Amazingly, this album was only released in 1985 (in the can for 24 years!). It features one of Hank's favorite rhythm sections: Wynton Kelly (piano), Paul Chambers (bass), and Philly Joe Jones (drums). Hank obviously thought this session was never going to come out, but he knew he had created some interesting melodies that he didn't want to discard. He reworked melodic elements of Hank's Other Soul into his classic 1963 composition East Of The Village. and melodic elements of Gettin' And Jettin' into his 1963 composition Up A Step.
Comparison of Gettin' And Jettin' with Up A Step: A major difference: they are in two different keys. Although the melodies for the A sections [(A) and (C)] start out exactly the same, they change rhythmically after the first two measures.
July 7, 1930 – May 30, 1986
