notes.png The end. Died 2005, aged 79. Well that was a job and a half. Key points to note for discographers would be that there were quite a few occasions where the chronological release order of the Blue Note and Verve LPs didn’t follow the catalogue number, for whatever reason. One of the features of Jimmy’s catalogue was that whole sessions would often be released many years after the event. It was impossible to ascertain whether these were intended as whole albums when they were originally recorded and I wasn’t about to start guessing. I decided therefore to automatically label every album that was issued more than 5 years after the recording dates as a compilation. It’s possible that this could rule out an album which may otherwise have been included in the “A-list” (under the “original intent” rule). As a kind of balance to this, I gave the artist the benefit of extending the 3 year guideline to 5 years (re the limit from recording to release date), thereby giving his prolific works every chance to be included in the “A-list”. I worked extremely hard to find the accurate release dates, but there are instances where best-educated guess had to come into play. Overall, I’m very happy with the end result as this was a very challenging task.
