Dave Lambert Music 1945-1962


On the last Duplex Mystery Jazz Hour on WZBC, I got through music from the early days of pioneering jazz vocalist Dave Lambert up through much of the Lambert, Hendricks and Ross material. On my next show, I'll cover the material he did as he approached his untimely death in 1966, but right now, here's two solid hours of scat and vocalese with Dave Lambert and confreres.

Were the two songs, Hot Halavah and In The Merry Land of Bop including in the recording of the show? I'm search for them...trying to find very early Blossom Dearie and I believe she is on those. I found your blog and this playlist, and downloaded the show (which is great),...but I think those tracks are missing? I am having trouble finding them anywhere.

The show was a while ago and they're on the playlist. I'll have to check the show to verify that I played them, but I believe I did. Blossom is on them. 1948. I have those 2 tracks on vinyl: "Mixes" on Mainstream 804, a 2-record set.

Weird-I listened and although pretty sure I played them on the show, there seems to be an edit where those two tunes should be. Sorry about that.
