Jim Hall's Concierto (19' on CTI) named by Rick was certainly one of
the faves for bathroom breaks in the 70s and 80s. I know at least one
station (unnamed) which still has its only bathroom at the end of a
long hall, down long stairs and in the basement. When that record was
playing on weekends or late at night you knew no one would answer the
phone. The Miles/Gil Evans version of the piece runs 16 minutes.
Bill Evans/Claus Ogerman "Symbiosis" (25 minute first movement, 41
Phil Woods/ Patrick Williams "An American Concerto" (15' first
movement, 38' total),
and how about those Buck Clayton Jam Sessions, "Huckle-Buck" (20') and
Robbins' Nest (17')?
Then, of course, there's Mingus' "Epitaph" but that's many shorter
movements so that probably doesn't count. But there are a number of
live performances by Mingus that run well over 15 minutes and some of
those old Prestige jam sessions which sometimes ran a whole album side.
This list will be welcomed by the weekend and late night announcers.
