John Young Trio: You Go To My Head
I finally found the time to update my discography of Chicago pianist John Young. I added some sessions that I found in Tom Lords Jazz Discography as well as some scans of records and CDs I managed to acquire after the last update. Like for example the LP that trumpeter Bobby Bryant recorded for Vee Jay in 1961 (though it was only issued at some time in the 1970s):
or the Joe Venuti LP from 1976 (released in 1978) for Flying Fish:
or Eddie Johnson’s Nessa Lp which also has John Young on it:
This beautiful interpretation was originally recorded for the small Chicago label Seymour in September 1950, but it only came out on Chance some three years later. If you want to know more about the label Seymour, go to the Seymour site at the Red Saunders Research Foundation. On this 45 rpm (it also exists on 78rpm) John Young is accompanied by an as yet unidentified guitarist and by drummer Red Lionberg. Enjoy!
P.S.: Soon (I guess in two weeks) I will present an old R’nB 78 rpm which has John Young playing piano. This 78rpm is not mentioned in any standard source you can think of and it looks like Young is also the vocalist on one of the sides. So John Young fans (I know there are some) stay tuned!
