Music From Gigi In Jazz - Shorty Rogers

Lerner And Loewe's
Music From "Gigi" In Jazz
Shorty Rogers And His Giants
RCA Victor LPM-1696


Shorty Rogers - Trumpet and Fluegelhorn
Bill Holman - Tenor Sax
Pete Jolly - Piano
Larry Bunker - Vibes
Mel Lewis - Drums
Ralph Pena or Buddy Clark - Bass

From Billboard - May 19, 1958: This is one of the tastiest jazz treatment of the "Gigi" score. The arrangements are imaginative and artistic. Rogers and His Giants create a satisfying swinging mood. In addition to Rogers on trumpet and fluegelhorn, personnel are B. Hollman, tenor sax; P. Jolly, piano; L. Bunker, vibes; M. Lewis, drums and R. Pena or B. Clark, bass. It will probably click best with West Coast fans, tho it offers wide appeal.

  1. Fun. RCA used the same cover for Gogi Grant's version of Gigi.
