Music USA #695-B, Hungarian Jazz Guests

Description: The entire program for the jazz hour (second hour) of Music USA, aired on November 23, 1956. This program features Hungarian jazz musicians who sent a recording to Conover shortly before the Hungarian Uprising of 1956; this hour was apparently was quickly assembled to replace the original program #695-B which had been recorded in October, but set aside for this replacement. The musicians remain unnamed, presumably for their safety, as Conover notes that it is unknown whether the musicians in the recording were still alive. Gerry Mulligan, Tony Scott, Quincy Jones, J.J. Johnson, and Billy Taylor comment on the musical selections.
