                Ian Carr Discography

This discography attempts to list everything commercially released, on which Ian Carr played or composed. It does not include recording session index numbers with dates. It is derived from the discography which was posted on the original Ian Carr and Nucleus website in May 2005. It has been shortened to include only main artists, title, record label, catalogue number, release date(s) (if applicable), track listing, personnel details and recording dates (where known). Additional information such as producer, engineer etc has only been added to ‘primary’ recordings, specifically under the aegis of Ian Carr (or Nucleus or where Nucleus played a primary role or where Ian Carr composed a track and this information is denoted by bold type) rather than ones on which he played as a session musician or guest musician. This discography is probably not 100% complete but it does aim to be as accurate as possible. The entries below are arranged in order of release date (or assumed release date), not recording date, hence some early Rendell–Carr and Nucleus recordings appear towards the end of the discography.

Reel Recordings (CD) & Stamford Audio (2 LP) both released 2010

"The Quintet's concert took place at the Students Union Hall at London's University College on December 12, 1966 among an intimate and enthusiastic audience of friends, and remarkably was recorded by George Foster. Deputizing for bassist Dave Green, who left early due to a double booking at Ronnie Scott's Old Place, was New Jazz Orchestra's bassist Tony Reeves, who plays beautifully throughout. From the exhilarating, and hitherto unreleased, Trane’s Mood, through the lyrical Webster’s Mood, the quintet’s performance overflows with emotion and beauty." [From Reel Recordings website]

The United Jazz + Rock Ensemble Second Generation

Wolfgang Dauner’s United 2

Connector Records 59900-2

-2012

Ausgeschlafen (Dauner)

Capriccio Funky (Dauner)

Gone with the weed (Carr)

Feuerwerxmusik (Dauner)

Double Bind (Kriegel)

South Indian Line (Mariano)

Wendekreis Des Steinbocks (Dauner)

Was Geht Up And Dauner (Dauner)

Ganz Schöen Heiss Man (Mangelsdorf, Hiseman)

Flo Dauner (drums), Dave King (bass), Frank Kuruc (guitar),

 Adrian Mears (trombone), Prof. Stephan Zimmermann,

Tobias Weidinger, Claus Stoetter (trumpets), Klaus Graf, Bobby Star (saxophones),

Wolfgang Dauner (bandleader, grand piano).

Despite only benefitting from two members of the original UJRE (Dauner and Dave King), this album is significant because it boasts compositions by several of the (sadly now deceased) erstwhile members of that illustrious band including Ian Carr’s “Gone with the Weed”, which here is given an even more upbeat and funky interpretation weighing in at over 8 minutes and for Carr fans, this track is well worth the entrance fee alone.
