Len,

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.

Others include:
Bill Evans/Claus Ogerman "Symbiosis"  (25 minute first movement, 41 
minutes total),
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.

.... been there myself,
