jazz Gigi by Hank Jones


The second Jazz version. Andre Previn and Shelly Manne scored big with a jazz My Fair Lady, and proceeded to try the same trick a bunch more times in the next 5 years. I showed their Gigi in the last post. Here, a minor label gets Hank Jones to do the same thing. It is a tolerably good record, marred by the fact that most of the songs in Gigi aren’t so wonderful.
