LLD's post on flute players with the GD got me thinking to the vexing question of the unidentified trumpet player on the Pure Jerry vol. 4 release (Keystone, "9/1/74"), which got me thinking to other unidentified guests on Jerry (non-GD) shows. So I figured I'd post a list and see what, if anything, turns up.
- NRPS 1970-07-07, Matrix, SF: "Kim" partners with Nelson (?) for the vocals on "Long Black Veil." Need to revisit.
- JGMS 1972-12-28, Lion's Share, San Anselmo: trumpet (check which songs). Dave Tamarkin remembers this as a "trumpet player who just walked up out of the crowd."
- JGMS 1973-07-05, Lion's Share, San Anselmo: trumpet player for set II. DNC user "sl halper" says this: "The trumpet player is almost certainly the same guy who's on Pure Jerry 4; he pulls out all the same quotes and is especially heavy with his attempts to play John Coltrane's Resolution over the jam on d3t2 [Merl's Tune]."
- JGMS 1973-10-02, Winterland, SF: trumpet player. Wolfgang's Vault says this is Bill Atwood, based on a suggestion by Corry Arnold.
- JGMS 1974-02-16, Keystone, Berkeley: conga player. My guess is Armando Peraza.
- JGMS 1974-07-12, Keystone, Berkeley: guitar player. Grisman shows up on mandolin and Martin is absent, so the lineup is definitely funky this night. Also on the bill is Locomotiv G.T., about which I know nothing, but which could of course have supplied the guest. I also wonder about Paul Pena, who was on the bill a lot during this period. Corry doubts either of these possibilities, suggesting it might be someone close to Grisman, possibly David Nichtern.
- JGMS 1974-09-01, Keystone, Berkeley: trumpet player. The Pure Jerry release (#4) is almost certainly a composite of more than one show, so the date is a little hard to pin.
- JGMS 1974-10-27, Golden Bear, Huntington Beach: circulating tapes list the guests as Ringo and Maria Muldaur. I only know of one Ringo, but have no idea if this is him. Need to revisit.
- JGB 1977-01-29, 1977-01-30, Keystone, Berkeley: there is a rhythm guitar player.
- JGB 1977-04-09, Keystone Palo Alto: again, a second guitarist.
- Reconstruction 1979-01-30, Keystone, Berkeley: female vocal accompanist on "Do I Move You?"
- Reconstruction 1979-07-20, Rio Theater, Rodeo: female vocalist on lead vocals for an unknown song I call "Heart of Fire" and backing vocals on "Telling My Friends".
That's all I have got. The sad observation is that the more Jerry descended into the Persian, the fewer onstage guests he had. But that's a different matter for a different post.
