Things Ain't What They Used To Be

Getz Meets Mulligan: In Hi-Fi – I Didn`t Know What Time It Was

Jazz highlights from the February 16th show with your host Alan Mertens:

Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan recorded some lasting music in the latter half of 1957. On August 1, they participated in an all-star septet that came to be known as Jazz Giants ’58.  Their compatibility of the Giants session made this follow-up In Hi-Fi, recorded less than three months later – inevitable. Sources reveal that it was Getz who chose the rhythm section, while Mulligan had the idea of swapping horns on the final three titles recorded. I Didn’t Know What Time It Was is the final track from the original sessions that were produced by Norman Granz.

Recorded October 12, 1957
