When Stan Getz was 18 years old ,Savoy’s producer Teddy Reig first hired him as sideman of Kai Winding.

Today I want to post about the recording before his leader’s work in Savoy Records.

In December 12. and 14.1945 Teddy Reig produced Kai Winding’s leader work.

Kai named his band “Kai’s Crazy Cats” and The members were Stan Getz(ts) ,Shorty Allen (p), Iggy Shevack (b) ,Shelly Manne (ds).

They recorded four tunes ,”Sweet Miss”“Loaded”“Grab Your Axe, Max”“Always”.

Stan played superb performance at “Grab Your Axe, Max”.

Fortunately we can hear their recordings(including alternate takes) on YouTube.
