Live in Dusseldorf 1960 is an unreleased, original remastered concert recording
on 180g vinyl!
Impresario Norman Granz had moved to Switzerland in 1959. He coordinated his
"Jazz at the Philharmonic" tours from there, which at that time were very
successful in Europe. In the following year, he even sent off two all-star casts
under the slogan "Norman Granz's Jazz at the Philharmonic Presents Jazz Winners
The first cast was made up of Ella Fitzgerald, Roy Eldridge, the Jimmy Giuffre
Trio, and the Shelly Manne Quintet, while the second cast brought together the
Miles Davis Quintet, the Oscar Peterson Trio, and the Stan Getz Quartet.
At Dusseldorf's Rheinhalle theater, Stan Getz was on stage with his own quartet.
The playbill announced the saxophonist's Scandinavian band; however, prior to
the tour he had dismissed several of its members and so the cast instead
included Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen, two fellow Americans.
Approximately nine months after the concert in Dusseldorf, the expatriate made
his comeback in the U.S. and shortly afterwards became world renowned not only
among jazz enthusiasts but also with a much wider audience, thanks to the
growing popularity of bossa nova music.
