OK, I'm embarassed here. Last time I write about this stuff from memory without diggigng out the CD!
You are correct that there is not a stereo version of "Cannonball Enroute." The tracks on the TWO
(not 3) CD set "Sophisticated Swing - The Emarcy Small Group Sessions" (Verve 314 528 408-2) are
indeed in mono. The only tracks in stereo were the sessions for "Cannonball's Sharpshooters."
However, it's strange that tracks recorded in 1957 at Capitol NYC (which I think was the case for
the "Enroute" and "Sophisticated Swing" sessions) were not recorded in stereo and mono at the same
time. That was the case for Richard Hayman and other sessions done there in that timeframe. It could
be that they never intended to release Cannonball on 2T tape, so they saved a little money by going
just mono. It's also possible that there were stereo tapes made but never ended up being released
and were then lost in the vaults.
