Johansson’s initial periods as a head emerged in 1956, although he stayed an associate of Johnson’s quintet until its separation in 1959. It had been also through the ’50s that Johansson found the eye of Stan Getz, who spent lots of time in Scandinavia and continued a six-week tour with Johnson’s quintet in 1958.
