GUEST,Phil d'Conch Stinson Records Revisted (58* d) RE: Stinson Records Revisted 03 Jul 21


Typical of the many jazz and folk artists that signed up for the second half:

Mary Lou Signs For Four Plates
NEW YORK CITY – (SNS) – Asch Recording Co., 117 W. 46 Street, announces that the famed and celebrated Mary Lou Williams, top notcher pianist and arranger has been signed to an extensive contract.

Tow [sic] records (4 sides) are scheduled for the wax, and include two of Mary Lou's original compositions, (titles not yet released).

Her first album was recently released by the same company and are being hailed as a “Must” by all critics and music enthusiasts. It includes three original solos, and three numbers played with accompanying musicians.”
[Jackson Advocate (MS), 15 July 1944, p.7]

The good times barely survived WWII and what is known as the “Asch-Stinson” label that comes next actually represents the end of the partnership not the beginning. Asch Records same-same.
