It is well known that Joaquin Murphey initially learnt Hawaiian style and could imitate Hawaiian masters impeccably. His interest in horn players is also documented in Kenneth Rainey’s article in the Journal of Country Music. http://tangleweed.org/blog/uploads/earlJoaquinMurphey_jcm.pdf

Rainey also states that he was “copying solos by great jazz artists on the steel guitar.” Here is a wonderful example of Joaquin quoting Django Reinhardt. This sound file consists of the opening phrases of Django’s Honeysuckle Rose recorded in 1938, followed by Joaquin’s quote in his recording with the Plainsmen from 1946.

Does anyone have a discography of Murphey’s performances?

Very nice! I should try to do that as an exercise!

The more interesting part of the Djando solo to me is the from 0:14 to 0:17, Joaquin do it very well to from 0:36 to 0:39.

Anybody can help me about the thinking and theory about this a little dissonant run?

Guy:

Not a discography per se, but here’s a list of over 400 songs. These are a combination of various 45s, 78s, live performances, broadcasts, transcriptions, cassettes, LPs, and CDs.

It’s known to be incomplete. Some obvious items are missing—most of the Midland LP, most of the “Murph” CD, as well as maybe 20 or 30 songs from the first 10 years of Joaquin’s recording career with various vocalists.

Additionally, there are a handful of tracks (perhaps 10?) that are omitted because although Joaquin is believed to be on or at the session, his contribution is inaudible or extremely brief, without a solo.

Overall, this list should contain perhaps 90% of his lifetime output of which I’m aware.

The steel player on some of these recordings is in dispute. Those titles are so indicated as “possibly”, “probably”, or “supposedly”.

Additions welcome.

I have no idea how this will paste, so apologies for the formatting. Copy and paste it into your own document.

Sweet, Andy. Very useful but unfortunately it's not the same solo. Reinhardt recorded Honeysuckle Rose seven times according to this online discography so that must be one of the others.
http://djangopedia.com/wiki/index.php?title=Django%27s_Full_Discography

Sebastien, the technique being used in the second phrase is basically a segmented chromatic scale. This is one way it could be played. I haven't listened really hard to Joaquin's version. This chart is Django's line, set for C6th. Maybe Mike Neer could correct it. Anyway, the technique is understandable.



Mitch, that is outstanding. I had an inkling you might have this together. The 1946 date that I quoted above was taken from an earlier Forum post of yours. It would be great to turn this into a more complete discography in the style of the Django one quoted above. It would need some more detail, dates, matricies etc. What you have posted is really useful in itself. But a complete discography, published here and maybe elsewhere, would be a great tribute to Joaquin and of immeasurable help to all who wish to study his music.

Mitch, it would be really great to get your data into a spreadsheet with fields for song title, recording date and headline artist as it would useful to order the titles both alphabetically and chronologically. I haven't seen this done but I guess it is possible. I am no spreadsheet expert but I wonder how easily the data could be entered. Probably not without much effort, I suspect. Also I wonder how a field for chronology would cope with 'circa 1942' or 'late 1948 or early 1943'.

It is a project I would be happy to put time towards.

Any thoughts?

Thanks Mitch

BTW I play with a gypsy jazz guitarist and he notices the Django references in alot of Murpheys phases, sometimes a complete solo......

Hi,

That's quite the list of Joaquin Murphey, I'm new to the forum and probably like a lot of other people, I was blown away when I heard Murphey's playing.

I know this is an old thread but thought I would ask, how would someone go about locating a few of the mp3's in that list?

Thanks!
Gary

I have bought the coast recordings of Andy Parker and the Plainsmen on the internet. They show up from time to time

I also got some that were posted by a forum member for free some years ago, I don't remember who though

Thanks Guy! I must be very busy at the time and didn't see your response. Thanks a lot to take the time, I will work on these nice chromatic lines!

Be sure to check out Chris Clem's collection on YouTube. He's generously uploaded lots of terrific Joaquin cuts, many with extraordinary good sound quality for material this old.

For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_a7IrsaZWY

There are a number of apps like KeepVid that allow you to download and save YouTube content. So if you want 'em, grab 'em while they are freely available.

How do you suppose he was blocking the melody notes in Honeysuckle Rose?

Great thread Andy.
Thanks for the link. Really enjoyed reading it from beginning to end so much that I copied it for my files. Sure I'll want to read it again.
What an incredible man he was and what a sad ending....
Best wishes,
Andy

I am a little late to the party (two years, wow!), but I'd be happy to poke my two cents in.

If you have found this segment of the solo difficult to play with the chromatic notes, it's because there is another way to do it (and I'd bet my hat that Joaquin did it this way).

The 3 note chromatic segments are all played on strings 3 and 4. I hope you don't mind if I demonstrate it (sorry, I'm suffering with a nasty cold!):

https://youtu.be/F64iAqse0RQ

Anyway, Guy thanks for being a great contributor to the forum!

PS: Thanks, Mitch, for that exhaustive list.

Mike you just about got it now.
I think if I practice that for about a year I'll be able to get it at about half that speed. Whoa! Shocked Laughing
Joaquin sure has a way of separating the men from the boys in this game!

Thanks, Mike. That’s great and makes a lot of sense. There are some lightning position shifts! I think the intonation in bar 11 of the unissued recording further supports your theory.

And Andy, what a thread of expert opinion! Absolute gold! Many thanks for that.

I have been thinking about the influence of Django on Joaquin for awhile. This example shows that without doubt he was listening but I have not been able to find any other direct quotes. “Djangoish”, sure, but specific licks?? If anyone can cite anything specific, I would be appreciative. I have been fairly deeply into the Django catalogue with my ears open looking for such and have also studied an excellent recent book on Django’s playing by Ben Givan that I would recommend to anyone who is interested.

https://www.press.umich.edu/1997109/the_music_of_django_reinhardt

This is a Youtube playlist I have put together which has the solos that Givan transcribed for his book. It is not a bad listening experience just for itself. The tracks are in the order that they appear in the book.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJcr3DYBemcO_UcW1Vj9s5qzuAqWUr7he

Givan also did a heap of transcriptions that didn’t make it to the book that can be found here. This is some heavy duty work!

https://sites.google.com/site/klemjc/

Here is a comparison between Django’s recording and two takes by Joaquin. The unissued one is spoiled but it is good to hear and compare. The quotation only lasts 14 bars before he gives it away on both takes. I wonder if he did this as an exercise without prompting and without the bandleader knowing. There are some subtle differences between all three in the first 14 bars. One wonders if the dropout in the unissued take was technical or in the player’s hands and whether Joaquin knew that the take was going to be bad.

Love this thread!

Here is my take on this solo that I worked up a few months back. I had to slow it to about 80%. Murph is burning it up on this! Learning this solo taught me a lot.
