DevraDoWrite is trying to answer a question from one of her blogees. This is it:
In 1966, the Hampton Hawes trio (with Red Mitchell & Donald Bailey) recorded â€˜liveâ€™ for Contemporary Records at Mitchellâ€™s Studio Club in Los Angeles (the â€˜Mitchellâ€™ in question was no relation to Red, the bassist). Two LP albums were subsequently issued: The SÃ©ance and Iâ€™m All Smiles. My question is: Do you â€“ or does anyone among your many readers happen to recall the address of this particular club?
Phil Woods and Ray Bryant also recorded at Mitchell’s. I have no further clues.
