00:43:59)
LC engineer's note: The tape appears to have been initially recorded on a quarter-track stereo machine at 3.75 ips on one side only and later reused on a half track mono machine recorded on both sides and running at 7.5 ips. This file is Side 1 of the half-track format recording on the tape.

Side 1 (right channel in the quarter-track stereo format; 01:35:42)
LC engineer's note: The tape appears to have been initially recorded on a quarter track stereo machine at 3.75 ips on one side only and later reused on a half-track mono machine recorded on both sides and running at 7.5 ips. The audio in this file corresponds to what would be the right channel of Side 1 in the quarter track stereo format. Because of the incomplete erasure, one can hear backwards audio of what would be Side Two of the half-track mono rerecording bleeding over the audio as the file progresses. This makes the file very hard to listen to, but it was transferred for completeness sake, as well as historical interest as the audio is an air check of Boston radio stations WBCN-FM for the first 3:45, then WJIB-FM when it was a beautiful music station.
