Re-upped all together as one file here

Most likely you will already know that nifty little tune called "Viva Tirado", groovy as can be (to say the least). There are many versions of it out there (just do a simple Discogs search)) and here I'll show you a few of my favourites.

First of all: the cowboy who started the fight, the man himself, trumpeter and composer of "Viva Tirado", Gerald Wilson.

Original LP 1962

Next up the version everybody is referring to when talking "Viva Tirado".  El Chicano from Los Angeles.

2 Original LPs 1970/1971

A (sort of) psychedelic and/or library version by the Duke Of Burlington (moniker of Italian composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Mario Battaini).

Original LP 1970

A somehow rare "cult version" by El Chicles (not to be confused with El Chicano).

Original LP 1970

And another great version by famous Jack Costanzo a.k.a. Mr. Bongo.

Original LP 1971

The JCOA Series

Original LP 1973

Original LP 1975


Original LP 1975

Original LP 1974

All of them here.

And of course you will miss a few, but let me explain:
The 3 albums, which are credited solely (yes, I know, don't be so picky) to the Jazz Composer's Orchestra are available somewhere (or rather ANYWHERE) else. Then there's a single album by Cecil Taylor & JCO, which was first released as part of the double album "The Jazz Composer's Orchestra". And at last the album by "Leroy Jenkins & JCO", that I simply don't own.
