Kai Winding was born on May 18, 1922, in Denmark.

Then he emigrated to the U.S. with his family when he was 12.

By this time, Kai had picked up the accordion.

When he was in high school he started playing the trombone.

He was influenced by Trummy Young and Jack Teagarden.

He was mainly self-taught in his two most meaningful areas: trombone and composition.

After a stint in the Coast Guard during World War II, the trombonist moved to New York.

In those days there were many sessions going on New York and a new kind of jazz had been growing such as BeBop.

Kai would sit in with a lot of these sessions at Minton’s Playhouse.

Benny Goodman at that time went into BeBop and asked Kai to join his orchestra in October.

Coincidentally, Stan Getz and Kai joined the orchestra on the same day.

I will confirm kai’s first recording by his official website.

Participation by Kai Winding as trombonist.

MAGIC CARPET SELECTIONS features recordings of Benny Goodman’s sextet and orchestra for AFRS’ Magic Carpet radio program.

Recorded between November 1945 and November 1946.

The Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS) started to produce a series of edited big band commercial network sustaining broadcasts during 1945.

It was named “Magic Carpet” and programs were 15 minutes.

“Magic Carpet” and “One Night Stand” are completely different programs.
