About the album

Stan Getz rose to  prominence with Woody Herman’s recording of “Early Autumn.” In 1958 he settled in Copenhagen and stayed for 3 years. He played at the Café Montmartre with Jan Johansson (p) Dan Jordan (b) and William Schiøpffe (dr). They recorded these two CDs in the Kildevang Church in Copenhagen, the 14th & 15th of January 1960. The recording took place in the daytime and they recorded the same tunes they played in the evening at the Montmartre. They recorded 17 tunes whereas 7 was composed by musicians like Oscar Pettiford’s “Café Montmartre Blues". Oscar Pettiford also lived in Copenhagen.
