This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Nick Newell was Gonzalez first call tenor sub, played many gigs with them over the years.

BIG CHIEF


Big Chief was a jazzy band formed in 1976. Many musicians have been part of the band during two decades, and I can't find any way to trace those lineups. If anyone can help, please... Some of those musicians are: John Etheridge, Geoff Castle, Henry Lowther (trumpet, violin), Pete Lemer (keyboards), Phil Mead, Nick Newell, Les Davidson, Alan Ross, Art Themen, Ray Warleigh, Louis Borenius, Tony Reeves, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Mick Jacques, Adrian Paton, John Fry, Tony Edwards, etc.

But I don´t have info about the period and members of the band while Nick Newell played with them.


DARK BLUES


Veteran band from the Oxford scene. Nick knew them from the mid 60s, but joined them in 1985. But don´t have more info about the lineups of the band, except for founder Nigel Tully. Help, please! They have 7 albums, but don´t have any of them, so can´t know if Nick appears there. Does anybody know?

This was one of the recent lineups for Dark Blues:

    • Guests: Clem Cattini, Ron Lawrence, Nick Trevisick
    • Comments: The thanks section mentions these musicians: Clem Cattini, Zaine Griff, John Beecham, Nick Newell and Mike Cotton, so I guess they played in the album (can someone confirm this fact, please?).

    • Comments: Great double live album, some CD release missed some track. I've bought the new reissue as 2CD, being the 2nd CD an enhanced CD showing live video footage for the computer. The album also features Nick Newell as additional keyboardist, so I guess he also toured with the band in that tour.

COMPILATIONS AS A BAND MEMBER (2 credits)
  • Come dancing with the Kinks - the best of The Kinks 1977-1986 - The Kinks (07/1986)

    • Members: Mick Avory, John Beecham, John Dalton, Dave Davies, Ray Davies, Ian Gibbons, John Gosling, Bob Henrit, Alan Holmes, Nick Newell, Andy Pyle, Jim Rodford

    • Comments: This is a compilation originally released as a 2LP with 18 tracks. The CD reissue is missing 3 tracks, in order to fit into 1CD. It contains previously released material, but of important note is that there is a song only released as a single, ´Father Christmas´, and a rare track, ´Long distance´. As the period covered spawns through different Kinks lineups, I must say that other musicians appearing includes Ron Lawrence (bass), Alan Holmes (sax), John Beecham (trombone), Nick Newell (keyboards, sax), Nick Trevisik (drums), Clem Cattini (drums), plus future members Jim Rodford (bass), Ian Gibbons (keyboards), Bob Henrit (drums).

Prolific drummer, he appears as sessionmen in many albums, as we're going to read. I haven't been so lucky at finding info about his bands. He was born in New York.


THE CATSKILLS


First band I've been able to trace with him was The Catskills.

The Catskills was a big band. This was their lineup at the end of 1965:

JANIS JOPLIN BAND


In December 1968, Janis Joplin starts her new group, Kozmic Blues Band:

But in January 1969, Bill King had to leave the band to fulfill military duties.

In January 1969, Bill King was replaced by a great player, Richard Kermode:

In April 1969, Brad Campbell is back, and they add another sax player, Cornelius 'Snooky' Flowers:

But soon after, Roy left the band (being replaced by Lonnie Castille) before they recorded any album. But some tracks have been appearing in posthumous albums, as we can read below.

By the way, I have an album called Janis, from the soundtracks of the motion picture of the same name. There are 3 tracks recorded live with The Kozmic Blues Band, from a concert at a military base in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1969, and filmed by a crew for Munich TV. The audio was not too good so producer Elliot Mazer hired Roy prior to the album release to overdub his drum parts.


THE CATSKILLS


He rejoined The Catskills for a while with Eddie Ashman, but I don't know about the lineups. Any help would be appreciated.


AND THEN...


He also started playing in sessions before joining Petula Clark for many years.


PETULA CLARK BAND


Roy Markowitz joined Petula Clark´s road band playing Europe, Iran and the US, mostly Las Vegas and Tahoe in 1971-87. He recorded two albums with her. The first was Come On Home on RCA, then Live at Albert Hall. During that time the guitarists were Hugh McCracken, Teddy Irwin, and Bob Mann. The conductors or music directors were Frank Owens and Harold Wheeler.

These were the musicians backing Petula Clark around 1973:

PETER ALLEN BAND


Roy has also played with Peter Allen, but can´t find info about when or the names of other musicians, except for John Trivers on bass. They supported Bette Midler´s first West Coast gig at the Troubadour in LA. Help with additional info, please...


AND THEN...


And then, I haven't been able to find more bands with Roy. But he has been playing in many albums, as we can read in the discography.

As a New York session musician, Roy also played on Broadway in Grease and for Twyla Tharp´s dance company at the Winterland on Broadway.

He played with Gerry Mulligan at a memorial service for Jim Buffington and recorded with Zoot Sims for The Manhattan Transfer.

His jingle work includes possibly the longest running commercial in any media the ´San Pelligrino´ Theme written by Jeff Hest.

Some years ago, Roy was producing an artist at his own facility in NY,and also was an adjunct Professor at Queensborough Community College.

DISCOGRAPHY: (53 albums known to me - Status: Quite advanced)

ALBUMS AS A BAND MEMBER (3 credits)
  • Live at The Royal Albert Hall - Petula Clark (1972)

  • Come on home - Petula Clark (1974)

  • Farewell song - Janis Joplin (1983)

    • Members: Peter Albin, Sam Andrew, Brad Campbell, Terry Clements, Snooky Flowers, Luis Gasca, Dave Getz, Roy Markowitz, Ken Pearson, Clark Pierson, John Till (RIP: Richard Bell, James Gurley, Janis Joplin, Richard Kermode)

    • Producer: Todd Rundgren
    • Technical: Vic Anesini, Bob Irwin
    • Comments: This posthumous album by the great Janis contains unreleased live and studio tracks with her three bands: the magnificent Big Brother & The Holding Company (6 tracks), plus Full Tilt Boogie Band (1 track) and Kozmic Blues Band (1 track), and one more track was recorded with Paul Butterfield Blues Band. But the albums states: "Additional musicians: Denny Seiwell, Chrissy Stewart, Mick Weaver, Elliot Mazer, Roy Markowitz, Peter Stroud, Vinny De La Rocca". That's because some songs were re-worked many years later, with studio musicians. By the way, the album contains a very lovely dedication to Janis from her old friend Country Joe McDonald.
