One Night Stand - 1962 Teddy Wilson
This is my favorite "One Night Stand". The show was mostly big band remotes from all over the country. It's surprising how many orchestras were working well into the 1960s. Mostly regional ones that never had a national impact, but take 12-20 musicians playing well with good scores and it can be great.
"One Night Stand" wasn't always big bands. Teddy Wilson was a great pianist on hundreds of sessions backing Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday and the rest of the best.
