Like Ben Webster Stuff Smith lived his last years in Europe. He died in Munich September 25, 1967 and is buried in Denmark. Stuff recorded with some of the Danish violinists. On this cd he did a radio broadcast with Svend Asmussen and another with Poul Olsen. There are two sessions from The Montmartre Club where Stuff is backed by Kenny Drew, NHØP and Alex Riel. There is a recording of “Caravan” which is not to be believed. It’s swingin’ like mad.
