The intended 15-CD Complete Edition series on the Masters Of Jazz label was sadly discontinued following their release of Volume 7, but the volumes that were issued remain the single most comprehensive overview of the period they cover.

A four-disc anthology issued by Proper Records in 2003 covers most of Wardell's career, but of course, it is far from comprehensive.

What is listed in this discography reflects this author's best understanding at present.

The personnel for the Hines band during Wardell's stay is also unclear.

Although frequently listed, Bennie Green appears to have been drafted by the time of these recordings and does not rejoin the band until the summer of 1946 at the earliest.

A trombonist named Happy Pappy Smith is usually included among the personnel but as I have not found any contemporary mention he is not listed here.

John Birks Dizzy Gillespie, Al Killian, Freddie Webster, Maurice Shorty Mc Connell (tp); Claude Jones, Howard Scott, James Trummy Young (tb); Albert Budd Johnson, Jimmy Powell (as); Wardell Gray, Thomas Crump (ts); Rudy Rutherford (bar); Clyde Hart (p); Connie Wainwright (g); Oscar Pettiford (b); Rossiere Shadow Wilson (d); William Clarence Billy Eckstine (voc).

Bill Eckstein Waxes Blues For De Luxe Records NEW YORK, April 29---Billy Eckstein, currently at the Onyx Club, cut two vocal blues for De Luxe this week, Good Jelly Blues and I Stay in the Mood for You. (...) A second waxing session with Eckstein and the ork is set up for next week. Notice the identical personnel on I Got A Date With Rhythm which appears to have first been issued in October of 1945, when it was backed by I Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray by The Four Blues (MX# 148).
