Dance To The City Beat - Kai Winding


Cha Cha Chicago

Dance To The City Beat
The Kai Winding Trombones
Columbia CL 1329

From the back cover: This album was recorded in Columbia's great 30th Street sound studio in Manhattan on the finest in stereophonic recording equipment. Kai's arrangements make full use of the pleasures of stereophonic listening. The high-fidelity monophonic album shares the life-like qualities of these advanced recording techniques. Stereo placement: left – tenor trombones and piano; center – drums; right – bass trombones and string bass.

From Billboard - June 8, 1959: Winding follows his "Swingin' States" best seller with an equally swinging' tribute to several cities. All of the tunes have names of cities in their titles. The arrangements with trombones predominant, of course, are imaginative and inventive. Selections include (Sidewalks of) Manhattan," " Charleston" and "Kalamzoo." Excellent cover.
