Indeed, Chewy, The two tracks you mention and "Tea For Two"/"Blue Moon" were issued on the Coronet label before fantasy in 1949.

It's an interesting story. The four songs were recorded at Sound Recorders in San Francisco, CA. Sound Recorders was one of the first studios in the US to experiment with erasable magnetic tape (Ampex Tape Co. was another local company from Redwood City, CA). Brubeck and company spent several unsuccessful hours trying to get some good takes with the new media. The problems were mechanical. The new tape machines were unable to record and/or playback at a constant speed. All of the work committed to tape were scrapped. So, they recorded those four tracks in 30 minutes on acetates and all four of those songs are first (and only) takes from that session. Those four songs were then released by Coronet. They had very successful sales. The label itself was owned by a Dixieland Trombonist named Jack Sheedy and the records were pressed by the Circle Record Co. owned by Sol and Max Weiss. When Coronet closed it's doors, the records were still being ordered by the record stores, so the Weiss brothers and Dave Brubeck bought the masters. The Weiss brothers started up the Fantasy label to re-release these songs.

For you Sci-Fi fans, according to legend, the new label was named after the Sci-Fi Magazine.

How come I didn't know Tjader backed Brubeck? About this I must research further.


Tjader Did get his start on those early Brubeck band sides, but it should be pointed out that his real breakthrough came when he joined George Shearing in 1954.
