Jazz highlights from the February 23rd show with your host Geo Warner:
Day In Day Out is from a 1957 Verve release titled “Songs for Distingue Lovers” that was produced by Norman Granz. The sessions reunited Billie Holiday with trumpeter Harry Edison and saxophonist Ben Webster, both of whom the singer had worked with during the 1930’s and 1940′s: Edison as a member of the Count Basie Orchestra during her brief stay as the band’s girl singer, and Webster from the recordings she made under her own name for Vocalion Records and Okeh Records.
Ben Webster (tenor saxophone)
Harry “Sweets” Edison (trumpet)
