Newstalgia Downbeat New Years Eve Special - Teddy Wilson, Eddie Heywood and Duke Ellington and His Orchestra live on December 31, 1957.
This weekend's Newstalgia Downbeat goes head first into New Years Eve with a broadcast special from December 31, 1957 featuring The Teddy Wilson Trio, The Eddie Heywood Trio and ringing in New Years with Duke Ellington and His Orchestra.
I'm not sure if this has seen the light of day or reissue since 1957, but it's a great (although kind of short) set from each group. This was part of a yearly seven hour extravaganza NBC Radio put on in the 1950's each New Year's Eve featuring bands all over the world, ringing in the New Year.
At any rate, if a Cool New Year's Eve is right up your street, by all means check this one out.
