This week's Night Lights show pays a centennial-year tribute to arranger Eddie Sauter and his work with Red Norvo, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Ray McKinley, the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra, and Stan Getz.  You can listen to the program online here:

Great show as usual!   Thank God he was able to get away from the overly busy Goodman, and write music without BG barging into every second of his arrangements.

There wasn't much room left for him with the Mildred Bailey stuff either. Getz made up for his bad side by letting Eddie write what he wanted on Focus and Mickey-One, one of my fave films of all time.

Hey JC, yes, I briefly mention this in the show and include a 1957 SWF band recording of his composition  "Tropic of Kommingen,"
