Cute - Neil Hefti

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine is looking for a version of "Cute" (the Hefti chart for the Basie band) done as a bass feature. He heard somewhere, that this exists.

Anyone knows anything? I only have the one version on the live Mosaic (which is a drum/flute feature)

help very appreciated! thanks,

Will have to check tonight: Horst Jankowski did a version of "Cute" on his c.1961 LP "Gäste bei Horst Jankowski" (on Metronome) that was used as the signature tune for a regular jazz radio broadcast on the German SDR (Süddeutscher Rundfunk) radio station for a VERY long time and therefore is bound to be fairly familiar to a certain generation (or generations) of radio listeners.

As I haven't listened to this LP for a while I don't remember, though, if a bass solo features prominently in that version. Will report back later.

Edit: Just saw the original post is eons old. Let us know, King Ubu, if your friend has found the version he is looking for.
