09/02/2021: “Misty” by Bob Brookmeyer and Stan Getz

This song is profoundly lovely. It’s measured, calm jazz for an evening’s contemplation.

In these lockdowns, a song like this goes a long way. It’s like marshmallows, but with saxophones. If that makes sense.

I love the way that Stan Getz’ saxophone and Bob Brookmeyer’s trombone play off against each other so supportively too!

With Elvin Jones on drums and Herbie Hancock on piano, the song simply can’t miss…

The song was originally released in 1955 by Erroll Garner – the version here was released in 1964 on Bob Brookmeyer and Friends.
